I just used the lancets that came with the pen. I had bought some generic brand that were 25 guage b/c I remember somebody telling me that was a good size, and they were supposed to be “universal” and fit in any of the pens, but they didn’t fit the pen that I bought. The lancets that came with the pen were much, much thinner, so it took a few tries to get enough blood (changing the setting each time). I’m still going to try to find one that it a little thicker and that will fit our pen, so we only have to poke her one time next time.
