This medication is given by injection into a vein as directed by your doctor, over 30-60 minutes or longer to avoid lowering of blood pressure, which occurs when etoposide is given too quickly.

If you are giving this medication to yourself at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional.
