Hello..
Well we suggest to use the pen for single use...we don't suggest multiple user with the single needle..yes you can do that ..you can just change the needle and use the pen..no harm in that. ...the only reason behind not using same needle is not to acquire any sort of infection...yes it's very convenient to use it than insulin syringe...and the side effects are local like site abscess which are very rare with pen...thank you
