Caution For Usage
Special precautions for disposal and other handling: Apidra SoloStar 100 units/ml in a pre-filled pen is only suitable for subcutaneous injections. If administration by syringe, intravenous injection or infusion pump is necessary, a vial should be used.
Before first use, the pen must be stored at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
Inspect the cartridge before use. It must only be used if the solution is clear, colourless, with no solid particles visible, and if it is of water-like consistency. Since Apidra is a solution, it does not require resuspension before use.
Empty pens must never be reused and must be properly discarded.
To prevent any kind of contamination, the use of the pre-filled pen should remain strictly for a single patient use.
Insulin label must always be checked before each injection to avoid medication errors between insulin glulisine and other insulins (see Precautions).
