  • Desferal Overview

    Desferal is used along with other treatments (such as causing vomiting with syrup of ipecac, stomach pumping) to treat sudden iron poisoning. It is most effective when given as soon as possible after the iron was eaten. Desferal can also be used to help get rid of iron in patients with high iron levels due to many blood transfusions. Deferoxamine is an iron-binding agent that belongs to a class of drugs known as heavy metal antagonists. It works by helping the kidneys and gallbladder get rid of the extra iron. Desferal is not recommended for use in children less than 3 years old (see also Precautions section).

  • How to Use Desferal

    Depending upon your medical condition, Desferal is injected directly into a muscle, under the skin, or into a vein as directed by your doctor. Dosage of Desferal is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you are giving Desferal to yourself at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check Desferal visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. If you are using Desferal to treat high iron levels, your doctor may direct you to take vitamin C (ascorbic acid) after you have been using Desferal for at least 1 month. Taking vitamin C will help replace the loss of vitamin C due to high iron levels and help the medication work to get rid of the iron. If you have heart disease (such as heart failure), tell your doctor before taking vitamin C while using Desferal (see also Drug Interactions). The manufacturer recommends that adults using Desferal take no more than 200 milligrams of vitamin C a day. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
