Restless Leg Syndrome With Iron-Deficiency Anemia
RLS is a condition that causes discomfort in your legs and/or causes you to compulsively move your legs when you are relaxed, mainly at night. Some researchers believe the cause of RLS symptoms is that there is not enough iron in the brain. Iron taken as a pill has not been shown to improve RLS. Iron given as an intravenous infusion (IV – medicine given directly into the vein) is quickly absorbed. It has been shown to help relieve the symptoms of RLS. Injectafer® is an IV iron preparation that can be given in larger doses over a shorter period of time than other types of IV iron. Injectafer® is approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat adult patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA).
- The purpose of the study is to see if Injectafer® (intravenous iron) will work to treat restless leg syndrome (RLS) in patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA). The study is also being done to see if Injectafer® is safe as a treatment for people with RLS and IDA.
