How should I store HEMLIBRA?

  • Store your HEMLIBRA in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C). Do not freeze it and do not shake it
  • Keep your HEMLIBRA in its original package to protect it from light until you are ready to use it
  • If needed, unopened vials of HEMLIBRA can be stored out of the refrigerator and then returned to the refrigerator. HEMLIBRA should not be stored out of the refrigerator for more than a total of 7 days or at a temperature greater than 86°F (30°C)
  • Once you transfer HEMLIBRA to a syringe, you must use it right away

How should I properly dispose of sharps?

  • Throw away any unused HEMLIBRA left in the vial, and your used needles and syringes in a sharps disposal container immediately after use 
  • Do not throw away these materials in your household trash or toilet
  • Do not reuse any needles or syringes
  • Do not overfill your sharps container. It is important to safely dispose of your sharps when the container reaches ¾ full

Keep HEMLIBRA and all medicines out of the reach of children.

Get an FDA-approved sharps container from Genentech, or learn how and where to dispose of your used HEMLIBRA needles by calling 1-866-HEMLIBRA (1-866-436-5427) for information about the Genentech sharps disposal program.
