    Hello -

    I am sure someone at some point has posted about this before, so sorry if you are having to repeat yourselves!

    I have recently changed my long acting insulin and have 5 un-used Levemir pre-filled pens, I was wondering is there anywhere I can donate these? Any charities that need them? I am not sure if there is such a thing? I am sure there are probably reasons why this doesn't happen, just seems a shame to throw them away.

    Thanks,
    Laura.

    And if Juicyjs suggestion doesn't work for some reason you could look into Insulin for Life, I've donated unused insulin through them.
