Amifer IV is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency in the following indications:

The dose of Amifer IV must be individually calculated for each patient according to the total iron deficit calculated with the following Ganzoni formula
Total amount of Amifer IV (20 mg of iron per ml) to be administered is equivalent to the total Iron deficit (mg) devides by 20 mg/ml
Amifer IV should only be given intravenously.
