Can I self-administer XEMBIFY?
Most patients or caregivers can be trained to infuse. However, self-administration should be done only after you go through self-infusion training with a healthcare professional. Your specialty pharmacy will provide nurse support to train you to infuse.
You can always ask your healthcare provider questions about self-administration, especially if you need a refresher or if your infusion schedule has recently changed. Learn more about how to infuse XEMBIFY.
After I am trained on self-administration, will I still need to visit my healthcare provider?
Yes. It's important to work with your healthcare provider when receiving SCIG therapy. Regular healthcare provider visits are an important part of getting the most out of treatment. At each visit, your healthcare provider will review your treatment regimen, evaluate your response to treatment, and address any concerns you may have. It's important to bring your Infusion Log Book with you when you visit your healthcare provider.
What equipment do I need to start self-infusing XEMBIFY?
Your specialty pharmacy will provide your supplies for infusing XEMBIFY including an infusion pump, needle set(s), and tubing. Both your specialty pharmacy nurse and healthcare provider can explain how to use your supplies (including needle size) and infuse XEMBIFY, along with other equipment choices.
You can also access the infusion-related resources included in the XEMBIFY Patient Starter Kit. Learn more about infusion resources.
How many infusion sites should be used?
XEMBIFY may be infused in up to 6 infusion sites. Patients choose the number of infusion sites from 1 to 6 with guidance from their healthcare provider (most patients used 4, although fewer may also be used).
