You’ll likely get a call from your infusion center a few days before your appointment to gather some extra information. That’s a good time to ask about anything you need to bring, such as paperwork and medication lists. Be sure to save the infusion center in your contacts so you can reach them easily and know when a call is coming from them.

What can I expect during an infusion?

The exact process may vary, but a LEQEMBI infusion often includes these steps:

Infusion‐

reactions

If you have an infusion-related reaction, your healthcare provider may:

  • Adjust the flow or stop the infusion
  • Give you medicines before your future LEQEMBI infusions to decrease your chance of having an infusion-related reaction. These medicines may include antihistamines,
    anti-inflammatory medicines, or steroids

How can I stay on track and monitor my progress?

In people with Alzheimer’s disease, amyloid brain plaque continuously builds up. LEQEMBI keeps working throughout treatment to remove harmful amyloid brain plaque. That's why it's important to stick with your treatment plan.

Even though you cannot feel LEQEMBI working day to day, staying on track with each infusion helps treat Alzheimer's disease.

Your healthcare provider will monitor you for side effects throughout treatment and may adjust your dose or stop treatment, if necessary.
