Allergic type hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, are possible with Coagadex.

Coagadex is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the components of the product.
Coagadex is made from human plasma and may contain infectious agents such as viruses and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease agent. No cases of transmission of viral diseases, vCJD or CJD, have been associated with the use of Coagadex.
