Administration Information

Ocrevus is an intravenous infusion that is given every 6 months. Your first dose will be split into 2 infusions, 2 weeks apart. Your appointment may take 4-6 hours due to premedication before your infusion, as well as 1 hour of monitoring post infusion. Every dose after your first will be given as one single infusion six months apart, each lasting 2-4 hours. If you haven’t had any serious infusion reactions with previous Ocrevus infusions, a shorter infusion option is available.
