Semaglutide Administration Guide
Semaglutide is a medication that is usually injected under the skin (subcutaneously) once a week, either with or without food. When using semaglutide, it is important to choose a day of the week that works best for you and stick to that day each week. Before preparing the injection, it is important to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Additionally, inspect the semaglutide pen for any visible signs of damage or particles, and do not use the pen if you notice any issues.
After preparing the injection, remove the cap from the pen and wipe the injection site with an alcohol swab. Allow the skin to dry before inserting the needle at a 90-degree angle and pressing the injection button to administer the medication. It is recommended to hold the needle in place for 5-10 seconds before removing it from the skin.
Once the injection is complete, dispose of the needle and pen in a sharps container. It is also important to monitor your blood sugar levels as recommended by your healthcare provider. To ensure safe and effective use of semaglutide, it is crucial to follow the instructions and guidelines of our health care experts.

How Should Semaglutide be Stored?
To ensure the safe and effective use of semaglutide, it is important to follow proper storage guidelines.
Keep the unopened pens in a refrigerator at a temperature range of 2 to 8 degrees Celsius (36 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit), away from direct light and heat. Avoid freezing the pen, and discard it if it has been frozen.
After the first use, the pen can be stored at room temperature (between 15 to 30 degrees Celsius or 59 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit) or in the refrigerator for up to 56 days. Remember to throw away the pen after 56 days or once it has reached the expiration date, whichever comes first. To prevent medication leakage, do not store the pen with the needle attached after use. It is important to keep the pen out of reach of children and pets to avoid any accidental exposure.
