Frequently Asked Questions
Is Bleeding Possible?
Bleeding usually does not occur when using Inojex. As with needle injections, Inojex might cause some damage to the uppermost capillaries. In these very rare cases, this might cause a pin-sized drop of blood to emerge at the injection site. This is especially the case if the patient has been taking medication to treat cardiovascular disease (e.g., Marcumar, ASS100 = time-released aspirin) or normal aspirin for pain relief.
Can the ampoules be used again?
No. In order to guarantee sterility and function, the ampoules are intended to be used once only. Inolife does not recommend the multiple use of ampoules.
What are the minimum respective maximum quantities of medication that can be administered per application?
A minimum of 0.05 ml, and a maximum of 0.30 ml of a liquid drug can be administered using the Inojex. For insulin, see the set of questions under the heading of “Questions on the use of insulin.”
Using Insulin with Inojex?
Insulin works with Inojex. Currently Inojex30 Needle Free Injector handles a maximum of 0.30 ml of insulin. Using standard U-100 insulin, this allows for up to 30 units of insulin per injection with Inojex.
