For your one-time IV infusion through a needle placed in a vein, your healthcare professional will provide the amount of medication based on your body weight in a relaxed, comfortable setting. The infusion lasts at least one hour, so before you’re done texting, tweeting, and planning a hangout with your friends, you’ll be finished and on your way home.
All Crohn’s disease biologics need to be injected or infused, and STELARA® provides a convenient dosing schedule of one subcutaneous injection every 8 weeks after your initial one-time intravenous (IV) infusion. If your doctor decides that you can give your injections at home, you should receive training on the proper way to prepare and inject STELARA®. Do not try to inject until you have been properly trained by a healthcare professional.
With a little training, a little practice, and a little confidence, injecting STELARA® at home will become part of your routine.
The following video will provide an overview of self-injecting. Also be sure to download our Self-Injection Guide to have all of the information you need right at your fingertips, and thoroughly read the Medication Guide prior to injecting.
