A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine in a medical facility. It is given through a needle placed in a vein. It must be given slowly, so the needle will have to remain in place for at least 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Your doctor will give you other medicine (eg, diphenhydramine) 1 hour before you receive this medicine to help prevent allergic reactions.
This medicine comes with a patient information leaflet. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.
