How to use: Priming your Movymia® (teriparatide) Pen

Every time you insert a new cartridge you must ‘prime your pen’ before you administer your injection:

The pen must be primed and tested after inserting a new cartridge.

  1. Turn the dose knob clockwise until you see a droplet sign on the dose display. Make sure that the two indicator stripes are aligned. During dose dialling, the pen clicks, and you will feel some resistance.
  2. Hold the pen with the needle pointing upwards. Press the push button fully in and hold it there until the dose indication has returned to the start position.
  3. You should see some drops of medicine appear from the needle tip. If no drops emerge, prime the pen again until they do. If no drops appear after four attempts, try a new cartridge.
Only prime your pen when you insert a new cartridge (at the start of your treatment and every 28 days thereafter)
