    Wepox Uses:

    For treating anemia after chronic kidney disease

  • The Injection is a synthetic protein that stimulates the production of red blood cells in your bone marrow. It is used to treat anemia caused by kidney disease in dialysis patients, both adults, and children. Anemia occurs when your body does not produce enough red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout your body. As a result of anemia, this medication can make you feel less tired and weak.
  • For treating anemia after chemotherapy

  • The injection is a synthetic protein that stimulates the bone marrow (the soft tissue inside the bones) to produce more red blood cells. The natural human form of this protein may be reduced when undergoing chemotherapy to treat certain types of cancer. Injection can help you avoid needing a blood transfusion. Iron supplements may be given to you to make the treatment more effective.
  • How to use

  • The injection is given either under the skin or into a vein, as determined by your doctor. In most cases, the injections are given by a nurse or a doctor. The dosage depends on your weight and the cause of your anemia. Iron supplements, both before and during treatment, may improve the treatment's efficacy. Although injection should be stored in the refrigerator, it should be used at room temperature.
