How XGEVA® Is Given

XGEVA® is a shot given by your doctor. It is different from your cancer treatment.1

XGEVA® is a shot given once every 4 weeks. It is given under the skin. It does not go into the veins.1

  • XGEVA® can be injected into your upper arm, upper thigh, or stomach area1
  • Your doctor will test your blood calcium levels before you start XGEVA®. You cannot start XGEVA® if you have low blood calcium. XGEVA® can cause low blood calcium levels which can be life threatening, so be sure to take calcium and vitamin D as directed by your doctor
  • It is important to follow the recommended treatment schedule for XGEVA®
  • Talk to your doctor about scheduling appointments, for once every 4 weeks, in advance
