Hey there all! I'm just curious to find out how much others are taking in each dosage of Symlin at the meals... I am using the pen and injecting 60 mcg.

So how much are you taking and what is your method of delivery?

I need some help with Symlin dosing. I've been on Symlin about a month. No problems, but no substantial results either. I'm doing 45 before eating, and bolus at same time 50% of what my bolus wizard tells me. Maybe I should do Symlin before meal then not bolus until 30 minutes after eating? What's been working for you?

I am now doing 120 cgm before meals. I used 60 for several months but the effect wore off, or so I thought. The symlin people say it doesn't wear off. I am now using just about the right amount of insulin up fron, maybe a little less. I am still doing a little more after 1 1/2 hours.
