About CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML

CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML belongs to the class of medication called 'blood-forming agent'  primarily used to treat anaemia (low red blood cell count) in person with long-term serious (chronic) kidney disease and persons receiving chemotherapy for some types of cancer (except for bone marrow or blood cells' cancer). CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML helps to reverse anaemia and reduce the need for blood transfusion. Anaemia occurs when the body has a lower amount of red blood cells or haemoglobin. In chronic kidney disease, the kidney gets damaged and doesn't filter the blood, leading to anaemia.

CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML contains a protein 'Darbepoetin alfa' which works by providing signals to the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML is a biologic response modifier and erythropoiesis-stimulating protein. In chronic kidney disease, when the kidney fails to produce sufficient 'erythropoietin protein' which aids in the formation of red blood cells, CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML stimulates the production of this protein in the bone marrow. 

CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML comes in the formulation of injection that should be injected by the healthcare provider. Do not self-administer. The most common side effects of CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML are shortness of breath,  cough, low blood pressure during dialysis, headache, body aches, diarrhoea, injection site pain and abdominal pain. Most of these sides effects of CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

If you have uncontrolled/untreated high blood pressure or red cell aplasia (a type of anaemia) due to darbepoetin alfa or epoetin alfa, please inform your doctor before taking CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML to avoid any complications. Also, mention all the other medications you are taking to affect the way CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML works. Inform your doctor immediately, if you feel weak, lightheaded, tired, or short of breath, or if your skin looks pale as it may be signs that the body has stopped responding to CRESP 25MCG INJECTION 1ML.
