Artemether Injection is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency in the following indications:

  • Used to treat iron deficiency anemia (not enough iron in the blood) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Where there is a clinical need for a rapid iron supply,
  • In patients who cannot tolerate oral iron therapy or who are non-compliant,
  • In active inflammatory bowel disease where oral iron preparations are ineffective.


Artemether Injection is used to replenish body iron stores in dialysis-dependent and non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD) patients. Iron deficiency may be caused by blood loss during dialysis, increased erythropoiesis secondary to erythropoietin use, and insufficient absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract. Iron is essential to the synthesis of hemoglobin to maintain oxygen transport and to the function and formation of the physiologically important heme and non-heme compounds. Most dialysis patients require intravenous iron to maintain sufficient iron stores.


Drug interactions have not been studied. However, Iron sucrose may reduce the absorption of concomitantly administered oral iron preparations.
