How to use: Administering every day

Administering your treatment

  1. Choose either the abdomen or thigh as the injection site and disinfect the skin in that area using an alcohol wipe. Leave the skin to dry. Then gently hold a skin fold between your thumb and index finger. Insert the needle straight and gently into the skin
    Be careful not to tilt the pen after inserting the needle as this can cause the needle to bend and break in the skin. If this happens, consult a doctor immediately.
  2. Press the push button fully in and hold it there until the dose indication has returned to the start position. Keep the needle in the skin fold for a further 6 seconds. Then pull the pen out slowly.
  3. Check if the display is at the start position to make sure that the full dose has been injected.
  4. Place the cap back on the needle and twist to remove then dispose of the needle safely in the sharps bin that has been provided. Reattach the Movymia® (teriparatide) pen cap and store in the refrigerator.
  5. Finally, make a note in Your Movymia® (teriparatide) Treatment Diary that you have taken your injection today.
