Helpful tips for using SOLIQUA 100/33

Before you use SOLIQUA 100/33

Your healthcare provider should teach you how to inject SOLIQUA 100/33. However, before you use your pen:

  • Read all the information that came with your pen, including the Instructions for Use.
  • Speak with your doctor or healthcare provider if you have questions about your pen or do not understand the instructions.
  • Know your dose and don't change your dose unless directed by your doctor.

Take special note

  • Do not re-use 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 SOLIQUA 100/33 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 prepare and inject your dose.

When dialing your dose

  • Do not dial your dose by counting the clicks or you may dial the wrong dose.
  • Always check the number in the dose window to make sure you dial the correct dose.
  • As you dial your dose, you may notice that the dose window is black between 2 units and 15 units. This is because SOLIQUA 100/33 should not be used for a dose of less than 15 units.

When to inject

  • You should inject your dose once a day within one hour before your first meal of the day.
  • If you miss a dose, skip the dose and continue as prescribed on the next day. You should never administer two doses on the same day or increase the dose to make up a missed dose.

Choosing a place to inject

You can inject SOLIQUA 100/33 in three 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

Take special note

  • Always rotate the injection sites within the area you have selected. DO NOT use the same exact spot for each injection.
