What is Desferal Mesylate

Desferal Mesylate is a prescription medication used for the treatment of iron overload in individuals with certain conditions, such as thalassemia or other chronic anemias. It helps remove excess iron from the body. While Desferal Mesylate can effectively manage iron overload, it does not provide a cure for the underlying conditions.
