Fiasp Flextouch is an insulin pen containing insulin aspart with added L-arginine and niacinamide. These added ingredients accelerate insulin absorption. As Fiasp starts to work faster than other insulins, it is suitable as a mealtime insulin.
The Flextouch pen is a single-use delivery system. It features a “dial-a-dose” wheel that enables precise dose adjustment of up to 1-unit increments. Needles that are compatible with Fiasp Flextouch include NovoFine Plus and NovoTwist needles. Each pen contains 3 mL of 100 units/mL Fiasp solution for injection, and each carton contains 5 pens.
What is it used for?
This insulin pen contains a mealtime insulin utilized to curb post-prandial blood sugar spikes experienced by diabetic patients dependent on insulin therapy. This insulin is used together with a long-acting insulin as part of a complete insulin treatment regimen. Fiasp should be administered right before a meal or within 20 minutes of starting a meal.
Why use Fiasp Flextouch?
This insulin is a fast-acting formulation that begins working much faster than normal insulin. Injecting insulin with a pen provides more accurate dosing and reduces injection pain, and the Flextouch out-performs similar drug delivery systems like the KwikPen and the Solostar.
