It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits. This will allow your doctor to see if the medicine is working properly to lower your cholesterol level and to decide if you should continue to use it. Blood tests may be needed to check for unwanted effects.

Serious allergic reactions may occur while you are using this medicine. Tell your doctor right away if you have the following symptoms: a rash, itching skin, difficulty with breathing or swallowing, hives, nausea, reddening of the skin, especially around the ears, swelling of the eyes, face, or inside of the nose, or unusual tiredness or weakness.

The needle cover of the prefilled syringe or autoinjector contains dry natural rubber (a derivative of latex), which may cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to latex. The single use Pushtronex™ system is not made with natural rubber latex. Tell your doctor if you have a latex allergy before you start using this medicine.
