Store the syringes in the refrigerator, protected from light. Do not allow them to freeze. Take each syringe out of the fridge about 60 to 90 minutes before each dose to allow it to come to room temperature.
Anakinra comes in prefilled syringes (with needles attached), each containing 100 mg of anakinra. These syringes are sold in packs containing 28 syringes (a four-week supply). The syringes are marked to allow for dosing of 20 to 100 mg of anakinra, although each syringe is good for just one dose (if only part of the medication is used in the syringe, the rest must be discarded).
Currently, there is no generic version of anakinra licensed for sale (see Generic Kineret).
