      Drug Interactions

      As with all parenteral iron preparations, iron sucrose should not be administered concomitantly with oral iron preparations since the absorption of oral iron is reduced. Therefore, oral iron therapy should be started at least 5 days after the last injection of Iron Sucrose.


      Iron sucrose is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency in the following: - Where there is a clinical need to deliver iron rapidly to iron stores. - Patients who cannot tolerate oral iron therapy or who are noncompliant. - In active inflammatory bowel disease where oral iron preparations are ineffective. - Non-dialysis dependent-chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD) patients receiving an erythropoietin. - Non-dialysis dependent-chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD) patients not receiving an erythropoietin. - Hemodialysis dependent-chronic kidney disease (HDD-CKD) patients receiving an erythropoietin. - Peritoneal dialysis dependent-chronic kidney disease (HDD-CKD) patients receiving an erythropoietin

      When not to Use

      The use of iron sucrose is contra-indicated in cases of: - Known hypersensitivity to iron sucrose or any of its components. - Anemias not attributable to iron deficiency. - Iron overload or disturbances in utilization of iron. - Patients with a history of asthma, eczema or other atopic allergy, because they are more susceptible to experience allergic reactions. - Pregnancy first trimester .

      Merofer Iv Precautions


      Parenteral administered iron preparations can cause allergic or anaphylactoid reactions, which may be potentially fatal. Therefore, treatment for serious allergic reactions and facilities with the established cardio-pulmonary resuscitation procedures should be available.

      Merofer Iv Warnings

      Warning 1

      In patients with liver dysfunction, parenteral iron should only be administered after careful risk/benefit assessment. Parenteral iron administration should be avoided in patients with hepatic dysfunction where iron overload is a precipitating factor, in particular Porphyria Cutanea Tarda (PCT). Careful monitoring of iron status is recommended to avoid iron overload .

      Warning 2

      Parenteral iron must be used with caution in case of acute or chronic infection. It is recommended that the administration of iron sucrose is stopped in patients with ongoing bacteremia. In patients with chronic infection a risk/benefit evaluation has to be performed, taking into account the suppression of erythropoiesis .

      Warning 3

      Hypotensive episodes may occur if the injection is administered too rapidly. Allergic reactions, sometimes involving arthralgia, have been more commonly observed when the recommended dose is exceeded .
