BEVYXXA

What is BEVYXXA ?

Bevyxxa (betrixaban) blocks the activity of certain clotting substances in the blood.

Bevyxxa is a prescription medicine used to prevent blood clots in adults who have a serious illness and decreased ability to move. Blood clots are more likely when you are bedridden and you cannot move around.

BEVYXXA is Uses For?

Anagrelide is used to treat a certain blood disorder (thrombocythemia), which is caused by your bone marrow making too many platelets. Platelets are a blood cell that the body uses to form blood clots. Too many platelets can cause problems with your circulation, including unwanted blood clots and bleeding problems. This drug reduces the number of platelets in the bloodstream by blocking their production.

Medical Condition Before Taking Agrylin?

You should not use Bevyxxa if you are allergic to betrixaban, or if you have active or uncontrolled bleeding.

Bevyxxa may cause you to bleed more easily, especially if you have kidney disease or you use other medicines such as:

  • medicines to treat or prevent blood clots;
  • certain antidepressantsantibiotics, antifungal medicines, HIV medicines, or heart rhythm medicines; or
  • aspirin or an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) such as ibuprofen (AdvilMotrin), naproxen (Aleve), celecoxibdiclofenacindomethacin, or meloxicam.

Bevyxxa can cause a very serious blood clot around your spinal cord if you undergo a spinal tap or receive spinal anesthesia (epidural). This type of blood clot could cause long-term paralysis, and may be more likely to occur if:

  • you have a genetic spinal defect;
  • you have a spinal catheter in place or if a catheter has been recently removed;
  • you have had spinal surgery, or repeated spinal taps or epidural anesthesia; or
  • you take an NSAID, or use other medicines to treat or prevent blood clots.

To make sure Bevyxxa is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • liver or kidney disease;
  • an artificial heart valve; or
  • a bleeding or blood clotting disorder.

 

It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. However, taking this medicine during pregnancy may increase the risk of bleeding while you are pregnant or during your delivery. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
