New Prescription

The kidneys produce a hormone that tells the bone marrow to produce more blood cells. My husbands are shutting down, making him critically anemic. The anemia sends him into a sleep cycle that can last days.

Today we were prescribed Recormon.

The active ingredient in Recormon is a hormone that stimulates the production of red blood cells.

Recormon must be injected, similar to an insulin shot in the stomach.
Weekly.

Recormon is expensive. $200 for a month, and that was discounted.

At least he'll be awake for a month.
