Preparing for treatment with JELMYTO
It's normal if you are feeling a little worried before starting JELMYTO. Taking an active role in your treatment plan can help. Here is some information that will help you to get started and prepare for your dose of JELMYTO.
Before JELMYTO is given, you will need to take sodium bicarbonate. Your doctor will give you instructions on how to take this. You will need to take this each time you get JELMYTO.
Things to discuss with your doctor:
- Let your doctor know if you are taking a water pill (diuretic)
- Tell your doctor if you have any other medical conditions or take any other medications. There is a chance that your doctor may tell you to take additional medicine, or change the medication that you are currently taking, once you start treatment with JELMYTO
- Discuss whether general anesthesia is right for you. This is not required for JELMYTO, but only the two of you can decide if this, or any other form of medication, is needed
