About CosmoFer

What CosmoFer is and what it is used for

CosmoFer contains a combination of iron and dextran (a chain of sugar molecules). The type of iron in CosmoFer is the same as that found naturally in the body called 'ferritin'. This means that you can have CosmoFer by injection in high doses.

CosmoFer is used for low levels of iron (sometimes called 'iron deficiency' and 'iron deficiency anaemia') if :

• oral iron does not work or you cannot tolerate it

• your doctor decides you need iron very quickly to build up your iron stores

CosmoFer is a prescription only medication. More information is available in the Patient Information Leaflet and the Summary of Product Characteristics
