My Joe gets 1500 mg of Gemzar by slow infusion (2 1/2 hours), but it is based on weight -- he weighs 236 lbs at this point. He has had lower doses when his weight dropped. What is your hubbie's weight? Is it close to Joe's?

I know there is a formula to calculate how much they are supposed to get (based on weight) but I never understood it. Hope this info helps.

Barbara
