Mobile Administration Program
At your home, office, or destination—trained nurses can administer your injection
As a patient receiving Sandostatin® LAR Depot (octreotide acetate for injectable suspension) therapy, you know how important it is to keep to your regularly scheduled appointments and get your injections exactly as prescribed. That's why the Mobile Administration Program (MAP) was developed—to make coordinating your treatment a little easier.
If your doctor recommends you as an appropriate patient to participate in the program and you're eligible, you'll be able to receive your injections at home, at work, or while you're traveling, administered by a MAP nurse who is trained in the mixing and administration of Sandostatin LAR Depot. To take advantage of this convenient way to receive your injections:
