How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

Omontys should be stored under refrigeration. Do not freeze this medicine, and do not use any Omontys that has been frozen.
 
Omontys single-use vials and prefilled syringes can be kept outside of the refrigerator, if necessary, for up to 30 days at up to 77°F. Because the single-use vials and prefilled syringes do not contain any preservatives, you should not save any of the solution left over from an injection.
 
Omontys multi-dose vials must be stored under refrigeration and must be discarded 28 days after being opened.
 
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not receive your Omontys dose as scheduled, contact your healthcare provider. Depending on how much time has passed (as well as other factors, such as your latest blood tests), your healthcare provider will give you further instructions.
