PATIENT INFORMATION

Patients and/or their parents should be instructed in the safe administration of INCRELEX®. INCRELEX® should be given shortly before or after (20 minutes on either side of) a meal or snack. INCRELEX® should not be administered when the meal or snack is omitted. The dose of INCRELEX® should never be increased to make up for one or more omitted doses. INCRELEX® therapy should be initiated at a low dose and the dose should be increased only if no hypoglycemia episodes have occurred after at least 7 days of dosing. If severe hypoglycemia or persistent hypoglycemia occurs on treatment despite adequate food intake, INCRELEX® dose reduction should be considered. Providers should educate patients and caregivers on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia.

INCRELEX® treatment may need to be discontinued if allergic reactions occur. Providers should educate patients and caregivers on the identification of signs and symptoms of serious allergic reactions to INCRELEX® and the need to seek prompt medical contact should such a reaction occur.

Patients and/or parents should be thoroughly instructed in the importance of proper needle disposal. A puncture-resistant container should be used for the disposal of used needles and/or syringes (consistent with applicable state requirements). Needles and syringes must not be reused.
