Bydureon should be stored in the refrigerator; do not freeze it. This means you should take care that your refrigerator is not set too cold. If your dose is less than the full vial, the remaining unused amount must be discarded; do not save it for later.
If absolutely necessary, this medication can be stored at room temperature for up to four weeks. After four weeks, the medication must be discarded. Also, discard any of the medication that has been frozen or has expired.
If you miss a dose of Bydureon and it is at least three days until your next scheduled dose, simply take the missed dose as soon as you remember and continue with your usual schedule. However, if it is one or two days until your next dose, just skip the missed dose and continue with your usual schedule.
If at any time you want to change your dosage days, you may do so, as long as there has been at least three days since the previous dose.
Bydureon comes in a carton with four single-dose trays. Each tray comes with everything you need to mix and inject the medication. This includes a vial of the dry powder medication, a prefilled syringe containing the liquid used to mix the injection, a vial connector, and two needles (one needle is a spare).
