How To Use
  • Follow all instructions for proper handling, mixing, and dilution with the correct IV fluids.
  • If you have any questions regarding the use of Zevalin, consult the doctor or pharmacist.
  • Ibritumomab is not a radioactive chemical by itself.
  • There is no risk of radioactive exposure with Zevalin kit until it is combined with the In-111 or Y-90; all radioactive handling precautions should be followed at that time.
  • The radioactive medication will be added to Zevalin by a properly-trained medical professional.
  • Your doctor may prescribe medications to be taken 30 minutes before Zevalin is given.
  • These drugs may help decrease the risk and/or severity of allergic reactions and some side effects.
  • After being given another medication (rituximab), Zevalin will be injected into a vein (IV) over 10 minutes exactly as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Generally, another rituximab dose is given 7 to 9 days later, followed by Zevalin, given IV over a 10 minute period.
  • The dosage is based on your medical condition, response to therapy, and an established dosing guideline.
  • Consult your doctor for details.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Learn how to store and discard needles and medical supplies safely.
  • Consult your pharmacist.

Side Effects
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, headache, stomach upset, dizziness, and/or flu-like symptoms (e.g., cough, chills, muscle aches) may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur: easy bruising or bleeding, persistent sore throat or fever, swelling of the hands/feet/face, unusual tiredness and weakness, loss of appetite, unusual weight loss, pain (e.g., stomach, muscle, back, or joint pain).
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: mental/mood changes, unusually fast heartbeat, black stools, coffee-ground vomit, one-sided weakness, vision problems.
  • An allergic reaction to Zevalin is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include: rash, itching, swelling, trouble breathing.
  • Rarely, Zevalin may cause certain cancers (e.g., AML).
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: blood disorders (e.g., anemia, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia), previous bone marrow therapy (myeloablative), current infections, any allergies.
  • Zevalin may make you dizzy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Because Zevalin can decrease your immune system function, do not have immunizations/vaccinations without the consent of your doctor and avoid contact with people who have recently received live vaccines (e.g., oral polio vaccine).
  • Use caution with sharp objects like safety razors or nail cutters and avoid activities that may increase the chance of getting cut, bruised, or injured.
  • Zevalin is not recommended for use during pregnancy; it may cause fetal harm.
  • Women of child-bearing age, and men, are recommended to use effective birth control methods during and for up to 1 year after treatment with Zevalin.
  • Consult your doctor for more details.
  • It is not known whether Zevalin passes into breast milk.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose or your dose is stopped, contact your doctor immediately to establish a new dosing schedule.

Drug Interactions
