How to take injection Exemptia?
Exemptia is administered by subcutaneous injection so best sites are front of thighs or lower abdomen (belly). If you choose your abdomen do not use the area 2 inches around your belly button (navel). Before injecting Exemptia, clean injection site with alcohol swab. Hold the body of the prefilled syringe in one hand between the thumb and index finger. Hold the syringe in your hand like a pencil.
With our other hand gently squeeze the area of cleaned skin and hold it firmly.
Using a quick, dart- like motion, insert the needle into the squeezed skin at an angle of about 45degrees.
After the needle is in, let go of the skin. Pull back gently on the plunger.
