Diagnosis is just the beginning of your growth journey. By now, you’ve probably got plenty of questions about your treatment options. Get started by looking at all your options below and speaking to your doctor about which one may work for you.
Omnitrope is taken via daily injection and there are two administration options available - a liquid-formulation pen, and a vial and syringe.1
The information below should help you to determine which option will best fit your needs. But don’t worry! If you have further questions about administering Omnitrope, your nurse trainer will walk you through each step of the injection process, as well as how to safely store and dispose of used needles.
Injection pens may be a good option if you or your child are uncomfortable around traditional needles
The pen may also be a good choice if you would prefer not to mix your medication at home. The ready-to-use liquid cartridge eliminates the need to reconstitute or mix with a liquid.
*Cartridge must be stored or refrigerated from 36 °F to 46 °F.
If you choose the vial and syringe option, you will need to learn how to safely mix your medication at home. Your nurse trainer will be able to demonstrate this with you during your injection training session.
†Vial must be stored in the refrigerator at 36 °F to 46 °F.
