Simponi delivered straight to your door
After your doctor has prescribed Simponi, they will sign you up for the Healthcare at Home delivery service if it is appropriate for you. An advisor will phone to organise your delivery, for a time and place that suits you, free of charge.
We can offer advice on any queries you might have, such as:
Front of the middle thigh
Lower abdomen, at least two inches below the belly button
Outer area of the upper arm (if you are not administering the injection yourself)
You should avoid injecting into the same place twice in a row. This is especially important if you need more than one injection for each monthly dose.
It may help to note down which area you use each time (e.g. right side of lower abdomen) to help make sure you use a different area the next time you inject. This is especially important if more than one injection is needed for each dose.
The SmartJect pen has been designed in collaboration with patients and nurses so that taking your treatment is as easy as possible:
Simponi is also available in a prefilled, 50mg disposable syringe
You should store Simponi in the fridge, between
2°C and 8°C
and keep it in its outer carton to protect it from light
Take your Simponi out of the fridge but keep it in its outer carton
You need to wait
for it to reach room temperature before you can inject
