VPRIV (velaglucerase alfa) has not been tested for effectiveness or safety in children under four years of age. Pregnant and breastfeeding women will likely not experience any adverse effects, but should discuss the risks of receiving VPRIV with their doctors before doing so. People who have allergies to VPRIV or similar medications, should talk to their doctors about a different course of treatment. Ask your doctor if you are unsure about your eligibility to use VPRIV.
