When and How to Receive ItSome general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Arzerra include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of a liquid solution that is given as an intravenous (IV) infusion (a slow injection into a vein) every one to four weeks, with the more frequent doses given earlier in treatment.
- The injection will be given by a healthcare provider in a healthcare setting, such as a doctor's office, clinic, or infusion center. It can take several hours to receive your dose.
- You will be given other medications 30 minutes to 2 hours before your Arzerra dose, to help reduce the chance that you will have a reaction to the infusion.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Make sure to keep all of your appointments to receive Arzerra.
