It's important to immediately dispose of your needles and syringes in a sharps disposal container. You should also dispose of pens or vials that are empty or lack a usable quantity through a drug-collection program or by placing them in an appropriate container according to local laws.
You can order a free sharps or medicine container from Novo Nordisk and we’ll take care of safely disposing the container for you.
Tresiba® FlexTouch® pens can go almost anywhere because you can keep them in your pocket, purse, or bag.
Make sure to keep your Tresiba® in your carry-on luggage when traveling. Insulin should never be placed in checked luggage because of the extreme temperatures it may be exposed to.
Remember to keep Tresiba® out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (up to 86°F) once in use.
While we encourage you to take Tresiba® the same time every day, sometimes your schedule may change or you may forget to take your dose. If you’re changing time zones, just make sure to leave at least 8 hours between doses.
