Your doctor will have prescribed your Myalepta dose in milligrams and the volume of prepared Myalepta solution to inject in millilitres. This may also have been provided to you on a Dose Information Card. A detailed step-by-step guide on how to prepare and inject your treatment is available in the Instructions for Use in the Package Leaflet. A video is available to download which demonstrates the correct preparation and injection techniques and will help you to correctly administer Myalepta. It is called How to prepare and inject Myalepta correctly.
