Your doctor will give you medicines before your treatment with RITUXAN HYCELA™ (rituximab/hyaluronidase human). Medications commonly used before treatment include antihistamines, acetaminophen, and steroids.
Your healthcare provider should prescribe medicines to help prevent certain infections during treatment and for up to 12 months following treatment with RITUXAN HYCELA.
Before each injection of RITUXAN HYCELA treatment, your doctor or nurse will ask you questions about your general health. Tell your doctor or nurse about any new symptoms. RITUXAN HYCELA is given as an approximately 7 minute subcutaneous injection at a clinic or infusion center. Subcutaneous injections are typically given with smaller needles than those used for intravenous infusions. You will receive your treatment as an injection under the skin in your abdomen. After receiving RITUXAN HYCELA, you will be monitored for at least 15 minutes to watch out for any side effects.
The RITUXAN HYCELA administration time does not include the amount of time required for chemotherapy administration.
