Upon storage, a fine white deposit with a clear colourless supernatant can be observed.
Before administration, shake the syringe well to obtain a white, opaque, homogeneous suspension. Do not administer if particulate matter remains following shaking or if discoloration is observed or if the syringe appears to be physically damaged.
Any unused medicinal product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
