Crohn’s Disease Injection Support | STELARA® (ustekinumab)

Feeling Right at Home With STELARA®

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.



Safely and securely disposing of your used STELARA® prefilled syringes is easy. SafeReturns® is a convenient return service that provides mailback boxes at no additional cost to you. To receive your SafeReturns® boxes, please call Janssen CarePath at 877-CarePath (877-227-3728).
