To minimize foaming, do not shake the vial or the prepared IV bag. Reslizumab is for IV infusion only and cannot be administered via bolus or IV push. The infusion must be prepared by a health care professional using aseptic technique and administered in a health care facility by a professional capable of managing anaphylaxis.

Dosing of reslizumab is based on patient weight at 3 mg/kg once every four weeks via IV infusion over 20–50 minutes. The infusion period is dependent on the total volume to be infused and patient weight. The volume corresponding to the appropriate weight-based dose is withdrawn in a syringe and then must be injected slowly into a 50-mL bag of 0.9% sodium chloride. Polyvinylchloride and polyolefin bags are compatible with reslizumab. The remaining unused reslizumab in the vial must be discarded.
