Serostim® should be administered using sterile, disposable syringes and needles. Your HCP should talk to you about the importance of proper disposal, and how to obtain an appropriate container for the disposal of used syringes and needles. Needles and syringes should not be reused, and injection sites should be rotated to avoid localized tissue atrophy.
Never share a Serostim® needle with others. Serostim® medication and needles should never be shared with another person, even if the needle is changed. Sharing of treatment supplies may pose a risk of transmission of infection.
When taking Serostim®, you should be informed of the potential benefits and risks associated with treatment. Contact your HCP if you experience any side effects or discomfort during treatment with Serostim®. Your HCP can help counsel you on the management of common side effects.
