Experienced Injectafer Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys – Call to File Today
Anemia is seen in certain groups of individuals who are either genetically unable to make iron for their blood, as well as women who are still menstruating. Blood loss typically means the loss of iron in one’s blood, and it may cause anemia which manifests as weakness, tiredness and lack of motivation as well as low oxygen levels in the body. Individuals that are at risk for anemia are provided with supplementary anemia such as the one administered via Injectafer shots which are meant to deliver iron to the body in a convenient and regular fashion. Anemia, if not treated, may lead to birth defects in children whose pregnant mothers suffered anemia prior to their birth. While anemia can be treated using nutrition, some cases of excessive iron loss must be treated via the administration of Injectafer as well as other blood-building injections and pills. However, Injectafer is now being alleged to cause a serious condition called hypophosphatemia, or dangerously low phosphate levels in the blood and body, which may lead to catastrophic complications such as bone fracture and respiratory arrest. If you were given Injectafer injections and then went on to suffer low phosphate levels, you may be eligible for compensation, and we’re here to help with that.

Iron is needed for the production of hemoglobin, without which you may not be able to properly oxygenate all your cells and body systems. Hemoglobin is made by your red blood cells, which relies on iron from either plant-based foods or animal meat for its production.
How Does Injectafer Work?
Injectafer attempts to normalize low iron levels. The injection is usually performed by your healthcare provider as they see fit, typically once a month or as needed. Injectafer contains the active ingredient ferric carboxymaltose, or FCM in short which replaces and replenishes iron stores in your body. The injection is done in a slow release fashion, and you may need to attend several medical appointments for the same so as to prevent you from having an adverse reaction from the medication.
Unfortunately, the administration of iron has the unintended effect of lowering phosphate in the body, which it needs for the formation of bones as well as to stabilize brain neurons and other mental processes.
Here are some of the signs of hypophosphatemia:
- Confusion or delirium
- Irritability or anger
- Heart attack
- Osteomalacia or bone weakening
- The breakdown of the body’s muscles
- Bone breakage
Injectafer Safety Studies
Multiple studies have shown that Injectafer may promote low phosphate levels in the blood, putting people’s lives at risk. One such study which was published back in February showed that over 70 percent of all individuals who were injected with Injectafer developed HPP compared to only 8 percent in individuals who took the blood-building infusion medication Monoferric. In addition, a 2018 study showed that hypophosphatemia was common in over 50 percent of individuals treated with Injectafer
Injectafer is currently being made, designed or developed by the following companies:
- Daiichi Sankyo Group
- American Regent Inc.
- Vifor Pharmaceuticals Management
- Luitpold Pharmaceuticals Inc.
