Will my REBLOZYL dose and length of treatment be the same as other patients?
Your doctor will decide what dose of REBLOZYL is right for you based on your weight. It is recommended that people receiving REBLOZYL start on 1 milligram (mg)/kilogram (kg), once every 3 weeks. Your dose may go up. You and your healthcare team can work together to see what REBLOZYL dose works for you.
Finding the right dose
Based on how REBLOZYL was studied, many patients experienced at least one dose modification. An increase in your dose of REBLOZYL does not necessarily mean REBLOZYL isn’t working for you. You may actually just need a higher dose to get the response you and your healthcare team are looking for. That’s why it can be helpful to be aware of your dose and to track your symptoms and any transfusions you need between doses.
You may want to write down when you receive red blood cell (RBC) transfusions and any symptoms you feel between doses of REBLOZYL.
Understanding your transfusion burden will help your healthcare team understand if you need an increase in dose to meet your treatment goals.
