How Should Halaven Be Stored?

Undiluted Halaven is stored at room temperature (not under refrigeration). Your healthcare provider may dilute Halaven before your IV, although this is not necessary. Once diluted or otherwise removed from the original vial, the medication must be used within four hours (at room temperature) or within 24 hours (if refrigerated).

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you fail to receive a dose of Halaven on schedule, contact your healthcare provider to set up an appointment for your next dose right away.
