  1. Do any of you think this is a safe drug to administer in a physicians office(not in a hospital setting)? Why or why not? Thanks.

    Our clinic used to give it with a test dose first over 15 minutes, all the while standing by with syringe, needle, and benedryl ready. Then, after several close calls -- allergic reactions bordering on anaphylaxis - we switched to Venofer. Much safer!
