Temsirolimus Dosage

General Information on Receiving Temsirolimus

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with temsirolimus include the following:
  • This medication is given as an injection into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, injection) once a week.
  • A healthcare provider will administer the injections in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic.
  • The injections are given slowly, over a period of 30 to 60 minutes. This is called an intravenous infusion.
  • You will receive a different medication via IV about 30 minutes before your dose of temsirolimus to help prevent allergic reactions to temsirolimus.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Make sure to keep all of your appointments to receive this medication.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or temsirolimus dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
