INFORMATION

DUPIXENT is a medicine that is administered by subcutaneous injection. You may decide whether patients self-administer DUPIXENT at home, or you administer in office.1

Administer the subcutaneous injection into the thigh or abdomen, except for the 2 inches (5 cm) around the navel. The upper arm can also be used if a caregiver administers the injection. Be sure to rotate the injection site with each injection. DO NOT inject DUPIXENT into skin that is tender, damaged, bruised, or scarred.1

DUPIXENT is intended for use under the guidance of a healthcare provider. A patient may self-inject DUPIXENT after receiving training in subcutaneous injection technique using the 300 mg pre-filled syringe or 300 mg pre-filled pen. For pediatric patients 12 to 17 years of age, it is recommended that DUPIXENT be administered under the supervision of an adult. There is no loading dose for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) patients.1
