Possible Side Effects
General Information Please note The possibility of infection from using medicines made from human blood plasma cannot be totally ruled out. This warning includes known, unknown and new viruses as well as some other germs. Several different steps have been taken to make this possibility very unlikely. These include the careful selection of donors and testing of the plasma they provide for specific types of infection. Furthermore, the method used to produce the medicine from their blood plasma includes steps to kill or remove viruses like HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Immunoglobulins have not been associated with hepatitis A or parvovirus B19 infections possibly because the antibodies against these infections, which are contained in the product, are protective. It is strongly recommended that every time you receive a dose of Human Hepatitis B Immunoglobulin the name and batch number of the product are recorded in order to maintain a record of the batches used. Please remember Since hepatitis B can kill you the expected benefits of your medicine will usually be greater than the risks of suffering any harmful side effects.
Common Drug Side Effects chest pain, shortness of breath, shaking, dizziness, swelling of the face, coating of the tongue, mouth ulcers, joint pains, slight fever.
