Deferiprone brands in India

The only deferiprone brand in India is known as Kelfer by Cipla which we sell for $2.99 each. This is a generic version of USA brand Ferriprox.  Our price for deferiprone is among the lowest online.

We are able to offer this drug for much less than our competitors because we have a low overhead and buy in bulk at lower India prices. This means we can then pass these savings onto our customers.

Is deferiprone from India safe?

Yes. There is no difference in the ingredients which are used for CIPLA generics and the more expensive name brand drugs. There are always risks associated with drugs and supplements, but our generics are made with quality raw materials. There is no difference in the way that Kelfer performs when compared to Ferriprox. Kelfer is as safe as Ferriprox.

We have not received any complaints from customers who have ordered Kelfer and have many repeat customers, mainly from the USA as they cannot afford USA brand Ferriprox.

Deferiprone cost comparisons

Ferriprox is the US brand name of Deferiprone. The company that manufactures this drug uses the same raw materials, but charges higher prices than any non-USA generic versions such as Kelfer.

According to a recent study conducted of bricks and mortar US pharmacies, the cost of Ferriprox averages a total monthly cost of $18,762 (bloodjournalorg).

Even those with Medicare coverage may have a high co-payment to purchase Ferriprox.

The co-payments range is between $467 and $1867. The out of pocket expense depends upon the individual's program plan and how much of the deductible has been met.

These prices put this drug far out of the reach of hundreds of thousands of people who cannot pay the co-payment.

What if you have been prescribed Ferriprox but cannot afford it?

If you are not in the financial position or covered by healthcare insurance to afford Ferriprox, then it makes sense to try and find a cheaper alternative. The only one available is a generic version made by Cipla' - marketed as Kelfer.

Unless your prescription says no generic substitutes are allowed, then you can financially save thousands by switching to Kelfer.

Our deferiprone price is extremely affordable (unlike the price for USA brand Ferriprox) and our customers who buy this medication report that they are now saving thousands of dollars a year.

However, It makes sense to buy deferiprone 500mg at a trusted online pharmacy due to the fact that you could potentially save thousands of dollars on this specialty drug.

For instance, most of the top USA drug pharmacies sell 30 x brand Ferriprox 500 mg capsules starting from $1,650 dollars - and that includes using a coupon!

Our generic deferiprone (Kelfer) is only $150 for 50 tablets - same drug, massive savings!

What is Deferiprone 500mg ?

The Ferriprox drug contains Deferiprone as an active ingredient and is used for the treatment of excess iron in the blood and other conditions.

The generic version of Ferriprox is known as Kelfer.

It is manufactured by CIPLA under the brand name Kelfer, at a low cost from India. It belongs to the class of drugs called iron chelators.

Deferiprone is used to treat people with too much iron in their bodies. This can be caused by recurring blood transfusions. Excess iron in the bloodstream can become toxic and lead to diabetes, liver conditions, heart failure, and stunted growth in children.

This drug is an iron removal medication and is a second line treatment when the first iron removal drugs are not as effective as necessary or cannot be used.

Deferiprone mechanism of action

The drug has a chelating effect that causes it to be attracted to ferric iron ions. It binds to the iron which is a type of selective process that is unique to this medication. Neutral 3:1 levels of Deferiprone to iron complexes form which are stable over a variety of pH values.

Deferiprone is not as highly attracted to aluminium, copper or zinc. The binding effect flushes excess iron from the body through urination while having less of an effect on other metals.

Deferiprone solubility

Deferiprone solubility in water is 293.2; in ethanol 298.2; and N=Methyl-2-pyrrodlidone 303.2. In non-water based mixtures, Deferiprone is a class 4 pyridone with pyridin 4 (1H) 1 substituted and 1 and 2 positions by methyl groups, with the 3 position by a hydroxy group. This drug is lipid soluble, also referred to as fat soluble.

Lipid soluble substances have the ability to pass through the cell membrane with greater ease than water solubles. Molecules diffuse through the lipid bilayer without interference by hydrophobic fatty acid chains.

The good news is that this drug is more quickly absorbed into the body and it goes to work faster than water soluble medications.

Deferiprone prescribing information

Dosage for adults and children is adjusted for achieving a negative iron balance. The optimum dosage of Kelfer is 75 mg/kg daily with dosages divided in either 2 or 4 equal doses.

Patient needs may vary. For some, a lower dosage of 50 mg/kg daily may suffice. For others, dosage may be increased to a maximum of 100 mg/kg daily.

The level of iron overload determines the dosage amount needed to achieve the optimum results for iron reduction in the body. This means that the dosage will be different from one person to another.

Medical monitoring is recommended

Patients using Kelfer should have their serum ferritin concentrations and other indicators of body iron load monitored to assess the long term effectiveness in controlling the body iron load.

Testing should be performed every 2-3 months. Blood testing is the method that is used to monitor iron load.

Physician recommendations to adjust dosage should be customized to the response and therapeutic goals of each patient on a case by case basis.

When should the use of Kelfer be discontinued?

When serum ferritin measurements fall below 500 μg/l, interruption of Kelfer treatment should be considered.

You should consult with your health care provider before stopping Kelfer or prior to making changes in the dosage. Any side effects or unusual symptoms should be reported to your physician immediately.

You may not be a candidate for Kelfer 500mg if you have a history of agranulocytosis, or recurrent episodes of neutropenia or have a hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or any of the excipients.

Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not take Kelfer as it could cause harm to your unborn child.

If you are planning to become pregnant, you should consult with your doctor about the use of Kelfer and when you should stop taking it before attempting to become pregnant.

Serious negative effects

As with any drug or supplement, Deferiprone may cause negative effects. While some may experience mild to moderate symptoms, not everybody that uses this drug will have them.

The most serious side effect of Kelfer/Ferriprox is a decrease in white blood cell count. This condition is known as severe agranulocytosis or neutropenia.

Clinical studies show that 1% of patients taking this drug experience this serious medical condition. Symptoms may include sore throat, fever or symptoms of the flu.

Very common side effects

The most common side effects experienced in greater than 1 out of 10 people using Deferiprone are:

abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and discolored urine (reddish brown). Taking Kelfer with food may help to ease nausea or vomiting. Discoloration of the urine is common and is not harmful. If symptoms become severe, contact your health care provider for instructions on reducing their severity.

Common side effects which occur in 1 in 10 people or less

Increased appetite, headache, diarrhea, increase in liver enzymes or low white blood cell count also known as Neutropenia and agranulocytosis.

When should side effects be reported?

Any side effects that you experience should be reported to your doctor or pharmacist. This includes the side effects listed and any that are not listed. Reporting side effects can help in determining the safety of this treatment.

What to do if you miss a dose

If you forget to take a dose of Kelfer, take it as soon as you remember. You should take your next dose at the regularly scheduled time. This drug is most effective when you do not miss any doses. If more than one dose is missed, do not take a double dose, instead, continue with the regular dosage schedule.

What about an overdose?

Kelfer - Ferriprox is prescribed by physicians in accordance with your age, weight, gender and type of medical condition being treated. Taking an overdose of Kelfer may cause toxicity in your body which is potentially harmful.

If you overdose on Kelfer contact USA – 1-800-222-1222.

Drug interactions

No interactions between Defeiprone and other medications have been reported. However; due to the unknown mechanism of Deferiprone induced-neutropenia, medications associated with neutropenia or agranulocytosis must not be taken.

Because of the potential for interactions to occur between this drug and trivalent cation-dependent medications (which include antacids containing aluminum), they should not be used concomitantly with Deferiprone.

It is further recommended that caution is used when taking vitamin C and Deferiprone concurrently because adverse interactions have been reported.

Deferiprone FDA approval

The United States Food and Drug Administration approved Deferiprone October 14, 2011 as part of the Accelerated Approval Program. This means that it is legal to purchase and use in the United States.

The Department of Health in India approved Deferiprone for clinical use in 1994, recognizing Kelfer, manufactured by CIPLA as the approved alternative formulation.

Deferiprone manufacturer

CIPLA is one of the largest manufacturers of pharmaceuticals in the world. They procure the raw materials from India, which are the same ingredients used in the more expensive brand name drugs sold in the US and other countries.

The quality of the materials is no different than higher priced brands and the formulation is the same so as a consumer, you are getting the same product under a different name at a lower price.

Kelfer vs Ferriprox

Kelfer and Ferriprox are the marketing names of the iron chelating drug Deferiprone. Ferriprox is the brand drug made by Apotex Inc (Canada), whilst Kelfer is the cheaper generic equivalent made by Cipla.

They are made of exactly the same ingredients and they are both drugs in the iron chelating class.

They perform exactly the same function.

There are some major differences that exist between them. These are found in the labelling and the pricing.


There are many online pharmacies that are out of stock of Deferiprone or Ferriprox. This will not be the case for us. We understand that this medication is vital for preserving the health of people for whom this is recommended.

We always keep Kelfer in stock. This product is not slated for discontinuation so you can rest assured that when you need to place your order, it will be processed in a timely manner.

The benefits of Kelfer 500 mg over Ferriprox 500 mg

Iron chelators are often very expensive. The name brand, Ferriprox can be too expensive for many people who are either under-insured or who have no health care insurance. We are doing our part to help put the medications that people need to improve their health within reach.
