How is Mycamine given?

Mycamine is usually given once daily for up to several weeks. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
Mycamine is injected into a vein through an IV. You may be shown how to use an IV at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles, IV tubing, and other items used to inject the medicine.
Do not shake the medication bottle or you may ruin the medicine. Prepare your dose only when you are ready to give an injection. Do not use if the medicine has changed colors or has particles in it. Call your pharmacist for new medicine.
