Also question is, when can I stop taking Epogen?
After you have finished your chemotherapy course, Epogen treatment should be stopped.
Likewise, how long is Epogen good for at room temperature? Prefilled syringes containing the 20,000 units/mL formulation with preservative are stable for 6 weeks refrigerated (2°C to 8°C) (Naughton 2003). Dilutions of 1:10 and 1:20 (1 part epoetin alfa:19 parts sodium chloride) are stable for 18 hours at room temperature (Ohls 1996).
Consequently, when should I take epoetin?
Epoetin alfa injection products are used to treat anemia (a lower than normal number of red blood cells) in people with chronic kidney failure (condition in which the kidneys slowly and permanently stop working over a period of time).
