Coagulation Factor VIIa (koh-a-gyoo-LAY-shun FAK-tor SEV-en A)
Treats and prevents bleeding episodes in people who have hemophilia A or B with inhibitors to Factor VIII or Factor IX. Also treats and prevents bleeding in patients with acquired hemophilia or congenital factor VII deficiency.
You should not use this medicine if you have had an allergic reaction to coagulation factor (recombinant), or to mouse, hamster, or bovine proteins (found in drugs such as abciximab, darbepoetin alfa, infliximab, Aranesp®, Remicade®, Rituxan®, or Reopro®).
Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a history of kidney disease, or blood clots known as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Tell your doctor if you have any arterial diseases (such as blocked or hardened arteries), an infection, or any injury or untreated wounds.
Your doctor will need to check your blood at regular visits while you are using this medicine. Be sure to keep all appointments.
If your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse, call your doctor.
