Official AVEED warnings: Read Before Consenting

What is the most important information I should know about AVEED?
AVEED may cause serious side effects, including:
 A serious lung problem. AVEED can cause a serious lung problem called a pulmonary oil
microembolism (POME) reaction. POME is caused by tiny droplets of oil that have traveled to
the lungs. Symptoms of a POME reaction may include:
o cough or urge to cough
o difficulty breathing
o sweating
o tightening of your throat
o chest pain
o dizziness
o fainting
 Serious allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). AVEED can cause a serious allergic reaction
right after receiving the injection. Some of these allergic reactions may be life threatening.
These reactions can happen after you receive your first dose of AVEED or may happen after
receiving more than 1 dose.
You may need emergency treatment in a hospital, especially if these symptoms get worse
over the 24 hours after your AVEED injection.
These side effects may happen during or right after each injection. To be sure that
you are not having one of these reactions:
 You need to stay in the doctor’s office, clinic, or hospital for 30 minutes
after having your AVEED injection so that your doctor can watch you for
symptoms of POME or a serious allergic reaction.
 You can only get AVEED at your doctor’s office, clinic, or hospital
