The new Symlin (pramlintide) pen will help reduce errors

The new Symlin (pramlintide) pen will help reduce errors.

Symlin helps lower blood sugar...and is sometimes added when mealtime insulin is not enough for diabetes patients.

Using Symlin from the vials can lead to errors. The Symlin dose is written in MICROGRAMS (mcgs) on the Rx...but patients measure out their dose volume in UNITS with an insulin syringe.
