What are the side effects of Autoplex-T?

In the vast majority of cases, Autoplex-T (anti-inhibitor coagulant complex) does not cause severe side effects. Headaches and flushing are common and not considered serious. Talk to your doctor right away if you notice a fever or chills or if you experience nausea or dizziness. Call 911 for emergency medical treatment if you notice any of the following while receiving Autoplex-T:

  • signs of an allergic reaction, such as breathing problems; closing of the throat; itching; rash; hives; chest tightness; fainting; dizziness; or swollen tongue, lips or face      
  • signs of a blood clot, such as red, swollen or painful legs or arms; pain in your jaw, chest or left arm; warm swelling or pain in your calf; cough; breathing pain or difficulty; fingers turning blue; sudden vision problems; severe headaches; feeling weak on one side; confusion; or slurred speech
  • symptoms of anemia, such as pale skin, lack of energy, fatigue and shortness of breath     
  • a red, swollen or painful area where the medicine was injected
  • blood pressure or heart rate changes
  • joint pain and rash up to two weeks after using Autoplex-T 
Because it is made from human blood plasma, there is a small chance that Autoplex-T can transmit infections. Consult your doctor if you notice signs of the following: parvovirus B19 (including runny nose, sleepiness, fever, chills, with joint pain and a rash occurring after two weeks) or hepatitis A (including fatigue, lack of appetite, low fever for days or weeks, followed by abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, possibly with yellowed eyes or skin and dark urine).
