A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine in a hospital. It is given through a needle placed into one of your veins. The medicine must be injected slowly, so your IV tube will need to stay in place for at least 15 to 60 minutes.
This medicine should come with a Medication Guide. It is very important that you read and understand this information. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.
Your doctor may give you a few doses of this medicine until your condition improves, and then you may be switched to an oral medicine that works the same way. If you have any concerns about this, talk to your doctor.
