I had only mild itching. Although on the 2nd day of treatment I began having chest pain with upper respiratory symptoms that have been unresponsive to steriod, antibiotis and myculictics,

On Aug 11,2013 9pm, I was bit on the inside left foot right above the heel by a copperhead in TX, my dad took me to McKinney Medical Ctr. where I was in the ER maybe 15 minutes and started to go into shock, sweating, hot, confusion, heart was beating out of my chest(the er nurses just told me it was from anxiety)WRONG! The venom was moving through me, I wasn't anxious about anything, a snake bit me, I'm in the hospital, those are the facts duh! They gave me a pain medication Delatin or delotted(sp?) which made me so loopy and nutso, then I started violently vomiting to which they thought it'd be a good idea to give me anti nausea meds, that certainly did not work then I had diarrhea and was vomiting for the the next 6 hours, from my understanding they had me on IV antibiotics and didn't administer the CroFab until around Noon the next day which certainly pissed me off they waited so long. My blood pressure dropped low at one point but while they were giving me the 3 vials I did not have any reactions, my foot ankle and leg did swell up like a tree trunk and I got a huge black blister at the bite site. They kept me on anti biotics IV for 3 days and by Wed I was having awful migranes, and body aches, I was released and the first day home I was lethargic and out of it, it has been 8 days since I was bitten and I have had a migrane and neck pain and body aches and am jittery and lethargic but cant sleep. I mainly feel like I have the flu or like I am really dehydrated, but Im not. The wound is itching like crazy but swelling is almost completely gone and I can put all my weight back on my foot, no more tightness or pain. I am still taking Doxycyclin by capsule twice a day and that definitely has made me nauseous. I read that this will continue for up to 24 days. OH JOYRead More Read Less

My 18 year old daughter was bitten by a Pit viper on September 26 ,2011 in 5 minutes her foot was turning black and was swollen beyond recognition she was treated at Spaulding Hospital within 3 hours of the bite .Fast acting calling 911 keeping her calm and getting her to the right hospital for the Crofab treatment not only saved her life her foot as well .In southeast Ga I learned Spaulding is the only place that can treat a snake bite .She has had no side affects such as kidney damage or heart issues nor did she vomit .I watched the blackness drain from her foot as the antivenin did it's job .We are amazed at the results of Crofab she never got an infection ,no bone scrapes absolutely nothing !

I received a shallow bite from a copperhead and required over ten vials, at about $3K each. Two weeks later I am experiencing intense itching on the hand below the bite. An apparent delayed allergic reaction to the CroFab.

Severe pain in vein when injected, followed by acute hives, itching swelling flushing, each time the Crofab was given. In the weeks following, I have had joint pain, bad muscle pain, bleeding, dizzy, nausia, itching, flushing and severe low back pain.
