Additional information

Introduction

Introduction
-Xultophy is formulated with two primary components: Insulin degludec, a long-lasting basal insulin, and Liraglutide, an active GLP-1 receptor agonist. Both of these ingredients are derived through the recombinant DNA process from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This medication comes as a transparent, colorless liquid in a 3mL pre-filled pen designed for single-patient use. Each mL contains 100 units of Insulin degludec and 3.6mg of Liraglutide.

Usage

Usage:
-Administer Xultophy once daily through a subcutaneous injection. Before use, check the pen for any discoloration or visible particles. This medication is dosed in steps, with the pen capable of delivering 1 to 50 steps in a single injection, increasing by one step at a time. To minimize the chances of skin conditions like cutaneous amyloidosis and lipodystrophy, always alternate the injection sites. Do not exceed a daily dosage of 50 steps, equivalent to 50 units of Insulin degludec and 1.8mg of Liraglutide.
