LEQEMBI infusions

Tap on the questions below to see the answers.

What is an infusion?

LEQEMBI is an intravenous (IV) infusion.

This means a needle is placed in a vein in your arm to give the medicine.

1 hour icon

How long do infusions take?

Each infusion takes about 1 hour.

You will likely be at the infusion center for longer than that, especially for your first infusion, so set aside extra time so you don’t feel rushed.

Once every 2 weeks icon

How often are infusions given?

Infusions are given once every 2 weeks.

It's a good idea to figure out transportation early so you can make a plan for each infusion appointment.

Tell your healthcare provider or infusion care team right away if you experience any of these symptoms. They can tell you what to do and if medicine may help.

An infusion every 2 weeks is what keeps LEQEMBI working in your body. Plus, it gives your care team more opportunities to check in
on you.
