Pegasys Injections
Feb 27, 2003

Sometimes when I prepare the syringe using the Pegasys vial I get a huge air bubble and the only way to get it out is to put the medicine back in the vial and redraw. After the air bubble forms it won't draw anymore. I was wondering if in any way this could damage the medicine since it says not to shake too much.

Thank you very much.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

That should not be a problem. Just be sure it remains sterile. Keep going! DTD
