How to use Treanda Vial

This medication is injected slowly into a vein by a health care professional as directed by your doctor.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, body size, and response to treatment. Before each cycle, you should have blood tests to find the best dose for you and to see whether you need to wait before receiving this drug again.

Before you receive this medication, your doctor may direct you to take a fever reducer, an antihistamine, and a corticosteroid such as dexamethasone to help prevent side effects. Use these additional medications exactly as directed by your doctor. (See also Side Effects section.)

If bendamustine leaks out of the vein into the surrounding area, it may cause serious skin and tissue damage. Tell your health care professional right away if you experience pain, irritation, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Prompt treatment of the leakage will help reduce discomfort and possible skin damage.
