Precautions While Using This Medicine

If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or if they become worse, check with your doctor. This is especially important for children under two years of age since they may have an increased level of side effects.

It is especially important to notify your healthcare professional immediately if you have any signs or symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as chest pain, dizziness, hives, skin rash, or trouble breathing.

Patients of African or Mediterranean ancestry are at higher risk of serious side effects and should be carefully evaluated by their healthcare professional before starting this medicine.

It is very important to use this medicine properly. The medicine must be given over time, and not administered all at once. There is a very specific 5 day treatment regimen that must be followed, and chemotherapy must be started 4 to 24 hours after the first dose of rasburicase.
