- The "pen" is a pre-filled, concentrated amount of interferon, for
injection. It is about the size of large pen, that you screw on a very
small, and narrow, special needle, and you dial in your dose at the
bottom. Since the needle is smaller, and the interferon more
concentrated, many people find it easier to use. You don't have to draw
from a vial, and all the other hassels, just dial in the dose to the
line on the bottom, screw on a cap, and just push the bottom after you
pierce your skin. You then unscrew the needle, place back the cap on the
pen, and put it back into the refrigerator. When done with that pen,
dump it into the same sharp's container.
It is more convient, many patients state it "burns" less, and "hurts"
less, and it is much easier to use. Marty
