Bivalirudin Drug Information:

Bivalirudin is an anticoagulant (thrombin inhibitor) that helps prevent the formation of blood clots. Bivalirudin is used to prevent blood clots in people with severe chest pain or other conditions who are undergoing a procedure called angioplasty (to open blocked arteries). Bivalirudin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. You should not receive bivalirudin if you have any major bleeding from a surgery, injury, or other medical trauma. Tell your doctor if you are using blood thinners or receiving any other medications to treat or prevent blood clots. Learn more
