Encourage Patients to Use a New Pen Needle With Each Insulin Injection

Levemir's switch from the FlexPen to FlexTouch will put more attention on avoiding dispensing errors with insulin pens.

Changes in pen devices...or the use of multiple pens that look similar...can lead to mix-ups and blood sugar problems.

Product selection. Check drug names, labeling, and coloring when selecting insulin pens. Humalog KwikPen has burgundy packaging...and could be mistaken for the red packaging on Humalog Mix 50/50 KwikPen.
