What are the side effects of Feiba VH?

Feiba VH (anti-inhibitor coagulant complex, vapor treated) 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 using Feiba VH with your doctor. You may need to be vaccinated for hepatitis A and B before you take this medication.

Parvovirus B19 can cause problems if you have weakened immune system or are pregnant. It is not known whether Feiba VH itself can harm a fetus. Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breast-feeding before you take this medication. You may experience an allergic reaction.  If you have difficulty breathing, hives, swelling of the lips or throat, rash, dizziness or fainting, seek emergent medical attention. 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.

Inform your doctor of any allergies you have, including latex allergy, before taking Feiba VH.
