A small air bubble may remain at the needle tip, but it will not be injected.

Selecting your dose

Check and make sure that the dose selector is set at 0.

H. Turn the dose selector to the number of units you need to inject. The pointer should line up with your dose.

The dose can be corrected either up or down by turning the dose selector in either direction until the correct dose lines up with the pointer (see diagram H). When turning the dose selector, be careful not to press the push-button as insulin will come out.

Turn the dose selector to the number of units you need to inject

You cannot select a dose larger than the number of units left in the cartridge.

You will hear a click for every single unit dialed. Do not set the dose by counting the number of clicks you hear because you may get an incorrect dose.

  • Δ Do not use the cartridge scale printed on the cartridge to measure your dose of insulin.

Giving the injection

Do the injection exactly as shown to you by your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider should tell you if you need to pinch the skin before injecting. Wipe the skin with an alcohol swab and let the area dry.

Insulin aspart can be injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach area, buttocks, upper legs (thighs), or upper arms.

Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you choose for each dose to reduce your risk of getting lipodystrophy (pits in skin or thickened skin) and localized cutaneous amyloidosis (skin with lumps) at the injection sites.
Do not use the same injection site for each injection.
Do not inject where the skin has pits, is thickened, or has lumps.
Do not inject where the skin is tender, bruised, scaly or hard, or into scars or damaged skin.

I. Insert the needle into your skin.

Inject the dose by pressing the push-button all the way in until the 0 lines up with the pointer (see diagram I). Be careful only to push the button when injecting.

Giving the injection

Turning the dose selector will not inject insulin.

J. Keep the needle in the skin for at least 6 seconds, and keep the push-button pressed all the way in until the needle has been pulled out from the skin (see diagram J). This will make sure that the full dose has been given.

You may see a drop of insulin at the needle tip. This is normal and has no effect on the dose you just received. If blood appears after you take the needle out of your skin, press the injection site lightly with an alcohol swab.
Do not rub the area.

Making sure that the full dose has been given

After the injection

Do not recap the needle. Recapping can lead to a needle stick injury. Remove the needle from the Insulin Aspart FlexPen after each injection and dispose of it. This helps to prevent infection, leakage of insulin, and will help to make sure you inject the right dose of insulin.

If you do not have a sharps container, carefully slip the needle into the outer needle cap. Safely remove the needle and throw it away as soon as you can.

K. Put the pen cap on the Insulin Aspart FlexPen and store the Insulin Aspart FlexPen without the needle attached (see diagram K).

Storing without the needle attached helps prevent leaking, blocking of the needle, and air from entering the Pen.
