PATIENT INFORMATION

  • VPRIV should be administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional. VPRIV is a treatment that is given intravenously (by IV) every other week. The infusion typically takes up to 60 minutes.
  • Patients should be advised that VPRIV may cause hypersensitivity reactions or infusion-related reactions. Infusion-related reactions can usually be managed by slowing the infusion rate, treatment with medications such as antihistamines, antipyretics and/or corticosteroids, and/or stopping and resuming treatment with increased infusion time. Pre-treatment with antihistamines and/or corticosteroids may prevent subsequent reactions. Treatment with VPRIV should be carefully re-evaluated in the presence of significant evidence of hypersensitivity to the product [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
