Injectafer Lawsuits For Hypophosphatemia / Electrolyte Disorders Leading To Other Serious Medical Complications

Injectafer is an iron replacement injection used for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) since approved by the FDA in 2013. More recently, Injectafer has been associated with hypophosphatemia (HPP), potentially leading to other related serious medical complications, such as osteomalacia, arrhythmias, cardiac arrest, respiratory failure, and rhabdomyolysis. In turn, Injectafer lawsuits are being filed against the manufacturers of Injectafer, alleging a failure to adequately warn doctors and patients about Injectafer side effects.
Injectafer side effects include these two relatively rare conditions:
- Hypophosphatemia (HPP)
- Severe Hypophosphatemia (Severe HPP)
These two conditions are electrolyte disorders in which there is a low level of phosphate in the blood. Symptoms may include weakness, trouble breathing, and loss of appetite.
In turn, Injectafer-related hypophosphatemia can lead to serious medical complications including:
- Cardiac Arrest
- Respiratory Failure
Our law firm is investigating possible Injectafer lawsuits where patients have suffered Injectafer side effects.
