Alphanine Sd Heat Treat/Solv
IV


This medication is used to prevent or control bleeding in people with little or no factor IX (due to hemophilia B, Christmas disease). Factor IX is a protein (clotting factor) in the blood that works with other clotting factors to help the blood clot and therefore stop bleeding. People with little or no factor IX are at risk for bleeding longer after an injury/surgery or bleeding suddenly (often in the joints/muscle) without an obvious cause.This medication should not be used to reverse the effects of "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin). Most types of this medication should not be used to treat other types of factor deficiencies (e.g., factors II, VII, VIII, X) or factor problems (e.g., inhibitor to factor XIII). If you are using this medication for one of these conditions, consult your doctor or pharmacist to make sure that you are using the right product.
