Yes, you should take Rasuvo on the same day each week.
Some RA drugs, including Rasuvo, can cause organ damage. That’s why you’ll have to undergo routine lab tests so your doctor can monitor your liver and kidney functions. These tests are performed as often as your doctor thinks best, usually every several weeks.
