What should I know before receiving Feiba VH?

Feiba VH is made from human blood plasma. This plasma has been tested and treated for diseases, but there is a small chance it could still be contaminated with disease-causing pathogens, such as hepatitis A virus or parvovirus B19. Discuss the risks and benefits of Feiba VH with your doctor. You may need to be vaccinated for hepatitis A and B before you receive this medication. Parvovirus B19 can especially cause problems if you have a weak immune system or are pregnant. It is not known whether Feiba VH can harm an unborn or nursing baby, so make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before you receive this medication. You may not be able to use this drug if you have liver disease, hardened arteries, a current infection or injury or another blood disorder. Tell your doctor about any allergies you have, including latex, before you receive Feiba VH.
