How should I infuse RIXUBIS®?1

RIXUBIS is given directly into the bloodstream and should be administered as ordered by your healthcare provider. You should be trained on how to infuse by your healthcare provider or hemophilia treatment center. Many people with hemophilia B learn to infuse their RIXUBIS by themselves or with the help of a family member.

Your healthcare provider will tell you how much RIXUBIS to use based on your weight, the severity of your hemophilia B, and where you are bleeding. You may have to have blood tests done after getting RIXUBIS to be sure that your blood level of factor IX is high enough to clot your blood.
