Getting your first FlexPro® pen
Unlike with most medications, you won’t just walk down to your local pharmacy to pick up your Norditropin® prescription. Instead, you’ll work with a Specialty Pharmacy. This will be the company that ships your medicine to you on a regular basis.
- Your NordiCare® Case Manager will call to let you know that the Specialty Pharmacy has shipped the product.
- You’ll receive the package, which is shipped overnight on ice. If you are concerned about the temperature of the FlexPro® pen when it arrives, check to make sure that the liquid in the scale (the transparent window) is clear and colorless, or call your NordiCare® Case Manager with any questions. Refrigerate the pen upon receipt.a
- After the first time you use the pen, you can store it at room temperature (up to 77°F) for up to 21 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.a
a All unused Norditropin® products must be refrigerated (36°F to 46°F) prior to first use. Do not freeze and avoid direct light. After first injection, Norditropin® pens can either be stored outside of the refrigerator (up to 77°F) for use within 3 weeks, or in the refrigerator (between 36°F and 46°F) for use within 4 weeks.
JumpStart™ Program: The JumpStart™ program may be able to help you start with Norditropin® before your insurance coverage begins, as well as stay on the therapy through changes like moves and insurance coverage gaps.
