Iron Infusion

The Victorian Gut Centre offers an intravenous iron infusion, if high doses of iron are required to top up the body or if oral supplements are not tolerated.

Why should I have an Iron Infusion?

Iron infusions are usually prescribed by doctors to treat significant iron deficiency and/or anaemia.


Some basics on the day of your infusion include:

  • you will need to bring with you the iron preparation (Monofer or Ferrinject)  – usually prescribed by your GP or specialist.
  • no change in medications or diet are required prior to the infusion.
  • a small IV drip is placed put in your arm or hand by a trained nurse or doctor
  • the infusion usually takes about half an hour and an observation period is required to monitor for adverse reactions / side effects which are rare.
