HOW KADCYLA IS GIVEN FOR HER2+ METASTATIC BREAST CANCER

With KADCYLA, you receive both a HER2-targeted treatment and a chemotherapy—at the same time

Like many cancer medicines, KADCYLA is given by intravenous (IV) infusion. KADCYLA is given in your doctor’s office or at a hospital or infusion center.

How often is KADCYLA given?

You will get an infusion of KADCYLA once every 3 weeks.

KADCYLA infusion time

  • After each infusion, your healthcare team will take some extra time to watch how you respond to treatment
  • If side effects occur, your healthcare team may adjust, delay, or stop your treatment

Before you start taking KADCYLA

  • Talk with your doctor about any other medical conditions you have. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, or plan on getting pregnant
  • Always tell your doctor about any medicines you are taking. Be sure to include over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements

What to do if you miss a treatment

  • If you miss a dose of KADCYLA, do not wait until your next 3-week cycle of treatment
  • Tell your doctor or nurse right away. Work with them to reschedule the treatment you missed
