Consider asking your doctor for multiple packs of BAQSIMI
It’s important to have BAQSIMI with you in case of a low blood sugar emergency. Ask your doctor to prescribe multiple packs of BAQSIMI, to help you be prepared for a low blood sugar emergency almost anywhere you may go. Consider keeping one at school, work, with family, and in places you or your child spend a lot of time. Remember to let those close to you know where you keep your BAQSIMI and make sure they know how to use it before an emergency. The dosage for BAQSIMI is the same for people aged 4 years and older and has not been studied in patients under 4 years.
Keep an eye on your BAQSIMI expiration date
A low blood sugar emergency can happen anytime, which makes it important to have a plan. Look at the expiration date on your BAQSIMI each time you get a new prescription. The expiration date can be found on the outside of the tube (yellow container) under “Exp. Date/Control No.” The date is written out as month and year to reflect the month and year of expiration. An expired BAQSIMI shouldn’t be used.
