    • Alcohol wipe (not supplied)

    • A place to record your injections, like the downloadable Rotation Planner, the Mylan Smart Injection Tracker app for your smartphone on the App StoreSM or Google Play, or a notebook.
    • Sharps disposal container (not supplied) or needle clipper (from your Welcome Pack)
  • Remove one blister pack from the Glatiramer Acetate Injection pre-filled syringe carton.
    • Keep all unused syringes in the carton and store them in the refrigerator.
    • Place the supplies you will need on a clean, flat surface in a well-lit area.
    • Let the blister pack with the syringe inside warm up to room temperature for about 20 minutes.
    • Wash your hands. Be careful not to touch your face or hair after washing your hands.
  • Look closely at your Glatiramer Acetate Injection pre-filled syringe.
    • There may be small air bubbles in the syringe. Do not try to push the air bubbles from the syringe before giving your injection so you do not lose any medicine.
    • Check the liquid medicine in the syringe before you give your injection. It should look clear and colorless or slightly yellow. If it is cloudy or contains any particles, do not use the syringe. Throw it away in a sharps disposal container.
  • Choose your injection area. Talk with your doctor about the injection areas that are best for you.
    • The possible injection areas on your body include:

      *Avoid 2” around belly button

    • For each dose, pick a different injection area from one of the areas listed above.
    • Do not stick the needle in the same place (site) more than once a week. Each injection area contains multiple injection sites for you to choose from. Avoid injecting in the same site over and over again.
    • Keep a record of your injection sites, so you know where you have injected.1 Use the downloadable Rotation Planner, the Mylan Smart Injection Tracker app for your smartphone on the App StoreSM or Google Play, or a notebook.
  • Prepare to give your injection.
    • There are some injection areas on your body that are hard to reach (like the back of your arm). You may need help from someone who has been instructed on how to give your injection in these areas.
    • Do not inject in sites where the skin has scarring or “dents,” because it may make your skin worse.
  • Clean the injection site using the alcohol wipe and allow your skin to air-dry.

Using the WhisperJECT Autoinjector

Using the Pre-filled Syringe

  • Remove the Syringe from its protective blister pack by peeling back the paper label.
  • Choose an injection site on your body. Clean the injection site with a new alcohol wipe and let the site air-dry.
  • Pick up the Syringe with one hand and hold it like a pencil. Remove the Needle Cap with your other hand.
  • Pinch about a 2-inch fold of skin between your thumb and index finger.
  • Rest the heel of your hand holding the syringe against your skin at the injection site. Insert the needle at a 90-degree angle straight into your skin. When the needle is all the way in, release the fold of skin.
  • To inject the medicine, hold the Syringe steady and slowly push down on the Plunger.
  • When you have injected all of the medicine, pull the needle straight out.
  • Press a dry cotton ball on the injection site for a few seconds. Do not rub the injection site or re-use the Needle or Syringe.

Disposal, Storage & Travel

Disposing of the Syringe

  • Put your used needles and syringes in an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not dispose of loose needles and syringes in your household trash.
  • If you do not have an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that:
    • Is made of heavy-duty plastic
    • Can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid
    • Is upright and stable during use
    • Is leak-resistant
    • Is properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside
  • When your sharps container is almost full, follow your community guidelines and dispose of the container properly. For more information about regulations, visit the FDA website
  • Do not dispose of your used sharps container in your household trash unless your community guidelines permit this. Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container.
  • You can also clip the needle with the Needle Clipper provided in your Welcome Pack from Mylan MS Advocate. This Needle Clipper stores up to 1,500 needles; dispose of it, following local regulations, when it is full.1
  • Your WhisperJECT device should be replaced after two years. Please contact Mylan MS Advocate to receive a replacement device within two years of your date of receipt.

Storing Mylan’s Glatiramer Acetate Injection

  • Keep the carton of Pre-filled Syringes in the refrigerator at 36-46°F (2-8°C). Keep Glatiramer Acetate Injection out of the reach of children.
  • When you are not able to refrigerate Glatiramer Acetate Injection, you may store it for up to 1 month at room temperature (59-86°F or 15-30°C).
  • Protect Glatiramer Acetate Injection from light and high temperatures.
  • Do not freeze Glatiramer Acetate Injection. If a syringe freezes, throw it away in a sharps disposal container.

Tips for Traveling with Mylan’s Glatiramer Acetate Injection

Mylan's Glatiramer Acetate Injection can travel with you. The WhisperJECT Autoinjector device even comes in its own sturdy traveling case.

While refrigeration is preferred, Mylan's Glatiramer Acetate Injection may be kept at room temperature (59-86°F or 15-30°C) for up to 1 month during travel or special circumstances when refrigeration may not be available.

Make sure to bring enough supplies with you. Pack more syringes than you need, in case of emergencies or a change in plans. And be sure to pack enough cotton balls and alcohol wipes for the number of days you’ll be away.2 You might also want to use tight-locking plastic storage bags to make sure all your supplies are sealed properly.3

If you’re traveling by plane, keep your syringes and WhisperJECT Autoinjector device in your carry-on luggage, so they’re easily available during inspection4 and to maintain appropriate temperature storage ranges.

Before you leave home, check current regulations on traveling with prescription medications at the Transportation Security Administration website at tsa.gov

INDICATION

GLATIRAMER ACETATE INJECTION is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Do not take GLATIRAMER ACETATE INJECTION if you are allergic to glatiramer acetate or mannitol.

Some patients report a short-term reaction right after injecting glatiramer acetate.  This reaction can involve flushing (feeling of warmth and/or redness), chest tightness or pain with heart palpitations, anxiety, and trouble breathing. These symptoms generally appear within minutes of an injection, last about 15 minutes, and do not require specific treatment.  There have been reports of patients with similar symptoms who received emergency medical care. If symptoms become severe, call the emergency phone numbers in your area.

Call your doctor right away if you develop hives, skin rash with irritation, dizziness, sweating, chest pain, trouble breathing, or severe pain at the injection site. If any of the above occurs, do not give yourself any more injections until your doctor tells you to begin again.

Chest pain may occur either as part of the immediate post-injection reaction or on its own. This pain should only last a few minutes. You may experience more than one such episode, usually beginning at least one month after starting treatment.

A permanent indentation under the skin (lipoatrophy and, rarely, death of your skin tissue also referred to as necrosis) at the injection site may occur due to local destruction of fat tissue. Be sure to follow proper injection technique and inform your doctor of any skin changes.

The most common side effects in studies of glatiramer acetate are redness, pain, swelling, itching, or a lump at the site of injection, flushing, rash, shortness of breath, and chest pain. These are not all of the possible side effects of GLATIRAMER ACETATE INJECTION. For a complete list, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Tell your doctor about any side effects that you have while taking GLATIRAMER ACETATE INJECTION.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
