We offer injection support, whether you are injecting yourself or have a caregiver who is assisting you. We have tools and resources to help you feel confident when giving yourself your dose.
Take a look at our self-injection video, and then download our Self-Injection Guide. These will help you get started.
If your doctor decides that you or a caregiver may give your injections at home, you should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject STELARA®. Do not try to inject yourself until you or your caregiver has been properly trained by a healthcare provider. Please read the Instructions for Use and Medication Guide before injecting STELARA®.
Nurse Support Is Available
After you’ve been trained to give yourself an injection by a healthcare provider, you may still have more questions. Did you know Janssen CarePath provides access to live nurses? You can ask them questions about:
- Giving yourself an injection at home with STELARA®
- Your prefilled syringe
- Preparing your injection site prior to self-injecting
- Properly disposing of your used syringe
- Safety information about STELARA®
