    Reviewed LevemirThe needle in the flexpen gets clogged way too easily. with other insulins, needle reuse saves the constant hassle I have when injecting levemir. Very inconvenient, after 40 years of easy insulin injections.

    Reviewed LevemirSupposed to make you gain less weight than NPH. Had to do 22 units more per day(72 units total), gained 8 lbs, average readings 170 to 190 in am. Absolutely ineffective and worthless. 3X more expensive than NPH.
