How Do You Know When a Saxenda® (Liraglutide) Pen Is Empty?
You will know that your Saxenda pen is empty when you look at the small window on the side of the pen with the cap removed and see the plunger is all the way at the bottom. If the plunger is at the bottom, there is no medication left. If you try to dial another dose, you will feel resistance and not be able to turn to the dial. Each Saxenda pen contains 18 mg of medication, so if you are taking 3 mg per day for a 30 day supply you’ll need a total of 5 pens.
