Description

Repatha Sure Click 140mg injection contains the active ingredient Evolocumab, which lowers cholesterol. Evolocumab helps lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL) in the blood with a proper diet. In addition to “statin” drugs, ezetimibe, and LDL apheresis, it may also be used with other LDL-lowering treatments. Heart disease patients also use evolocumab to prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Monoclonal antibodies are a class of drugs that include this medication. It improves how well your body gets rid of LDL cholesterol. Additionally, it is used by children and adults with high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) due to familial conditions or with a history of cardiovascular disease who have high cholesterol. Combined with a cholesterol-lowering diet, it helps prevent heart-related issues caused by fatty deposits.

The medication may work better if you exercise, lose weight if overweight, stop smoking, and eat a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet. More information can be obtained from your doctor.

Repatha is a prescription medication and is not insulin.

Diabetes developed in 8.1% of people taking Repatha

●  People who took a placebo developed diabetes in 7.7% of cases

Symptoms of diabetes include fatigue, thirst, dry mouth, and frequent urination.

Usage

Follow your doctor’s instructions exactly when using this medicine. If you’re not sure, talk to your doctor.

Depending on the underlying condition, a different dose is recommended:

Adults with primary hypercholesterolemia and mixed dyslipidemia should take 140 mg every two weeks or 420 mg monthly.

Children aged ten years or older with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia should receive 140 mg every two weeks or 420 mg once a month.

A starting dose of 420 mg once a month is recommended for adults and children aged ten years or older with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Your doctor may increase the amount after 12 weeks to 420 mg every two weeks. A doctor may decide to start you on 420 mg every two weeks if you also undergo apheresis, a procedure similar to dialysis that removes cholesterol and other fats from the blood.

Adults with established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (a history of heart attack, stroke, or blood vessel problems) should take 140 mg every two weeks or 420 mg once a month.

Repatha is injected under the skin (subcutaneous).

Pre-filled pens contain only 140 mg of medicine per pen, so if your doctor prescribes 420 mg, you must use three pre-filled pens. All injections should be given within 30 minutes of reaching room temperature.

You or your caregiver must receive training on how to prepare and inject Repatha correctly if your doctor decides that you or your caregiver can give Repatha injections. It would be best not to inject Repatha until your doctor or nurse shows you how.

Missed Dose

Use the missed dose within 7 days of the injection’s due date. If you are more than seven days late for the injection, skip the missed dose. If you miss a dose, go back to your original schedule and take the medicine again when your next scheduled dose is due.

To make up for a missed dose, do not take extra medicine.

Overdose

If you suspect poisoning, call 1-800-222-1222 or seek emergency medical attention.
