Dosing and Administration Video

Firmagon is a deep subcutaneous injection administered to the abdominal region. It should be administered at a slow and steady pace over 30 seconds.

Injection sites should be varied and not be in areas where the patient will be exposed to pressure e.g. not close to waistband/ belt. Treatment should be continued after initiation and it should only be administered by a healthcare professional.

The injection site should be kept clean and patients should avoid rubbing the area. If your patient experiences a reaction at the injection site, it can be managed with paracetamol or ibuprofen or cooling methods e.g. ice packs.
Please watch this video for more information and guidance.
