From facing a bill of $390 for some medication, just one medication, my husband was able to get it for $18.95. We couldn't believe it, we thought it was a joke! I thought it was a scam! ... We're currently saving about $600 a month just on 4 different medications. That makes a huge difference. — Rebecca

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.
