Started using the Apidra Solostar pen about a month back +/- Found a small problem. Wondered if anybody else had encountered it… hopefully solved it too?!
Lilly’s Humalog pen had a slightly flared mid section which helpd keep the external grey cap on the thing almost always. The Apidra pen does not. In short the large external cornflower blue top-cap comes off the pen very, very easily.
Then getting the needle (even though it is covered too) is silly easy. In short once the external top is off the needle beneath gets bent like a blessed pretzel 9 time out of 10. Had to replace more of the screw on tips on the new pens in the last month than I’ve used in the last 5 years combined I think!
Anybody else had this poroblem with their pen whether Apidra’s Solostar or not??? How did you solve it?
