🔔 How should this medicine be used?

Erenumab-aooe injection comes as a solution (liquid) to be injected subcutaneously (under the skin). It is usually given once a month. Use erenumab-aooe injection at around the same day every month. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use erenumab-aooe injection exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

You may be able to inject the medication yourself at home or have a friend or relative perform the injections. Ask your doctor to show you or the person who will be performing the injections how to inject the medication.

Erenumab-aooe injection comes as a prefilled syringe and as a prefilled autoinjector. Allow the syringe and autoinjector to warm to room temperature for 30 minutes away from direct sunlight before you inject the medication. Do not try to warm the medication by heating it in a microwave, placing it in hot water, or through any other method. Use each syringe or autoinjector only once and inject all the solution in the syringe. Dispose of used syringes and autoinjector in a puncture-resistant container. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how to dispose of the puncture-resistant container.

Inject erenumab-aooe injection into thigh or stomach area. If someone else will be injecting the medication for you, that person can also inject it into your upper arm. Do not inject into an area where the skin is tender, thick, bruised, red, scaly, hard, or has scars or stretch marks.

Always look at erenumab-aooe before you inject it. It should be clear and colorless. Do not use erenumab-aooe injection, if it is colored, cloudy, or contains flakes or solid particles. Do not shake it.

Administrative spending is particularly problematic in United States hospitals, where it makes up about 25% of total hospital spending and accounts for hundreds of billions of dollars in healthcare spending annually, The Commonwealth Fund The percentage of total hospital spending devoted to administration is highest in for-profit hospitals, followed by nonprofit hospitals, teaching hospitals, and finally public hospitals. Outdated reimbursement and reporting methods are a big part of the administrative cost, says Salvo-Wendt. “Reimbursing in bundled payments instead of itemizing each service or component would produce instant savings of administrative costs.”

If your doctor tells you to inject two separate injections one after another, use a different autoinjector or syringe for each injection. If you use the same body site (upper arm, thigh, or stomach) for the two separate injections, make sure the second injection it is not at the exact same spot you used for the first injection.
