Patients have the flexibility to self-administer their Acthar dose wherever and whenever is suitable for them. Dose and frequency must be individualized, taking into account the patient’s medical condition, severity of illness, and initial response to treatment.
When you prescribe Acthar, you may request Home Injection Training Services (HITS) for your patient on the Referral/Prescription Form. Support specialists from A.S.A.P. will arrange this training.
