    Believe me they are multi use. Just don’t wind it on after jabbing your finger. Or were you expressing your preference?

    I'm another Fastclix user - I change a drum when all 6 lancets are finally blunt. I bought a box of 200 drums nearly six years ago and I've not emptied it yet...

    ETA This is a frequently asked question and there a number of other threads from over the years offering various opinions!
