Proper Use

Drug information provided by: Merative, Micromedex®

A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine in a medical facility. It is given through a needle placed into one of your veins using a pump. The medicine must be injected slowly, so your IV tube will need to stay in place for less than 30 minutes. It is given 3 days after completing treatment with other cancer medicines (eg, fludarabine, cyclophosphamide).

Your doctor will check you for unwanted effects at least daily for 7 days. Your doctor may also want you to stay close to the hospital or center for at least 4 weeks after your infusion.

It is very important that you understand the requirements of the Yescarta™ and Tecartus™ REMS program, and become familiar with the Tecartus™ medication guide. Read and follow these instructions carefully. Ask your doctor if you have any questions. Ask your pharmacist for the medication guide if you do not have one.

You may be given other medicines (eg, allergy medicine, fever medicine) 1 hour before starting treatment with this medicine.
