How is TECENTRIQ given?

Your healthcare provider will give you TECENTRIQ into your vein through an intravenous (IV) line. TECENTRIQ is given once every 3 weeks, as long as you continue to respond to and tolerate the treatment.

How is TECENTRIQ given with chemotherapy?

Each treatment cycle is 3 weeks. Your initial 4 cycles will include TECENTRIQ plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and etoposide). After completion of chemotherapy, your doctor will continue TECENTRIQ alone.

In the initial cycles, each medicine will be infused one at a time. Your doctor will also decide how long each infusion may take.

Tips for staying comfortable during your infusion

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.
