Who should not take Ceprotin?

Ceprotin should not be taken if you are allergic to this medication, and may not be able to take it if you have kidney problems, a blood disorder, or are on a low-sodium diet. Talk to your doctor about all of your allergies and medications you are currently taking. Ceprotin is listed as a pregnancy category C medication, which means it has not been studied in pregnant women, but it may cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Ceprotein may interact with numerous drugs, including heparin, acenocoumarol, abciximab, bivalirudin, argatroban, clopidogrel, cilostazol, danaparoid, dalteparin, dipyridamole, desirudin, enoxaparin, eptifibatide, fondaparinux, phenprocoumon, phenindione, ticlopidine, tirofiban, tinzaparin, and warfarin. If you take any of these medications, talk to your doctor to see if Ceprotin is appropriate or if dosages should be adjusted.
