Filgrastim Injection Information

The prescription drug filgrastim (Neupogen®) has been approved for several different uses. Specifically, it is used to:
 
  • Prevent infections in people undergoing chemotherapy
  • Prevent infections in people receiving bone marrow transplants
  • Aid in the collection of stem cells for stem cell transplantation
  • Prevent infections and other problems in people with low neutrophils due to certain other causes.
 
Filgrastim is given by injection once a day for a certain period of time. A healthcare provider can administer the shots, or you or a caregiver can do it if you are comfortable with this.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with filgrastim, your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history. This includes any other conditions you have (including allergies) and any other medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
