Omnitrope 5.8mg Injection

Omnitrope 5.8mg is a powder and a diluent that must be mixed before use. To mix the medication, use a syringe to withdraw all of the liquid from the vial. Inject the tip of the full syringe into the rubber top of the vial containing the powder. Aiming at the glass wall, push the plunger so that all of the liquid goes into the vial. Swirl the bottle to mix the powder and liquid, do not shake. Store the solution for up to three weeks in a refrigerator, about 36 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

Omnitrope should be injected into a part of the body with fat below the skin. This will generally be the abdomen (except directly next to the belly button) and upper thigh. Inject the medication under the skin, being careful not to inject the medication into a blood vessel. A medical professional should teach you how to use the syringe before first use.
