Special precautions for disposal and other handling: Victoza should not be used if it does not appear clear and colourless or almost colourless.
Victoza should not be used if it has been frozen.
Victoza can be administered with needles up to a length of 8 mm and as thin as 32G. The pen is designed to be used with NovoFine or NovoTwist disposable needles.
Needles are not included.
The patient should be advised to discard the injection needle in accordance with local requirements after each injection and store the pen without an injection needle attached. This prevents contamination, infection and leakage. It also ensures that the dosing is accurate.
Incompatibilities: Substances added to Victoza may cause degradation of liraglutide. In the absence of compatibility studies, this medicinal product must not be mixed with other medicinal products.
