Procrit (generic: epoetin alfa) is a prescription medication used to treat anemia (low red blood cell count) caused by kidney failure, cancer chemotherapy, or zidovudine (a medication used to treat HIV infection). Procrit is also used before or after surgery to eliminate the need for blood transfusions. Procrit belongs to a group of drugs called erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs). It works by causing the bone marrow to make more red blood cells.
This medication comes in an injectable form that is injected just under the skin, or directly into a vein (IV). It is usually given 1 to 3 times a week.
Common side effects of Procrit include joint, muscle or bone pain, fever, rash, and cough.
