Information about Maltofer Injection (500mg/10ml)

Introduction

Maltofer is an iron replacement medicine. It is used to treat a type of anemia where you have fewer amount of red blood cells due to insufficient iron in your body (iron-deficiency anemia). Iron is needed to produce the red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body. Maltofer is given by injection or infusion (saline drip) into a vein by your doctor or nurse. You will be watched carefully to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction. It is usually given as two doses, seven days apart. Your doctor will decide how much and how often you may need injections to improve your anemia. Eating a well-balanced diet that has enough iron, vitamins and minerals can help to replenish your iron reserves. Good sources of iron include meat, eggs, raisins, broccoli, and lentils. The most common side effects include vomiting, headache, dizziness, feeling hot (flushing) or sick, high blood pressure and pain or irritation at the site of injection. Most of these usually go away within a short time of the injection. If you are bothered by them or they go on for longer, talk to your doctor or nurse. You should not have this medicine if your anemia is not caused by a lack of iron. Before taking it, tell your doctor if you have rheumatoid arthritis, asthma or other allergies, high blood pressure or liver problems. This may affect your treatment. It is not known whether this medicine is safe for use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding so please take advice from your doctor. You will have tests to check your blood cells and iron levels, monitor your progress and check for side effects. It may be advisable to limit alcohol during treatment.

Precaution

Hypersensitivity Reactions Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic-type reactions, some of which have been life-threatening and fatal, have been reported in patients receiving Ferric carboxymaltose. Patients may present with shock, clinically significant hypotension, loss of consciousness, and/or collapse. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity during and after Ferric carboxymaltose administration for at least 30 minutes and until clinically stable following completion of the infusion. Only administer Ferric carboxymaltose when personnel and therapies are immediately available for the treatment of serious hypersensitivity reactions. Other serious or severe adverse reactions potentially associated with hypersensitivity which included, but not limited to, pruritus, rash, urticaria, wheezing, or hypotension may occur. Hypertension Transient elevations in systolic blood pressure, sometimes occurring with facial flushing, dizziness, or nausea were observed. These elevations generally occurred immediately after dosing and resolved within 30 minutes. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hypertension following each Ferric carboxymaltose administration. Lactation Clinical studies showed that transfer of iron from Ferric Carboxymaltose to human milk was negligible (≤1%). Based on limited data on breast-feeding women it is unlikely that Ferric Carboxymaltose represents a risk to the breast-fed child.
