Once you have a prescription, your physician and BioMarin RareConnections™ can help you find an infusion center and help make sure that your NAGLAZYME® (galsulfase) arrives at the center for you. If you don’t have a prescription for NAGLAZYME but think that NAGLAZYME may be right for you, talk to your doctor. Once you have a prescription, BioMarin RareConnections can help with billing and insurance.
How the infusion works
Here are the basic steps for a NAGLAZYME infusion:
- You’ll go to the infusion center for your appointment
- Before treatment, the nurse will make sure you don’t have a fever or infection
- You may get an antihistamine or fever reducer to help you during the infusion
- The nurse will start an intravenous line (IV), prepare the NAGLAZYME, and start the infusion
- The infusion will take about 4 hours
- The nurse will check with you regularly to make sure you continue to feel OK. The rate of infusion may be adjusted, if needed
If you don’t feel well or have questions, talk to your nurse. The nurse can answer your questions, and may be able to help you be more comfortable.
- After the infusion, you’ll wait a short while to make sure everything is still OK. Then you’ll go home until the next week.
