Darbepoetin alfa 40 micrograms solution for injection in pre-filled pen
What darbepoetin alfa is used for:
Your doctor has given you darbepoetin alfa (an anti-anemic) to treat your anemia. Anemia is when your blood does not contain enough red blood cells and the symptoms may be fatigue, weakness and shortness of breath. Darbepoetin alfa works in exactly the same way as the natural hormone erythropoietin.
Do not use darbepoetin alfa
• if you are allergic to darbepoetin alfa or any of the other ingredients of this medicine

Other medicines and darbepoetin alfa:
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using, have recently used or might use any other medicines.
