When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Simulect include the following:
  • This medication comes as a powder that is dissolved in fluid and given as an injection into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, injection). You will receive your first dose the day of your surgery and a second dose four days later.
  • Simulect can be given as an intravenous injection or as an intravenous infusion (a slow IV drip into a vein). If given as an infusion, it can take 20 to 30 minutes to receive your dose.
  • A healthcare provider will administer the injection in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic.
  • For this drug to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Make sure to keep all of your appointments with your healthcare provider.

Dosing Information

The dose of Simulect your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on your age and weight (in children). As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
