How to talk with your doctor about Kogenate® FS, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)
Interested in using Kogenate FS? Talk with your healthcare provider and consider asking some of these questions:
- Should I consider routine prophylaxis for my child?
- What are the side effects associated with factor VIII treatment?
- How safe is it to take rFVIII every other day?
- If treated episodically, or on demand, what is the likelihood of developing joint damage?
- What are the chances of being infected with a virus from rFVIII?
- How does the Kogenate FS work?
Always tell your doctor about these things, too:
- Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions.
- Tell your healthcare provider (and pharmacist) about all of the medicines you take, including all prescription and non-prescription medicines, such as over-the-counter medicines, supplements or herbal remedies.
- Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told you have heart disease or are at risk for heart disease or are at risk for heart disease.
- Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told that you have inhibitors to factor VIII (because Kogenate FS may not work for you).
