WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU USE SUMAVEL DosePro
When you break the tip, it may feel and sound like the snapping of a carrot. There is a sound when you deliver the medicine that is similar to the opening of a soda can.
Needle free doesn't mean you won't feel anything. Expect to feel something like the snapping of a rubber band against your skin.
You may experience some bleeding, swelling, redness, or bruising at the delivery site. In clinical trials, no one stopped using SUMAVEL DosePro because of side effects.
Checking SUMAVEL DosePro before you start
Here's a quick look at the simple steps involved with SUMAVEL DosePro. This is not intended to take the place of the complete Patient Instructions For Use, which can be found on the last page of the patient information information. Before using SUMAVEL DosePro for the first time, make sure your healthcare provider shows you the correct way to use it.
Check the tip:
Make sure the snap-off tip is firmly attached. Don’t use it if it’s already snapped off or tilted.
Check the medication chamber:
The medicine inside should be colorless or pale yellow. Don’t use it if it’s dark or cloudy.
Check the expiration date:
It's printed on both the SUMAVEL DosePro label and the carton. Do not use SUMAVEL DosePro if the medicine is expired.
Prepare delivery site:
Simply pinch skin and press firmly and in less than a second, your medicine is delivered. Some people may have a very small amount of blood at the delivery site. If so, simply wipe it away. Read the patient information that comes with SUMAVEL DosePro before use.
