Dosing & Administration of PROLASTIN-C
PROLASTIN-C is a medicine that is given through a needle into a vein. While it is a prescription medicine, PROLASTIN-C is not a prescription you pick up at your pharmacy. PROLASTIN-C is shipped directly to you, to your doctor, or to an infusion center authorized by you and your doctor.1
The dosing of PROLASTIN-C is based on how much you weigh. The recommended dose is 60 milligrams for each kilogram (2.2 pounds) of your body weight given once a week.1
You can receive PROLASTIN-C at a rate of up to 0.08 milliliters for each kilogram per minute. The average infusion takes about 15 minutes to infuse.1
No refrigeration necessary
PROLASTIN-C does not need to be refrigerated and can be stored at room temperature, but the temperature should not exceed 25°C (77°F). You should also avoid freezing PROLASTIN-C because the bottle holding the diluent (sterile water) might break.1
