Exjade Drug Lawsuit SourceExjade Side Effects: Gastrointestinal Complication Lawsuits

Exjade (deferasirox) is an oral iron chelator developed to treat chronic iron overload due to multiple long-term blood transfusions, which are necessary to treat conditions such as beta-thalassemia and other chronic anemias.

As with any treatment, there are side effects associated with Exjade. These problems are more likely to occur if the dose is too high for the level of iron overload or the rate of iron loading.

You should not use Exjade if you have severe kidney or liver disease, advanced cancer, a blood cell or bone marrow disorder or low levels of platelets in your blood. And you shouldn’t use Exjade if you’re allergic to it, or if you have:

  • Severe liver or kidney disease
  • Advanced cancer
  • Bone marrow disorder
  • Low levels of platelets in your blood

Exjade may cause serious — perhaps fatal — stomach/intestinal problems, including:

  • Gastrointestinal ulceration
