Preparing a Sogroya® pen

Pen shown is 10 mg/1.5 mL pen. Please see Instructions for Use for complete instructions for each dosage strength.

1. Prepare your Sogroya® pen

  • Wash your hands with soap and water. Then check the name, strength, and colored label on your pen to make sure that it contains Sogroya® in the right strength.
  • Pull off the pen cap. Turn the pen upside down 1 or 2 times to check that the Sogroya® in your pen is clear to almost clear and colorless to slightly yellow.
    If Sogroya® looks cloudy or you see visible particles, do not use the pen.
  • Get a new disposable needle and remove the paper tab.c Push the needle straight onto the pen and turn the needle clockwise until it is on tight.
    Always use a new needle for each injection. This reduces the risk of contamination, infection, leakage of Sogroya® and blocked needles leading to incorrect dosing.
  • Pull off the outer needle cap and throw it away. Pull off the inner needle cap and throw it away too.

cNeedles are sold separately and may require a prescription.

Checking the flow of a Sogroya® pen

Pen shown is 10 mg/1.5 mL pen. Please see Instructions for Use for complete instructions for each dosage strength.

2. Check the flow with each new pen

  • Before using a new pen, check the flow to make sure Sogroya® can flow through the pen and needle.
  • Turn the dose selector clockwise one tick mark to select the smallest amount of medicine for the pen.
  • Hold the pen with the needle pointing up. Press and hold in the dose button until the dose counter returns to “0.” The “0” must line up with the dose pointer.
  • Check that a drop of Sogroya® appears at the needle tip. If no Sogroya® appears, repeat up to 6 times. If you still don’t see a drop of Sogroya®, replace the needle once and try again.
    Do not use your pen if a drop of Sogroya® does not appear after changing the needle. Call 1-888-NOVO-444 (1-888-668-6444) for help.

Pen shown is 10 mg/1.5 mL pen. Please see Instructions for Use for complete instructions for each dosage strength.

3. Select your dose

  • Check that the dose counter is set to “0.”
  • Turn the dose selector clockwise to select the dose you need. Always use the dose pointer to select the exact dose. Do not rely on pen clicks.
  • If you select the wrong dose, you can turn the dose selector clockwise or counterclockwise to reach the correct dose.
  • If there is not enough Sogroya® left in the pen to select your full dose, you can either dispose of it (see step 5) and start over with a new pen or split your dose between your current pen and a new pen. To split your dose, inject the amount left in your current pen. Calculate how much Sogroya® you need to complete your dose, then perform steps 1 through 3 to prepare a new pen and select that amount.
    Only split your dose if you have been trained or advised by your healthcare provider on how to do this.
Injecting the Sogroya® pen

    Make sure you can see the dose counter. Do not cover it with your fingers, as it could block the injection.
  • Press and hold down the dose button until the dose counter shows “0.” You may hear or feel a “click.”
  • Keep holding down the button with the needle in your skin and slowly count to 6.
