Anyone else having problems with Byetta pens? Over 1 year, have had to return 3-4 to pharmacy as couldn't turn to adjust dosage. They are getting reluctant to replace them. Have one now that needs pliers to turn prior to trying to push "down" to set dosage. Usually the plunger will not "plunge" to get dosage. Have not yet contacted E I Lilly about problem.

Jane, I'm not familiar with these pens but there are a few members who do use byetta and I hope they come along soon to help you out here.

When I have had problems with my pen in the past it was because I was not changing the needle every time I used the pen.  I actually got yelled at by the guy at Lily for not doing this.  Anyway they had me put new needle in and instructed me what to do to make it work.  Ever since then I have used new needles and don't have that problem.  Hope this helps.

I have never had any problems. I have also never failed to change the needles on my pen. That is not only unsanitary, but could allow for germs to get into the pen and create all kinds of nasty problems.
