Novo Nordisk is committed to and encourages the safe and proper disposal of our products by patients. Novo Nordisk's product portfolio includes several injectable medications (in both vial and pen device) that require the use of needles, as well as pen needles. Our injectable medicines are all distributed with FDA-approved instructions for use that educate patients regarding the proper disposal of our products after use, including directing them to any state or local laws governing disposal.
Patients possessing a Novo Nordisk prescription pen or vial that is empty or lacks a usable quantity of medication may participate in our mail-back disposal program. Sharps including needles and syringes are not accepted via the program. Medication disposal containers may be easily obtained by clicking here.
