How should I use this drug?TOP

The implants will be inserted under the skin in your upper arm by a specially trained physician in a hospital or clinic setting. Follow your doctor's instructions for care of the area where the implants were inserted. Apply an ice pack to your arm for 40 minutes every 2 hours for the first 24 hours after insertion of the implants and as needed. Removal of the implants will also be done in a hospital or clinic setting by a specially trained physician. Do not try to remove the implants yourself. This could lead to infection or you could experience withdrawal symptoms. Your doctor will decide how long the implants will stay in your arm.

Your healthcare provider will give you a Patient Identification Card to carry with you. Keep track of the date the implants are to be removed. Schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider to remove the implants on or before the removal date.

A special MedGuide will be given to you by your healthcare provider each time this medicine is inserted into your arm. Be sure to read this information carefully each time.
