Setting goals from the start

Talking with your healthcare team about your goals during each appointment can help make sure you’re getting the most out of your REBLOZYL treatment.

Talking to your doctor about REBLOZYL

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have already received another medicine for your myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)-related anemia, before you start REBLOZYL, it’s important to set treatment goals with your healthcare team.

Here are a few questions that can start the
conversation with your healthcare team:

  • Is REBLOZYL right for me?
  • What are the goals of my REBLOZYL treatment?
  • What should I expect during my REBLOZYL treatment?
  • What side effects might I experience?
  • What are the most important things I need to know about REBLOZYL?
  • How long will it take to know REBLOZYL is working? How will I know it’s working?
  • Will my dose of REBLOZYL stay the same?

Every medicine comes with certain benefits and important safety considerations. These might include:

Having open conversations with your healthcare team is crucial to managing your treatment. Doing this from the start will set a strong foundation that will continue over time.

  • Ask questions
  • Come to appointments prepared with any information you’ve been keeping track of. This information can include recent blood transfusions, recent hemoglobin (Hgb) levels, and any new or changing symptoms
  • Talk openly about how treatment is going
