Bivaflo 250mg Injection

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Bivaflo 250mg Injection belongs to a group of medicines known as an anticoagulant or blood thinner. It helps prevent and treat blood clots. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. It also prevents and treats clot formation in the veins of your legs, lungs, brain, and heart.

Bivaflo 250mg Injection is commonly used in patients with irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation) to prevent clot formation. It also reduces the risk of getting clots in people who have undergone knee or hip replacement surgeries. It is given as a drip into a vein by a doctor or a nurse. You can reduce your risk of having a blood clot by making changes to your lifestyle, such as not smoking, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and losing weight if you need to.

The most common side effects of this medicine are headache, low platelet level, and fever. It may also make you bleed more easily than normal, for example, having nosebleeds or bruising. You should be extra careful while shaving, cutting nails, or using sharp objects during treatment with this medicine.

This medicine may not be suitable for everyone and should be used with caution. Inform your doctor, if you have severe kidney or liver problems. Do not take this medicine if you are currently bleeding or if you are taking other medicines to reduce blood clotting. You should not breastfeed while using this medicine. Unlike other anticoagulants, a regular blood test (PT-INR) is not required while taking this medicine.

Benefits of Bivaflo Injection

In Treatment and prevention of Blood clots

Bivaflo 250mg Injection is a type of medicine known as an anticoagulant. Although it does not “dissolve” blood clots, it can prevent them from getting bigger so your body can dissolve them over time. It will also prevent new ones from forming. It works by blocking a substance in the body which is involved in blood clotting. This keeps your blood flowing freely around your body and makes it less likely that a clot will form inside a blood vessel.

This can help prevent or reduce damage caused by stroke, clots in your lungs (pulmonary embolism) or other blood vessels (thrombosis). It can also make it less likely that parts of a clot will break off and travel to other parts of the body. It is given as an infusion (drip) into a vein under the supervision of a doctor. You should make appropriate lifestyle changes to help this medicine be effective.

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them
