This medication is typically administered by your physician or another health care professional. If you or another are required to perform your own injection, be sure you are instructed in the correct procedure to prevent any problems. Observe the medication before using it to be sure it is not cloudy, discolored, or has suspended particles as this could indicate contamination. Mix the provided solution and the medication at the proportion directed by your physician and disinfect the area of application. Inject the medicine directly into the muscle slowly to allow it to dissipate. Always use the mixture immediately after it is recombined as delayed use can destroy the contents or alter its effects. You should also clean the used needle after each use to prevent contamination.
