Active pathological bleeding.
Increased risk of spinal/epidural hematoma in anticoagulated patients receiving neuraxial anesthesia or undergoing spinal puncture (see full labeling); monitor for signs/symptoms of neurological impairment. Increased risk of bleeding; monitor for signs/symptoms of blood loss; discontinue if active pathological hemorrhage occurs.

Potentiated by P-gp inhibitors (eg, amiodarone, azithromycin, verapamil, ketoconazole, clarithromycin): reduce Bevyxxa dose (see Adult); monitor closely and evaluate any signs/symptoms of blood loss. Antagonized by P-gp inducers (eg, carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampin, St. John's wort); avoid Bevyxxa use. Severe renal impairment (CrCl ≥15–<30mL/min): avoid Bevyxxa if receiving concomitant P-gp inhibitors.
