How To Use

  • This medicine is given through a needle placed in one of your veins. Medicines used to treat cancer are very strong and can have many side effects.
  • Before receiving this medicine, make sure you understand all the risks and benefits.
  • It is important for you to work closely with your doctor during your treatment. You will receive this medicine while you are in a hospital or cancer treatment center.
  • A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. This medicine is given before chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
  • You may also receive other medicines to help prevent nausea and vomiting. You will be watched closely for unwanted side effects while you are receiving this medicine. Drink plenty of fluids during the 24 hours before receiving this medicine.
