Clolar

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Clolar include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a liquid that is given as a slow injection into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, infusion). It is usually given once a day for five days in a row every two to six weeks.
 
  • It will take about two hours to receive each Clolar dose.
 
  • Clolar infusions are normally given by a healthcare provider in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic, where you can be closely monitored.
 
  • You will receive IV fluids and other medications throughout each five-day treatment cycle to help reduce the risk for certain Clolar side effects.
 
  • Your healthcare provider may also recommend other medicines, such as medications for nausea and vomiting, steroids, or antibiotics, to help reduce or prevent side effects.
 
  • You should drink plenty of fluids during treatment to help stay hydrated.
 
  • Let your healthcare provider know right away if you feel anxious during the infusion. He or she can slow down the infusion, which may help reduce the anxiety.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. It is important to keep all of your appointments to receive Clolar.
 

Dosing Information

The dose of Clolar your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on your height and weight and how you respond to the medication. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
