Getting Started with OCREVUS

Watch patients talk about infusion

OCREVUS is given every 6 months as an IV infusion

  • Your first dose of OCREVUS will be given as 2 separate infusions 2 weeks apart. These will last about 2.5 hours each*
  • Every dose after your first will be given as 1 single infusion 6 months apart, lasting about 3.5 hours*
  • Before each infusion of OCREVUS you will receive corticosteroids and an antihistamine to help reduce infusion-related reactions (IRRs)
  • OCREVUS should be given under the close supervision of an experienced healthcare provider with access to appropriate medical support to manage severe reactions such as serious IRRs

*The length of infusion could be longer if an IRR occurs.

What to expect during the first infusion

With OCREVUS, your doctor or nurse will walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

The location where you’ll receive your infusion will be determined—it may be at your doctor’s office or an infusion center.

There are a few steps to the infusion process:
