      Procrit is given as sub cutaneous injection, to help raise blood counts, that are lowered from the chemotherapy. I was taking it for low red blood cell count, due to MDS/MPD dx...it does work well, and you should have no problems with it. God Bless

      Thank you Vickie....I had read a lot of bad stuff (side effect from it). You have made me feel better.

      I took it the day after each one of my chemo treatments. I had no problems with it.
