Combined with an insulin pump was able to get A1C below 7.0 for the first time in years.

Both sample pens are defective. They don't dispense the meds even after priming - on the next shot the previous one comes out when the pen is primed. Which means no medicine was delivered. Followed all directions and been using long term insulin for 5 years so not the operator.

It is very effective in maintaining blood sugars, and the intake of carbs/sugars. I would not recommend for someone with a extremely active lifestyle since it is fast-acting, and can cause drops in your blood sugar more than you've ever experienced.

It works great to lower my blood glucose after meals, but it makes my heart beatting very fast, then swollen tonsils and throat tightness!

Have used Novolog flexpens since 2004 with no problems except over the last few months. Several instances of plunger sticking (but may be needle prob vs pen issue) and more concerning, I've had to toss 3 pens in last few months because the medicine simply was not doing its job. Began new pens each time and levels went right down. If this continues will seek alternative, as this is unhealthy for me and too costly to be tossing just to find one in box that is effective.

Delivery system is flawed. It is not just one pen or one box. I have had several pens where depressing the plunger is very difficult resulting in pen movement or pain.. monologue has replaced an entire box because of one flawed pen. I will be requesting my doctor for an alternative
