Monoclate-P is used to treat bleeding episodes in both adults and children suffering from hemophilia A and is administered to patients with hemophilia during surgery or dental operations. Monoclate-P increases the antihemophillic factor VIII, a natural protein process normally in the blood, to aid in the clotting process. The lack of antihemophilic factor VIII in the bloodstream causes hemophilia A. This naturally produced substance is used to activate human antihemophilic factor VIII to decrease bleeding episodes. Healthcare professionals may also use this medication to treat other diseases that normally occur in the blood as well.
When taking Monoclate-P, you should inspect the medication carefully. It should be clear and free from any solid particles or discoloration. In most cases, this medication comes in a bag and should be checked for leaks before being administered.
It is important to follow the prescription exactly as written by your healthcare professional when administering Monoclate-P. Do not stop the treatment unless advised to do so by your healthcare professional as this might cause the disease to worsen. Monoclate-P is given by vein infusion by an expert to avoid any complications.
Common side effects include dizziness, sore throat, headache, itching, vomiting, upset stomach or abdominal pains, and tiredness. Infection at the infusion site is common as well. If you experience any of these conditions, consult your healthcare professional immediately.
Rare symptoms include an increase in the patient’s pulse rate, rashes or hives on the skin, unusual bruising or bleeding, breathing problems, discomfort or tightness in your chest, chilling, and fever. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention to avoid further complications that might prove to be fatal.
Patients should undergo a complete medical examination to determine whether it's safe for them to take the medication or not. During this examination, disclose a full medical history. Include any allergic reactions to foods or medications, any other medications you are taking (prescription or non-prescription), if you are suffering from other illnesses or if you are pregnant or may become pregnant during the treatment. All of this information is needed so your healthcare professional can determine if it's safe for you to take Monoclate-P. Women that become pregnant during treatment should consult their healthcare professional immediately. You should also talk with your healthcare professional if you are planning to have a surgical or dental operation.
Monoclate-P must be stored properly. It should be stored away from direct contact with heat and sunlight and is best kept in a refrigerator at the prescribed temperature.
