Infusion Clinic (Iron & Vitamins and Osteoporosis)
What To Expect From An Iron Infusion
An iron infusion involves administering iron directly into the bloodstream through an IV line. This treatment can effectively cure anemia or raise a low red blood cell count by boosting the iron levels in the blood, which is crucial for the production of hemoglobin.
Improvement Can be Gradual
After completing your iron transfusion, it may take up to 6-10 weeks to experience improvement. The process will be gradual, but you will likely notice increased energy, better sleep, and improvement in your mood and memory. Many people have reported feeling better after completing the transfusion.
Are there any side effects?
Most side effects are minor and disappear within a few days. You may experience:
- Temporary changes in the way you taste food and drinks
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle and joint pain
- Shortness of breath
- Itchiness and rash
- Increased or decreased blood pressure or heart rate
- Burning sensation at the site of the injection
Once these side effects subside, patients report having more energy, better sleep, improved mood and a sharper memory.
Who should get an iron infusion?
If you have iron deficiency, regardless of the cause, we may suggest IV iron to you. IV iron can be beneficial for patients who have difficulty absorbing iron from food, experience chronic blood loss, or are taking certain medications. In such cases, treatment may require IV iron.

Osteoporosis is a significant health concern that elevates the risk of fractures and can even lead to increased mortality rates. We offer two key treatments to address this issue:
- 6 monthly Prolia Injections: These injections are administered every six months to strengthen bone density and reduce the risk of fractures associated with osteoporosis.
- Annual Zoledronic acid (Aclasta) Infusions: these are another effective approach to managing osteoporosis, providing long-term benefits to bone health.
