Zanosar

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Zanosar include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a powder that is mixed with liquid and injected into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, injection). Your healthcare provider will tell you how often you need to receive this medicine.
 
  • Zanosar is normally given by a trained healthcare provider in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic.
 
  • Your healthcare provider may give you other medicines to help prevent or lessen certain Zanosar side effects. Make sure you know how you should be taking these other medicines.
 
  • You may receive this medicine either as a rapid injection or more slowly over 15 minutes to 6 hours.
 
  • Avoid getting this medication on your skin. If contact does occur, immediately wash the area with soap and water.
 
  • For Zanosar to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

The dose of Zanosar your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your height and weight
  • How you respond to and tolerate it
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
 
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
