A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. The medicine is given through a needle placed in a vein.
The medicine must be given slowly, so your IV tube will need to stay in place for 2 hours and 15 minutes. You may also receive medicines beforehand (e.g., diphenhydramine, Benadryl®) to help prevent possible allergic reactions to the injection.
This medicine comes with a patient information leaflet. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.
