Here's some good news for anyone who's on Symlin or who's thinking about it:
The FDA has approved two Symlin pens.
The pens offer fixed dosaging: a SymlinPen 60 will allow for 15, 30, 45, or 60 micrograms per dose while the SymlinPen offers fixed dosages of 60 or 120 micrograms per dose. Both pens can be kept at room temperature after initial usage, and both are purchased as pre-filled injection devices (which suggests they are disposable units, though I am unable to find any exact information). Release date is expected to be December 2007.
I cannot speculate on the price of these devices; isn't Symlin fairly expensive already?
Now if only they could get Symlin approved for us Canadians.
