Helpful tips for using ADMELOG

ADMELOG gives you the option to dose 15 minutes before a meal or immediately after a meal so you can take the amount you need based on what you ate, not the other way around.

Before you use ADMELOG

Your healthcare provider should teach you how to inject ADMELOG. However, before you use your pen:

  • Read all the information that came with your pen or vial, including the Instructions for Use.
  • Speak with your doctor or healthcare provider if you have questions about your pen or vial, or do not understand the instructions.

Take special note

  • Do not reuse needles.
  • Do not use a syringe to remove medicine from your pen.
  • Do not share your pen with other people, even if the needle has been changed.
  • Check the label on the ADMELOG pen each time you inject to make sure you are using the correct medicine.
  • If you have problems handling the pen or can’t see the numbers in the dose window clearly, have another person help you.

When to inject

ADMELOG should be given within 15 minutes before a meal or immediately after a meal.

Where to inject

You can inject ADMELOG in four areas of your body:

  • Anywhere in your stomach area, except for a two-inch radius around your navel.
  • In the fatty tissue on the outer back area of your upper arm.
  • In your thigh, away from your knee.
  • In your buttocks.

Take special note

Rotate your injection sites with each dose to reduce your risk of getting lipodystrophy (pitted or thickened skin) and localized cutaneous amyloidosis (skin with lumps) at the injection sites. Do not use the same spot for each injection or inject where the skin is pitted, thickened, lumpy, tender, bruised, scaly, hard, scarred or damaged.
