How should I take VPRIV?

You should have scheduled VPRIV (velaglucerase alfa) appointments once every two weeks. Your doctor or another licensed healthcare professional will prepare a solution of VPRIV - equal to 60 units for each kilogram of your body's weight - and administer the drug with an IV. The drip should be timed to fully infuse over one hour. The doctor should monitor you for side effects or sensitivity while you are receiving VPRIV. You should not hesitate to mention any discomfort or strange feelings, as they could indicate you require specific medical attention.
