Suffered from Life-Threatening Side Effects of Injectafer®?
Have you or someone you love endured injuries after using the prescription drug Injectafer?
Our dangerous drug injury attorneys have been helping clients for more than 30 years to fight for the compensation they deserve.
Serious health complications related to the use of Injectafer (ferric carboxymaltose) often result in a patient suffering from severe hypophosphatemia (HPP).
Severe HPP may have affected you or your loved one in the following life-threatening ways:
- Extreme fatigue
- Bone fractures and overall skeletal pain/abnormalities
- Respiratory failure
- Heart failure
Did Injectafer® Hurt Instead of Heal?
The FDA approved the use of the injection Injectafer® for adults with iron-deficiency anemia in 2013. It is commonly used for patients who don’t respond well to other iron supplementation, such as oral pills. Anemia is not an uncommon medical condition, specifically among women. It is important to treat because iron deficiency can make everyday life harder, as well as cause heart issues.
Some patients who use Injectafer to treat their iron deficiency experience other life-altering health effects—effects they should have been warned about before starting the drug. Hypophosphatemia is when a person has dangerously low phosphate levels in their system.
In some Injectafer® cases, a patient suffers such extreme side effects from low phosphate levels that they don’t survive. Those who do survive can potentially battle the health effects for weeks, months or years to come.
Not Warned About Severe Hypophosphatemia?
You may not have been warned about serious side effects and injuries if you’ve been prescribed Injectafer within the last few years. A comparison study between Injectafer and an alternate IV anemia drug shows HPP and severe HPP as side effects associated primarily with Injectafer versus a similar but different prescription.
Simply put, when there is a safer and still effective way to treat iron-deficiency anemia, should Injectafer even be marketed at all? And with the various cases of the drug causing HPP or other harm to patients, shouldn’t those who manufacture the drug list honest and specific warnings about it?
