What If I Take an Overdose?

An overdose of Lucentis is unlikely, since it is injected by your healthcare provider and an entire vial contains just one dose.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not receive a Lucentis injection as scheduled, contact your healthcare provider as soon as is possible and convenient. The medication works best if it is taken on a monthly basis, and missing doses may decrease its effectiveness.
