Plegridy Pen

Plegridy Pen

Has anyone had problems with the plegridy pen? I used to be on Avonex auto inject and had problems pushing down the button. I got trained on plegridy this morning and it seemed very simple, but I tried to do it on my own tonight and it didn't go so well. I'll have to reorder the first pen now... Has anyone else had any problems with plegridy? (Please don't comment telling me to change to another med, plegridy is here to stay)

yes, one of my injections didn't work, seemed to be something in the mechanism. My husband is a tinkerer and was able to salvage the shot, but I wasn't happy that the device was faulty

I had a great training nurse who let me practice on myself with a pen with no meds until I was comfortable. Since they, I have had no issues with the pen. I am usually a bit nervous before the injection because I don't want to screw it up but otherwise, all good.

Just had a non triggering pen. Thankfully I have two more in the fridge. Glad I'm not the only one who has had one lock up.
