... to run low. When I use it I try to leave it in for at least 20 seconds, but it nearly always has insulin still dribbling out of it when I remove the needle. My latest kwikpen is down to about 60 units, and even when priming it several times before use, little to no insulin comes out. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there something else I should be doing?

I realize this answer is very, very late ... but just for the future if you ever have problems like this then I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer. If there is in fact a fault with the device then they should replace it. All the best ... and hopefully you haven't had continuing problems with it.
