A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine in a hospital or cancer center. 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 less than an hour. It is given 2 to 14 days (for ALL) or 2 to 11 days (for DLBCL) after completing treatment with other cancer medicines (eg, fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, bendamustine).
You should stay within 2 hours of the office or center to check for unwanted effects for at least 4 weeks.
It is very important that you understand the requirements of the Kymriah® REMS program, and become familiar with the Kymriah® 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.
This medicine needs to be given on a fixed schedule. If you miss a dose, call your doctor, home health caregiver, or treatment clinic for instructions.
