WHAT TO EXPECT ON TREATMENT DAYS

Your doctor may recommend the following on treatment days:

  • Your height and weight measured to find the right dosage
  • A short physical exam to check your blood pressure, pulse, breathing, and temperature
  • An IV tube put in your arm
  • A blood sample taken

On treatment days, you can also expect to go through these 3 steps:

1. Pre-infusion

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.

2. Infusion

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.

3. Observation

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.

If you experience any side effects while taking TRODELVY, tell your doctor right away. Please read the Important Safety Information below for TRODELVY and the next section: Side Effects.
