I thought it was the same thing, i.e. Neulasta is a brand name for a form of GCSF.
Did the job for me. I had an injection done by the district nurse the day following each FEC-T chemo session - was standard protocol at the time at the hospital where I was treated. i.e. one injecton every 3 weeks. My bloods were fine and my chemo sessions all went ahead as scheduled.
Hi, I had the g-csf. One injection every day for 7 days. It didn't bother me too much as I had been on Methotrexate injections for RA previous to chemo. The bone pain was a b****r though. My onco gave me Ibuprofen for that though. If you were given Neulasta the first time you will most likely be given those every cycles.
I have some references to people having g-csf injections to help reduce neutropenia. Is it the same thing, just a different brand name as Neulasta and is it administered the same way?
if it is the not same thing does anyone know why one would be chosen over the other?
I had a 6mg injection of neulasta the day after my second FEC and will get the same in future cycles.
