Iron is an important component of haemoglobin and myoglobin that are responsi-ble for oxygen transport within the body. It also serves as a cofactor of several essential enzymes like cytochromes that are involved in electron transport. It is essential for catecholamine metabolism and the proper functioning of neutrophils.
Alcoholism [as it can increase absorption and storage in the liver and increase its toxicity]; allergies and asthma [with parenteral use]; rheumatoid arthritis can worsen after administration of IV iron preparation.
Gastro-intestinal discomfort, diarrhoea, and vomiting.
