Tirzepatide & Semaglutide Injections Instructions

Storage

Keep out of reach of children.
Store your medicine in its original container in the refrigerator. Do not freeze. Do not use if frozen. Discard any unused medication 21 days after removing it from the refrigerator.

Dosing

Refer to your dosing instructions received on your prescription for exact directions on how much to take. Your doctor may increase your dose as needed. Please do not increase your dose without first speaking to your doctor as your body needs time to adjust and build up the medication. 

Proper Use

Check the liquid and do not use if it is cloudy, discolored, or has particles in it. Use a new needle each time you inject your medication. Inject on the same day each week, at any time of the day, with or without meals.

  1. Wash and dry your hands. Remove the cap of the vial if it is the first time using. Clean the top of the vial and injection site with an alcohol swab.
  2. Draw the required amount of air (equal to the dosage for medication required) into the syringe by pulling the plunger down.
  3. Insert the needle into the center of the rubber vial top. With the needle in the bottle, turn it upside down and inject the air into the vial. Withdraw the required amount of medicine into the syringe. Remove any bubbles (if present) by flicking or tapping the syringe with your finger. Remove the needle from the vial.

This medicine is given as a shot under the skin of your stomach, thighs, or upper arm at a 45* or 90* angle. Pinch the skin as you inject. Keep track of where you give each shot to make sure you rotate body areas.

  • Stomach: Inject at least 2 inches away from the belly button.
  • Thigh: Aim for the fleshy outer side of your upper thigh.
  • Upper Arm: Aim for the fleshy outer side, about 3 inches below your shoulder.

Missed Dose

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible within 4 days. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double dose.
