What should I know about galsulfase before receiving it?

When you receive galsulfase, you may be listed on a patient registry in order to help track your progress. Also, this medication is not a cure for Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome. It is only a temporary treatment. If you have a fever, a cold, the flu or suffer from sleep apnea, your doctor may still prescribe this medication but suggest an adjustment in dosage. If you are allergic to galsulfase or mouse proteins, do not take this medication. You may have a reaction to this medication, which could include: rashes, itching, stomach trouble, nausea, vomiting, headaches, fever, chills, chest pain, trouble breathing or lightheadedness. If any of these reactions occur, inform your doctor immediately.
