What is MonoFer?

MonoFer is a medication used to treat iron deficiency anemia in adults, administered as an injection. It contains ferric derisomaltose which more rapidly corrects anemia compared to blood transfusions. Due to a more direct absorption into the bloodstream, this options is more effective than pills and can work within one visit.

It is a prescription treatment only available under a doctor’s recommendation and supervision.

Iron deficiency is associated with impairment of natural immunity and cell mediated immunity, thereby contributing to an increased risk for infections.

There's a correlation between iron deficiency and cardiac function, which may lead to heart failure.

When is it used?

  • Ineffective or unsuitable oral iron: If you have trouble tolerating oral iron supplements due to side effects like constipation or nausea, or if oral iron isn’t effectively raising your iron levels, your doctor might recommend IV therapy
  • Rapid iron correction needed: In severe cases of iron deficiency anemia, where a quick boost in iron is necessary, IV therapy can be the preferred option.
  • Certain medical conditions: Inflammatory bowel disease or chronic kidney disease can affect iron absorption, making IV therapy a more suitable choice.

Benefits For Patients with Iron Deficiency Anemia

  • Fatigue and tiredness
