Tips to help you manage your FRAGMIN therapy.

  1. Do not inject FRAGMIN into the muscle.
  2. Select a different site on the abdomen or thigh for each injection to help prevent bruises, swelling and pain at the injection site.
  3. Do not use the product if the mixture (solution) shows haziness, particulate matter, discolouration or leakage.
  4. Administer FRAGMIN at the same time each day: Taking your medication on a regular schedule is easier if you link it to something you do each day — such as brushing your teeth or shaving. As a reminder, put a note on the bathroom mirror. You can also use an alarm or cell phone to remind you when to take your medication.
  5. If you miss a dose, tell your health care professional. Do not take two doses at the next dosage time.
  6. Give yourself the injections prescribed for the entire length of time specified by your healthcare professional.
  7. Arrange for privacy: If you do not feel comfortable with people seeing you take your medication, arrange for a time each day when you are able to have some privacy.
  8. If you need refills, think about them ahead of time: Create a reminder in your diary or cell phone to order refills before you need them.
  9. Plan ahead for travelling and weekends: Think ahead about weekends or holidays. You may want to leave backup medication at places where you often go that are out of your daily routine.
