Taking FEIBA

Infusing, at home and on your own.

Gerrod, Actual FEIBA Patient

Once you and your doctor determine your dose and you receive training, you can infuse at home with a few steps. Create a comfortable routine and get ready to infuse.

FIND the right dose.

  • FEIBA comes in 3 dosage strengths: 500 units, 1000 units, and 2500 units.1
  • Color-coded boxes and vial labels make it easy to identify each dose level.
  • Work with your doctor to decide which strength is right for you.

Store at room temperature.

  • Choose a cabinet, closet, drawer, or cupboard that keeps FEIBA away from direct sunlight and extreme hot or cold.
  • Storage conditions should not exceed 77°F (25°C).
  • Store FEIBA in its original package to protect it from light.
  • Avoid freezing. It could damage the diluent vial.1

PREP in just 3 steps.

FEIBA comes packaged with the BAXJECT II Hi-Flow Needleless Transfer Device. Mixing with the BAXJECT II Hi-Flow device requires fewer steps than the previous BAXJECT device, and it's color-coded for more intuitive reconstitution (also known as "mixing").1,14

NOTE: The BAXJECT II Hi-Flow device should be used only with FEIBA. The BAXJECT II Hi-Flow device is intended for use with a single vial of product and is for single use only. Therefore, reconstitution and withdrawing a second vial into the syringe requires a second BAXJECT II Hi-Flow device.

SET THE MOOD WHILE YOU INFUSE.

It's important to remain still while you're infusing. Relax with music and soft lighting or find an activity that can help you stay calm. Read, watch a movie, or call Grandma Betty. She always loves to hear from you.

FEIBA [Anti-Inhibitor Coagulant Complex]
Indications and Detailed Important Risk Information for Patients

INDICATIONS FOR FEIBA [Anti-Inhibitor Coagulant Complex]

FEIBA is an Anti-Inhibitor Coagulant Complex indicated for use in hemophilia A and B patients with inhibitors for:

  • Control and prevention of bleeding episodes
  • Use around the time of surgery
  • Routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes.

FEIBA is not indicated for the treatment of bleeding episodes resulting from coagulation factor deficiencies in the absence of inhibitors to coagulation factor VIII or coagulant factor IX.

DETAILED IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION FOR FEIBA [Anti-Inhibitor Coagulant Complex]
WARNING: EVENTS INVOLVING CLOTS THAT BLOCK BLOOD VESSELS
  • Blood clots that block blood vessels and their effects have been reported during post-marketing surveillance following infusion of FEIBA, particularly following administration of high doses and/or in patients with a risk of forming blood clots.
  • If you experience any of these side effects, call your doctor right away.

You should not use FEIBA if:

  • You had a previous severe allergic reaction to the product (reactions causing discomforts that are damaging and life threatening)
  • You have signs of development of small blood vessel clots throughout the body
  • You have sudden blood vessel clots or blocked blood vessels, (e.g., heart attack or stroke)

Events involving blood clots blocking blood vessels can occur with FEIBA, particularly after receiving high doses and/or in patients with risk factors for clotting.

Infusion of FEIBA should not exceed a dose of 100 units per kg body weight every 6 hours and daily doses of 200 units per kg of body weight. Maximum injection or infusion rate must not exceed 2 units per kg of body weight per minute.

At first sign or symptom of a sudden blood vessel clot or blocked blood vessel (e.g., chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, altered consciousness, vision, or speech, limb or abdomen swelling and/or pain), stop FEIBA administration promptly and seek emergency medical treatment.

Allergic-type hypersensitivity reactions, including severe, sometimes fatal allergic reactions that can involve the whole body, can occur following the infusion of FEIBA. Call your doctor or get emergency treatment right away if you get a rash, hives or welts, experience itching, tightness of the throat, vomiting, abdominal pain, chest pain or tightness, difficulty breathing, lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea or fainting.

Because FEIBA is made from human plasma it may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents, e.g., viruses, the variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) agent and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent.

The most frequent side effects observed during the prophylaxis trial were anemia, diarrhea, bleeding into a joint, signs of hepatitis B surface antibodies, nausea, and vomiting.

The serious side effects seen with FEIBA are allergic reactions and clotting events involving blockage of blood vessels, which include stroke, blockage of the main blood vessel to the lung, and deep vein blood clots.

Call your doctor right away about any side effects that bother you during or after you stop taking FEIBA.
