Description

Tresiba FlexTouch Pens (100 units/mL) are pre-filled disposable pens containing 300 units of insulin. Tresiba is classified as an ultra-long-acting basal insulin, specifically insulin degludec. It is prescribed to manage diabetes mellitus in adults, adolescents, and children aged one year and older. Tresiba aids in lowering blood sugar levels and is intended for once-daily administration.

When deviations from your regular dosing schedule occur, you have flexibility in adjusting the dosing time due to Tresiba’s prolonged blood sugar-lowering effect. Tresiba can be combined with rapid-acting insulin for meals. For type 2 diabetes mellitus, Tresiba can be used alongside oral diabetes medications or other injectable antidiabetic treatments aside from insulin.

Insulin degludec serves as a substitute for the body’s natural insulin production. Its extended duration of action, similar to insulin detemir, provides a consistent low release throughout the day. This aids in transporting blood glucose into cells for energy utilization. Insulin degludec can be used alongside other diabetes medications, including shorter-acting insulin products.

Tresiba FlexTouch Pens, available in 200 units/mL as well, remain effective for up to eight weeks after being opened.

Additional information

Introduction

Introduction
-Tresiba (insulin degludec) is an extended-duration insulin that initiates its action a few hours post-injection and maintains a consistent effect over 24 hours. It is prescribed to reduce elevated blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes.

Usage

Usage
-Tresiba FlexTouch 100 is administered through subcutaneous injections, providing precise insulin doses for effective blood sugar level management. Featuring a concentration of 100 units/mL, Tresiba FlexTouch 100 ensures convenient and precise dosing tailored to your specific requirements.

Side Effects

Side Effects
-Every medication can lead to side effects, although not everyone experiences them. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is a common side effect of insulin treatment (may affect more than 1 in 10 people) and can be severe. Severe hypoglycemia can lead to unconsciousness and even life-threatening situations. If you notice signs of low blood sugar, take steps to raise it immediately.

Injecting insulin at the same spot can lead to changes in fatty tissue, such as shrinkage (lipoatrophy) or thickening (lipohypertrophy) (may affect up to 1 in 100 people). Lumps under the skin might also arise from a protein buildup called amyloid (cutaneous amyloidosis; frequency unknown). Injecting into lumpy or altered areas may reduce insulin effectiveness. Vary injection sites to minimize these skin changes.

Local reactions at injection sites are possible, including pain, redness, hives, swelling, and itching. Usually, these responses resolve in a few days. If they persist beyond a few weeks, consult your doctor. Seek medical attention promptly if the reactions become serious.

Tresiba may lead to joint swelling due to initial water retention. As you start the medication, your body might retain more water than usual, leading to temporary swelling around joints, notably ankles.

Storage

Storage
Unopened insulin medication, including Tresiba, is best stored in the refrigerator. Unopened Tresiba can also be kept at room temperature, but it should be discarded after 56 days.
For in-use storage of Tresiba:
– It can be stored at room temperature (below 86°F) or refrigerated (36°F to 46°F) for up to eight weeks (56 days).
– Store it in a place shielded from direct sunlight and excessive heat.
– Do not freeze or use insulin that has been frozen.
– Make sure it's inaccessible to children and pets.
– Do not dispose of medication in household trash or wastewater (sink or toilet).
– Consult your pharmacist for proper medication disposal guidelines.

Warning and Precautions

Warning and Precautions
-Avoid using a syringe to extract insulin from a Tresiba FlexTouch pen to prevent dosing errors or potential overdose.
Inform your doctor of any pertinent medical history, especially liver or kidney disease, and allergies to insulin degludec or its components.
Stress, surgery, injury, or fever can impact blood sugar levels. Notify your doctor for potential insulin treatment adjustments.
Before surgery, share your insulin usage with healthcare providers, including prescriptions, OTC drugs, supplements, and vitamins.
Missed doses should be continued as usual; pediatric patients should consult their doctor.
Traveling across time zones may require insulin schedule changes; carry extra insulin and supplies.
Never share Tresiba pens, needles, or syringes, as they can spread infections or pathogens.
Insulin regimen changes need medical oversight, including adjustments to other medications.
Avoid Tresiba if you have liver or kidney disease and during hypoglycemia. Always consult your doctor.
