Iron Sucrose

Iron sucrose, the active ingredient, is composed of a Ferric Hydroxide (iron (III) - hydroxide) core surrounded by a large number of non-covalently bound sucrose molecules. It is a medicine that contains iron which is a key ingredient for making new red blood cells. Iron sucrose injection is an iron replacement product that is used to treat iron deficiency anemia.

Iron is an essential nutrient that provides oxygen and energy to the body. Lack of iron has many symptoms including fatigue, tiredness, and exhaustion. Also trouble sleeping, poor thought processing / unable to think clearly / mind fog, also anxiety. So, Iron is also necessary for your bone marrow to build healthy new red blood cells and provide oxygen to your organs and tissues through hemoglobin Iron is an important part of hemoglobin (Hb), the red pigment which gives blood its color. Haemoglobin is the substance that carries oxygen around your body Iron is also a key component of enzymes that manufacture energy in the muscles.

Iron Sucrose 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.


Iron sucrose 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.
