On treatment days, you can also expect to go through these 3 steps:
You may be given medicines before your infusion to help prevent infusion reactions, including a fever reducer, antihistamines, or corticosteroids. Your doctor may also give you medicine to help reduce or prevent nausea or vomiting.
Your first infusion will take approximately 3 hours. Your doctor will observe you during the infusion. After that, if prior treatment was well tolerated, your infusions with TRODELVY will take 1 to 2 hours.
After each infusion, your doctor will watch for reactions for at least 30 minutes.
Your doctor may give you medicines to take home that can help you manage the side effects of TRODELVY. Keep track of when and how often side effects occur, as well as their severity, so your doctor can best support you.
