For the girls that are doing injectables. What do you do if you have meds left over in the pen? Do you just do two injections. I am trying to figure this out. Before my dosage was 300 iu and I had a 900 iu pen so it worked out pretty well. But, now that they upped the dosage it isn't going to be split up evenly. I probably have 75 to 100 iu left in today's pen (maybe even more). So should I use whatever is in there and do a second injection??? If I do should I do them in the same place or choose two separate injection sites? Sorry I keep asking so many questions. What did you do? I don't want to waste any of my meds.

I did two separate injections, one to use up the old pen, and another to finish up my dose. I did them in two different injection sites. When the nurse gave me the injection training, this is how she suggested to do it, so that's what I did! Good luck, Patty!

I'm on insulin and use the pens. There are times I've only got 6-10 units left and I need more. My Dr said just use the rest from one pen and then start a new pen to finish the injection at a diffrent site.

One time I did 4 injections to use up partial pens! I was a walking pin cushion and my dose of follistim was so high.
