Treating high levels of iron in the blood.

Deferasirox is an iron-chelating agent. It works by binding to the extra iron in the blood and removing it from the body.

Precautions:

Do not use other iron chelating medicines such as deferoxamine (Desferal), unless your doctor has told you to.

While you are taking deferasirox, do not take antacids that contain aluminum, such as Amphojel, Gaviscon, Maalox, Mi-Acid, Mylanta, Rulox, and others.

Deferasirox may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.

Breastfeeding:

There are no data on the excretion of deferasirox into human milk. Because many drugs are excreted into human milk, caution is recommended when deferasirox is administered to a nursing woman.
