9 Tried-and-Tested Tips to Make Injections Easier with RA
Do you use injectable medication to treat your rheumatoid arthritis (RA)? Injecting yourself with prescribed medications can be challenging. But there are strategies that you can use to help take the sting out of injections.
Consider trying these nine tips for making your RA injections easier.
1. Look for auto-injectors
Some types of RA drugs are available in easy-to-use auto-injectors. These devices typically consist of spring-loaded syringes with premeasured doses of medication. You might find them easier to use than manual syringes. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if auto-injectors are available with your prescribed drug.
While some insurance plans cover auto-injectors, others don’t. If you have health insurance, consider contacting your provider to ask if auto-injectors are covered.
