ow a dose larger than the amount of insulin remaining in the pen. It also permits dose corrections without loss of insulin, and provides doses in one-unit increments up to 60 units per injection (each pen contains 300 units in total). The dose scale of the improved FlexPen(R) automatically returns to zero after each injection to allow visual confirmation of dose delivery. Like the original FlexPen(R), once in use, FlexPen(R) does not require refrigeration (below 86° F) for up to 42 days if used with Levemir(R), for up to 28 days if used with NovoLog(R) and for up to 14 days if used with NovoLog(R) Mix 70/30.

"Although insulin pens are underused in the U.S. versus other countries, the continued innovation we've seen with FlexPen(R) may help meet the needs of people living with the challenges of this disease," said Bruce Bode, MD, FACE, Atlanta Diabetes Associates. Being easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to teach, the improved FlexPen(R) is a convenient option for taking insulin.

The improved FlexPen(R) is now available nationwide. FlexPen(R) is covered on more than 90 percent of insurance plans.

The prescribing information for FlexPen(R) is available by contacting Novo Nordisk or visiting novonordisk-us.com.
