What If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget a dose of PegIntron, call your healthcare provider for further instructions.

How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

Store PegIntron pens under refrigeration, but be careful not to let them freeze. PegIntron vials should be kept at room temperature. Both the vials and the pens are for single use only, as they do not contain any preservatives. If your dose is less than the full vial or pen, the remaining unused amount must be discarded (it cannot be saved for later).
Once mixed up, a dose of PegIntron should be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator and used within 24 hours.
