Blood Work Timing

Hey,

My 8 week blood work is coming up. I inject twice per week, Monday am and Thursday pm. When would be the ideal time to get lab work? Thursday morning?

Just before either injection time would be ideal to get your trough readings. Thursday morning would be fine. Monday morning/Thursday evening just before injection time would be “ideal” but it’s splitting hairs probably at that point.

I agree with the previous poster, right before your scheduled injection is the best time to see what your trough is to make sure you’re not falling below your therapeutic window. If you’re curious as to how high your peak levels get, 1 or 2 days after an injection will show you that.
