Patients Improperly Being Prescribed Feraheme: Medical Malpractice

Feraheme is an iron supplement prescribed to kidney failure patients. However, patients with iron allergies have experienced severe anaphylactic allergic reactions, some which have caused death. AMAG Pharmaceuticals is the manufacturer of Feraheme (ferumoxytol) and warns of allergic reaction in the prescribing information. However, the FDA recently collated data showing that patients with a known allergy or with multiple allergies were being prescribed this drug. Over half the patients with severe side effects had some type known of allergy or allergies. Our firm has handled combination product liability and medical malpractice cases for decades, and we stand ready to answer any questions you may have about injury or death from Feraheme or any medication containing iron.
