When prescribed a new medication, it’s important that you get the clarity you needHere are some questions you may want to ask your physician or pharmacist prior to starting treatment: 

  • Do I take the biosimilar the same way as my current biologic 

  • Can I get the biosimilar from the same pharmacy?  

  • If I take the biosimilar by infusion, can I go to the same infusion clinic? 

  • If I administer the biosimilar myself, is there anything new I need to know or do? How should I store it? And will everything I need be delivered to me? 

  • Will my dosing schedule be the same as my current biologic?  

  • Will I have to switch to a different patient support program?
