INJECTION SITE CARE

Choose an injection site and clean the skin.

Wash your hands thoroughly.

Choose an injection site on your body. A fatty area, such as your abdomen
(except the area around the navel) or thighs are best.

  • Use a different injection site every time: When choosing an injection site, select an area that has not recently been used to avoid soreness and bruises.
  • Avoid skin that is sore, bruised, scarred, scaly, or has red patches.
  • Clean the injection site with an alcohol pad, and let it dry.
  • Do not touch the area again before the injection.

PEN INJECTION INSTRUCTIONS

Before you inject, ask your doctor or nurse to show you how to use your pre-filled pen.

Quick Use Guide

This quick use guide is a shortened version of the patient information leaflet. These instructions are supplied as a guide only.

Please read the full patient information leaflet before you use your pen for the first time.1

1 WASH HANDS & GATHER SUPPLlES

  • Wash your hands, and place the pen and
    alcohol pad for disinfection on a clean,
    dry surface

2 BRING MEDICATION TO ROOM TEMPERATURE

  • Wait 15-30 minutes for your pen to reach
    room temperature, which helps reduce your
    pain during injection.

3 INSPECT MEDICINE & EXPIRATION DATE

  • If your medication is not clear, not
    free of particles, or is expired, do
    not use it.
  • You may see 1 or more bubbles,
    and that is okay. There is no reason
    to remove it.
  • No Particles
  • Clear
  • Colourless
  • Not Expired

4 CHOOSE INJECTION SITE & CLEAN SKIN

  • Wash your hands again thoroughly.
  • Choose an injection site on your body. A fatty area,
    such as your abdomen (except the area around the
    navel) or thighs are best.
  • Avoid skin that is sore, bruised, scarred, scaly, or has
    red patches.
  • Clean the injection site with alcohol pad, and let it dry.
  • Do not touch the area again before the injection.

5 CAREFULLY PULL OFF THE CLEAR NEEDLE CAP

  • It is normal to see a few drops of liquid come out of
    the needle.
  • If you do take off the cap before you are ready
    to inject, do not put the needle cap back on.
    This could bend or damage the needle. You might
    accidentally stick yourself or waste medication.

6 PLACE GREEN BASE ON SKIN, PUSH THE
ENTIRE PRE-FILLED PEN DOWN FIRMLY,
AND HOLD

  • When you push down, the injection
    starts. You may hear a 1st click.

7 CONTINUE TO HOLD

  • Hold the pen firmly in place against your skin until
    the yellow indicator fills the medication window and
    stops moving.
  • Several seconds later you may hear a 2nd click.

8 CONFIRM COMPLETION & DISPOSE
AS DIRECTED

  • You received your dose if…
    • The entire medication window is yellow
    • No medicine leaked out (a small drop is okay)
  • Throw away the used pen in a special container as
    instructed by your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. If
    you are not sure you received the dose, contact your
    doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
