- Small amounts of bleeding at the injection site can increase the risk of transmission of blood-borne diseases between partners.
It is very important that you follow the directions for using Edex carefully. If you have any questions, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Edex can only be obtained with a prescription from your doctor. You or your partner should be well trained on the proper injection method before using Edex at home.
