How to inject Fyremadel® using the pre-filled syringes2
Fyremadel® is supplied in pre-filled syringes that contain one daily dose. You should only use a Fyremadel® pre-filled syringe once, after which it should be disposed of by placing into a sharps container.
The contents of the pre-filled syringe should be injected slowly, just under the skin (subcutaneous), preferably in the upper leg.
Each time you inject yourself, it is recommended that you select a different injection site to the previous site used. For detailed injection technique in all eligible body sites, you are advised to contact the prescribing physician.
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
Swab the injection site with a disinfectant (for example alcohol) to remove any surface bacteria.
Clean about 5cm (two inches) around the point where the needle will go in and let the disinfectant dry for at least one minute before proceeding.
Inspect the solution before use. Do not use if the solution contains particles or is not clear. Do not mix Fyremadel® with any other medicines.
Remove the needle cover
Pinch a large area of skin between finger and thumb
Insert the needle at the base of the pinched-up skin at an angle of 45° to the skin’s surface.
To check the needle is in the correct position, gently draw back the plunger. If any blood appears, the needle tip has penetrated a blood vessel.
If this happens, do not continue with the injection of Fyremadel®. Remove the syringe, cover the injection site with a swab containing disinfectant and apply pressure; bleeding should stop in a minute or two.
You must also dispose of the syringe and start again with a new one.
Once the needle is correctly positioned, depress the plunger slowly and steadily, so the solution is correctly injected.
Pull the syringe out quickly and apply pressure to the site with a disinfectant swab.
