This medication is given by injection into a vein by a health care professional. Fosaprepitant is usually given as a single dose 30 minutes before your chemotherapy or as directed by your doctor. On the following 2 days, you will usually take the form of this medication given by mouth (aprepitant). If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
