Your doctor will explain how you should take Bydureon BCise. They’ll also explain how much to take and how often. Be sure to follow their instructions.

Bydureon BCise comes as a liquid suspension in a prefilled autoinjector pen that you’ll use to inject the drug under your skin. The pen is single-dose, meaning you’ll discard it into a sharps container after one injection.

You may be wondering about the needle size on the Bydureon BCise pen. The needle is small, and is hidden within the pen.

Before picking up your prescription, your doctor or pharmacist will show you how to use the Bydureon BCise autoinjector. You can also see step-by-step instructions here.

You can inject Bydureon BCise into the following areas:

It’s important to rotate your injection site with every dose. You can use the same area for more than one dose in a row, but you should change the exact spot where you give your injection. For example, if you give your injection into your belly, use a different area of your belly for each dose.

Your doctor might prescribe Bydureon BCise by itself or with other diabetes drugs.

If you’re taking another drug by injection, such as insulin, don’t give the injections right next to each other. Make sure to use a different spot for each injection.

Before you start using Bydureon BCise, be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the medications you take. It’s important that you don’t take other medications that have exenatide as the active drug (such as Byetta). Exenatide is the active drug in Bydureon BCise.
