Rhogam Ultra-Filtered Plus


As with all immune globulin preparations, the physician should discuss the risks and benefits with the patient. The most common adverse reactions are local reactions including swelling, induration, redness and mild pain at the site of injection, and a small number of patients have noted a slight elevation in temperature.

Systemic reactions to RhoGAM or MICRhoGAM are extremely rare, however allergic responses to RhoGAM or MICRhoGAM may occur. Patients should be observed for at least 20 minutes after administration. Patients should be informed of the early signs of hypersensitivity reactions including hives, generalized urticaria, tightness of the chest, wheezing, hypotension and anaphylaxis.

The physician should provide the patient with a completed RhoGAM Patient Identification Card and advise the patient to retain the card and present it to other health care providers when appropriate.
