Evan changed FVIIIs – is this difficult, or risky?
Your safety and wellbeing are paramount
Your healthcare team will weigh up your options very carefully when considering a change to a different factor VIII product.
Be sure to explain clearly what you want to achieve from your treatment, so that your doctor can match your protection levels to your needs and lifestyle.
People with hemophilia A want products that:
- Enable them to infuse less often
- Offer longer levels of protection for activities
- Provide increased protection from bleeds1
The HemACTIVE survey investigated the reasons why people with hemophilia A are most likely to change products (see graph).1
If these reasons for changing products resonate with you, speak to your doctor. Let them know what you want to achieve with your treatment. They can help you to aim higher and find the right factor VIII product for you.
