Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed.

Coagulation factor X is given as an infusion into a vein. A healthcare provider will give your first dose and may teach you how to properly use the medication by yourself.

Coagulation factor X must be mixed with a liquid (diluent) before using it. When using injections by yourself, be sure you understand how to properly mix and store the medicine.

Gently swirl but do not shake the medicine. The mixture should appear clear or slightly pearl-like. Do not use the mixed medicine if it looks cloudy or has particles in it. Prepare a new kit or call your pharmacist for a new kit.

Prepare your dose only when you are ready to give an injection. Use the injection within 1 hour after mixing your dose.

You will need frequent medical tests.

Tell your doctor if this medicine seems to stop working as well in preventing a bleeding episode.

You may store this medicine at room temperature or in a refrigerator. Protect from light and do not freeze. Keep the injection kit in its original package until you are ready to prepare an injection.

Throw away any unused coagulation factor X after the expiration date on the medicine label has passed.

Use a needle and syringe only once and then place them in a puncture-proof "sharps" container. Follow state or local laws about how to dispose of this container. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets.
