Important Administration Instructions

AIMOVIG is for subcutaneous use only.

The needle shield within the white or orange cap of the AIMOVIG prefilled autoinjector and gray needle cap of the AIMOVIG prefilled syringe contain dry natural rubber (a derivative of latex), which may cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to latex.

AIMOVIG is intended for patient self-administration. Prior to use, provide proper training to patients and/or caregivers on how to prepare and administer AIMOVIG using the single-dose prefilled autoinjector or single-dose prefilled syringe, including aseptic technique [see Instructions for Use]:

  • ‚ÄčPrior to subcutaneous administration, allow AIMOVIG to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes protected from direct sunlight [see How Supplied/Storage and Handling (16.2)]. This is important for administering the entire dose and helps minimize discomfort. Do not warm by using a heat source such as hot water or a microwave.
  • Do not shake the product.
  • Inspect visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration [see Dosage Forms and Strengths (3)]. Do not use if the solution is cloudy or discolored or contains flakes or particles.
  • Administer AIMOVIG in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm subcutaneously. Do not inject into areas where the skin is tender, bruised, red, or hard.
  • Both prefilled autoinjector and prefilled syringe are single-dose and deliver the entire contents.
