When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Treanda include the following:
  • Treanda comes as a powder that is mixed with sterile water. It is given as a slow injection through a needle into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, infusion) once a day for two days in a row, every 21 to 28 days.
  • The injection is normally given in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital, infusion center, or a healthcare provider's office. It is given over a 30- to 60-minute period.
  • Your healthcare provider may give you other medicines to take before your injection to help minimize the risk for certain side effects.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. It is important to keep your appointments to receive your Treanda doses.

Dosing Information

The dose of Treanda your healthcare provider recommends will vary, based on a number of factors, including:
  • Your height and weight
  • The reason you are using it
  • 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.
