How Should Neupogen Be Stored?

Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Neupogen as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. If you have missed more than one dose, it is important that you contact your healthcare provider.
