What If I Overdose on PROVENGE?

An overdose of this medicine is unlikely, as each dosage is specifically made to contain a specific amount of medication, and is administered by a healthcare provider. However, it is always important to seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have overdosed on this or any other drug.

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you miss your PROVENGE dose, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible. This medication has a short window for use before it expires. If you do not receive your dose before the expiration day and time, you will need to have another procedure to collect your white blood cells, so a new dose can be created for you.

How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

PROVENGE will be stored by your healthcare provider.
