The needle cartridge. A needle cartridge for injection is provided with each Growth Hormone delivery device. For assistance, call your hormone specialist at the Anti-Aging Group Hormone Therapy Clinic at (866) 812-7641
The two-chamber cartridge of GENOTROPIN contains the growth hormone powder in one chamber and a liquid in the other. When you turn the plunger rod clockwise (to the right), the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK automatically mixes the growth hormone powder and the liquid.
There are no preservatives in the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK. Use each GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK only once and then throw it away.
To help prevent infection, always wash your hands well with soap and water before using the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK and use an alcohol swab to clean the injection site before and after injecting the growth hormone.
|Wipe the rubber stopper on the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK with a pad or swab moistened with rubbing alcohol.|
|Peel the paper covering from the back of the injection needle cartridge. Leave both protective caps (inner and outer) on the needle. Screw the needle cartridge onto the head of GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK, turning it until it stops. Visually check to ensure the needle cartridge has been threaded on straight.|
|Hold the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK with the needle pointing up. Turn the plunger rod clockwise (to the right) until it will go no further to mix the growth hormone powder with the liquid.|
|Do not shake the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK. Shaking may inactivate the growth hormone so it will not work. Check to make sure the solution is clear, indicating that the growth hormone powder is completely dissolved. If you see particles, or if the solution is discolored, do not inject it. Instead, call your hormone specialist at the Anti-Aging Group Hormone Therapy Clinic at (866) 812-7641If the optional Needle Guard is not being used, go to step 6.
(If using the optional, reusable Needle Guard to hide the needle, go to step 5.)
|To attach the optional reusable Needle Guard, remove the outer protective cap from the needle, place the Needle Guard onto the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK, and press gently until the Needle Guard snaps into place. When you are ready to inject, remove the inner protective cap from the needle.|
|Select and disinfect an appropriate injection site with an alcohol swab or as instructed by your health care provider.Carefully remove both the outer and inner protective caps from the needle leaving the needle exposed. Prepare to inject by holding the MiniQuick firmly by the ‘neck’.|
|Pinch a fold of skin at the injection site firmly, and push the needle straight into the skin fold at a 90-degree angle.
(When using the optional Needle Guard, the retractable plastic needle shield will push back and retract as the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK is pushed against the skin.)
|Injecting: Push the plunger rod in as far as it will go and inject all the growth hormone medicine in the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK. Use a smooth, steady pressure on the plunger and wait a few seconds after injecting to be sure that all the growth hormone has been injected. Then, pull out the needle. Wipe the injection site with an alcohol swab.|
|After injection, carefully replace the outer protective cap on the needle if you are not using the optional Needle Guard.
If you are using the Needle Guard, carefully replace the inner protective cap on the needle while the Needle Guard is on the unit. Then remove the Needle Guard and save it for future use. Throw away the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK in a suitable container.
Always throw away the GENOTROPIN MINIQUICK properly, as instructed by your health care provider.
The reusable Needle Guard may be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth or alcohol swab. If it cannot be cleaned satisfactorily, or does not function properly, throw it away and contact Pharmacia & Upjohn for a replacement.
