Ustekinumab should be taken as prescribed and you should not stop using the medication without discussing it with your doctor. Stopping Ustekinumab abruptly may cause the symptoms of your condition to return.
It may be taken alone, with methotrexate, or with other disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
Ustekinumab is available in a solution for injection that comes in a pre-filled form (ready-to-use). It is given via injection under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach, thigh or upper outer arm or into the blood vessel (intravenous infusion). You and your doctor will decide if you should administer Ustekinumab yourself. You or your carer should receive training on how to inject the medication from your doctor, pharmacist or specialty nurse prior to attempting administration on your own. Always remember to rotate the injection site.
Your doctor will decide how much Ustekinumab you need and tor how long.
If you miss a dose, inject it as soon as you remember. Talk to your doctor to discuss when the next dose should be given.
