Read the Instructions for Use each time you self-administer an injection.
Failure to follow instructions closely may result in injecting either too much or too little insulin, which in turn could adversely affect your blood sugar level.1
This information does not take the place of talking to your doctor about your medical condition or your treatment. Your healthcare provider should show you and/or a caregiver the correct way of using the SEMGLEE pen before you use it for the first time.1
Your healthcare professional has decided that SEMGLEE is right for you. Talk with your healthcare professional about proper injection technique before using SEMGLEE.
Read these instructions carefully before using your SEMGLEE. If you are not able to follow all the instructions completely on your own, use SEMGLEE only if you have help from a person who is able to follow the instructions.
People who are blind or have vision problems should not use SEMGLEE single-patient use prefilled pen without help from a person trained to use SEMGLEE single-patient-use prefilled pen.
Follow these instructions completely each time you use SEMGLEE to ensure that you get an accurate dose. If you do not follow these instructions you may get too much or too little insulin, which may affect your blood glucose.
SEMGLEE is a disposable pen for the injection of insulin. Each SEMGLEE contains in total 300 units of insulin. You can set doses from 1 to 80 units in steps of 1 unit. The pen plunger moves with each dose. The plunger will only move to the end of the cartridge when 300 units of insulin have been given.
If you have any questions about SEMGLEE, ask your healthcare professional, or call VIATRIS at 1-877-446-3679 (1-877-4-INFO-RX).
