Tips for staying comfortable during your infusions

Stay Warm

Some people feel cold during their infusion, so you may want to bring a warm blanket.

Bring a Companion

Ask a family member or friend to give you a ride and keep you company during your infusion.

Dress Comfortably

Some appointments take longer than others, so you may want to wear comfortable clothes.

Pass the Time

Entertain yourself with a book, a tablet, or your phone loaded with a TV show or podcast.

Pack a Snack

Ask your care team if it's okay to bring some light snacks or a bottle of water.

Take Notes

Bring a pen and your treatment journal (or a notepad) to jot down any questions or thoughts that come up.
