Read all the instructions, including the frequently asked questions.
Follow the Instructions for Use precisely to mix the medicine and prepare the pen for injection.
Keep these instructions and use them each time you prepare your medicine.
The pen has medicine powder in 1 compartment and water in another compartment. At the end of Step A, you will need to mix them together by twisting the pen, slowly and gently rock the pen side to side (like a windshield wiper) 5 times to mix the medicine, then wait for 15 or 30 minutes (depending on the dose).
After the 15 or 30 minute wait, slowly and gently rock the pen side to side (like a windshield wiper) 5 times, for the second time, to mix the medicine.
Attach the needle after the second time that you rock the pen side to side (like a windshield wiper) 5 times. The number 2 will still appear in the window while you are attaching the needle.

How to Use TANZEUM
This video will guide you through every step of the Instructions for Use. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using the 30-mg dosage strength pen, but the same steps should be followed with a 50-mg dosage strength pen. The only difference is that the 50-mg dosage strength pen requires a longer wait time after mixing for the medicine to dissolve.
