Eylea

What If I Overdose on Eylea?

An overdose with this medicine is highly unlikely, as it is injected by your healthcare provider and because an entire vial of Eylea contains just one dose.
 

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not receive an Eylea injection as scheduled, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible. This medication is most effective when used on a monthly basis, and missing doses may decrease its effectiveness.
 

How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

Your healthcare provider should store Eylea under refrigeration.
 

Available Strengths

Each vial contains 0.285 mL of Eylea, with a concentration of 40 mg per mL. This amount is just enough for one 0.05-mL dose of the medication; it is impossible to remove every last drop of a medication in a vial, so there is always some overfill.
 
If you need treatment in both eyes, you will need one vial for each eye; the same vial cannot be used for two eyes.
 

Can I Buy Generic Eylea?

This medication is not available in generic form (see Generic Eylea).
