Experience with Injectafer?

Postby wantok » Fri Jun 15, 2018 1:08 pm

As the medical experts regarding RLS say Injectafer (iron infusion--not ferric sucrose) is the most effective therapy, I am wondering what experience sufferers have had. I have both RLS and PLMD. Thanks.

I had 2 infusions of Injectafer a little over a year ago. It certainly was a lot more convenient than the other iron infusions I've had. Just 2 short sessions instead of 5 or 6 sessions of several hours each. It helped some, but iron doesn't get rid of my RLS entirely.
