If your body is not getting enough oxygen because you don’t have enough iron, you may feel tired or short of breath. This is called anemia. Iron sucrose (Venofer®) is an injectable form of iron that helps your body make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is found in your red blood cells. When there is not enough iron, red blood cells don’t have enough hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout your body. This pamphlet explains how to take Venofer®, side effects, and signs of an allergic reaction.
