V-go Disposable Insulin Delivery Device
Healthcare Professional Prescribing Considerations
Dosing considerationsWhen selecting a V-Go option, healthcare professionals should refer to their own experience when initiating continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy with a patient. If unfamiliar, the healthcare professional should refer to insulin therapy guidelines from diabetes associations. The following should be considered when initially prescribing the V-Go: - Understand the total daily dose of insulin your patient is actually taking with their current insulin regimen versus what is being prescribed. Selecting the correct V-Go option may lessen the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). - It is common practice to reduce the total daily insulin dose when starting a patient on continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy and this reduction should be considered when starting a patient on the V-Go.
Other prescribing considerationsA separate prescription of a U100 fast-acting insulin is required for use with the V-Go (see Section 3 for insulins tested with the V-Go). - Two (2) vials of insulin are required for the V-Go 20 option. - Three (3) vials of insulin are required for the V-Go 30 and 40 options.
The V-Go comes in 3 options for your insulin needs. Your doctor or healthcare professional has selected the most appropriate V-Go option for you.
The 3 V-Go options are:– 20 Units/24 hr (0.83 U/hr) basal rate and up to 36 Units of on-demand bolus dosing in 2-Unit increments 1 – 30 Units/24 hr (1.25 U/hr) basal rate and up to 36 Units of on-demand bolus dosing in 2-Unit increments 1 – 40 Units/24 hr (1.67 U/hr) basal rate and up to 36 Units of on-demand bolus dosing in 2-Unit increments 1 1 36 Units of insulin are available for on-demand bolus dosing in all V-Go options. Bolus doses are delivered in 2-Unit increments. You can only push the bolus delivery button 18 times in every 24-hour period. Each push of the bolus delivery button delivers 2 Units of insulin (1 push = 2 Units). IMPORTANT: A separate prescription for insulin is required for use with the V-Go. A U100 fast-acting insulin should be used to fill the V-Go. (See Section 3 for insulins tested with the V-Go.) V-Go 20 requires two (2) vials of insulin V-Go 30 and 40 require three (3) vials of insulin IMPORTANT: Let your healthcare professional know how much insulin you actually take each day. Your healthcare professional will help select the correct V-Go option for you. The correct V-Go option may lessen the risk of hypoglycemia. IMPORTANT: A V-Go Disposable Insulin Delivery Device that has been properly prescribed and used will deliver your insulin needs. Wear each V-Go for a full 24-hour period, including while you sleep. IMPORTANT: Do not use other insulin products while on V-Go therapy.
