What are the risks of taking Prolastin C?

Prolastin C is manufactured from the blood plasma of human donors and may contain contagious viruses or other infectious agents. Even though the human blood plasma used to make Prolastin C is carefully screened, tested, and purified, you still run the risk of contracting a contagious illness such as hepatitis. Discuss the risks and benefits of taking Prolastin C with your doctor before you begin using it. Your doctor may choose to vaccinate you against certain contagious illnesses to eliminate your chance of contracting them from Prolastin C. If you develop symptoms of infection, such as sore throat, fatigue, nasal congestion, excessive drowsiness, persistent nausea and vomiting, joint pain, yellowing of the eyes or skin, darkened urine, or persistent fever, while taking Prolastin C, talk to your doctor right away.
