Prefilled syringe step-by-step instructions.

Based on what your doctor prescribes for you, each prefilled syringe contains 1 dose of either 200 mg/1.14 mL or 150 mg/1.14 mL of KEVZARA. This subcutaneous injection should be taken once every 2 weeks or as directed by your doctor.

The steps for taking a 200 mg/1.14 mL or 150 mg/1.14 mL dose of KEVZARA are the same. Here, we’ll show the 200 mg syringe. You should use the dose your doctor prescribed.

Keeping your KEVZARA cool.

When you fill your prescription for KEVZARA, it’s important to keep it in your refrigerator or the insulated travel bag that comes with your Treatment Support Kit. But once it reaches room temperature, you’ll have to use the syringe within 14 days or throw it away.

Disposing of your KEVZARA syringe safely.

Used and expired prescriptions can be dangerous if they’re not treated properly. So how should you throw away your KEVZARA prefilled syringes?

  • Put the used syringe in an FDA-approved sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not throw away (dispose of) syringe in your household trash
  • If you do not have an FDA-approved sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that:
    • is made of a heavy-duty plastic

    • can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid, without sharps being able to come out

    • is upright and stable during use

    • is leak-resistant

    • is properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container

  • When your sharps disposal container is almost full, you’ll need to follow your community guidelines on the right way to dispose of your sharps disposal container. There may be state or local laws about how you should throw away used needles and syringes. For more information about safe sharps disposal, and for specific information about sharps disposal in the state that you live in, go to the FDA’s website at fda.gov/safesharpsdisposal
  • Do not reuse the syringe
  • Do not dispose of your used sharps disposal container in your household trash unless your community guidelines permit this. Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container

Important: always keep the sharps disposal container out of the reach of children.
