Proper Use

Drug information provided by: IBM Micromedex

A nurse or other trained health professional will give you or your child this medicine in a hospital. This medicine is given through a needle placed in one of your veins. The medicine must be injected slowly, so your IV tube will need to stay in place for 4 to 7 hours. It is usually given every 2 weeks.

Your doctor will give you other medicines (eg, allergy, fever, or steroid medicine) before you receive this medicine to help prevent unwanted effects.
