If your doctor decided that you or a caregiver can give you injections of STELARA® at home, you should receive training on the proper way to prepare and inject STELARA®.
Be sure to read the Medication Guide and Instructions for Use thoroughly prior to injecting. You can also check out our video overview of self-injecting, and download our Self-Injection Guide.
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.
