Reminder, a nurse is always available for you to ask questions
A HAEGARDA nurse can come to your home to help you get more comfortable with preparing and injecting your medicine, and to help you learn safe practices. Once you've been trained, you still have access to follow-up support from your HAEGARDA nurse, who can answer questions about self-administration on the phone, by video chat, or in person, depending on your preference.
You can reach the Nurse Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 1-888-599-1645 or learn more here.
Here are a few tips that can make it easier to start and stay with HAEGARDA:
Follow up with injection training
Through HAEGARDA ConnectSM, you can have a nurse come to your home to help you get comfortable with preparing and injecting your medicine, and to help you learn safe practices. This training is available at no cost to you at the start of your treatment. HAEGARDA nurses can train those diagnosed with HAE, parents, and/or caregivers.
Follow the injection prep and self-administration instructions
Getting confident with the process takes time. You can read the brochure or watch the self-administration video above as often as you like. Use this guide to assist in your infusions.
Create a routine
Take HAEGARDA at the same time and on the same days each week. Use a calendar, planner, or journal to help you track your dosing schedule.
Slow and steady
Because you take it by a subcutaneous injection, HAEGARDA is absorbed and processed slowly. That means a steady, effective level of C1-INH stays in your system between doses.
Continue to take HAEGARDA
You should continue to take HAEGARDA as prescribed to prevent HAE attacks, even if you haven’t had an attack in a while.
