Procrit (epoetin alfa) for Anemia: "I have pots syndrome And low blood plasma.. My count in the beginning was 11.5 And a year and a half later After going through heck twice a week It made me very ill Bad belly issues Just worse them I was But im having that feeling I had before I'm tired I can't eat I'm weak...there had to be something else they can give me. .."
Procrit (epoetin alfa) for Anemia: "I have had three injections for my Low red blood cell production by bone marrow. I feel more energetic after the injection and for several days after. By the third, fourth, or fifth day I feel as tired as before the beginning of treatment. Each week the energy seems to last longer. I felt faint on the fifth day after the third injection. I recovered in about an hour and a half."
Epogen (epoetin alfa) for Anemia: "Works well but very costly"
Procrit (epoetin alfa) for Anemia: "Went from 8.5 hemoglobin to 11 and then back to 9 after 5 months of weekly injections of 40000 units. Did not work for me."
Procrit (epoetin alfa) for Anemia, Chemotherapy Induced: "I found this medicine to be a life saver. After my first month of treatment for CLL/SLL, I was thrown into chemo-induced anemia extremely quickly. After having a rough week with a small fever, my hemo-oncologist gave me a shot of this and one week later I thought I had been reborn! Terrific stuff and will help platelets out magnificently! Give it a shot, no pun intended. Feel Better & Take Care!"
Procrit (epoetin alfa) for Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure: "Has helped me."
Epogen (epoetin alfa) for Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure: "Starting second week usage of Erythropoetin for possible kidney failure but definite anemia on a 6-7 year old black Labrador. Seems to be recovering slowly along with doses of amlodipine/norvasc, enalapril and doxycycline."
