Fiasp, a Faster Acting Insulin

Fiasp is a faster actin insulin from NovoNordisk. Have any of you tried it? If so, what are your experiences with it?

"Adults with type 1 and type 2 can now choose Fiasp, which can be taken up to 20 minutes after starting a meal and still be effective. Fiasp (“fast-acting inisulin now available in US pharmacies. A quicker version of the mealtime insulin NovoLog, Fiasp was approved by the FDA for adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes last fall.
Notably, Fiasp is the first mealtime insulin without a pre-meal dosing recommendation – Fiasp can be taken as much as 20 minutes after starting a meal, while other injected mealtime insulins are best taken 20 minutes before eating. This flexibility is due to the faster onset and offset of this insulin. (It is still strongly recommended that users take Fiasp before the start of the meal when possible, but the option to take it up to 20 minutes later does add extra flexibility when necessary.) Depending on the amount taken, Fiasp begins lowering glucose in 15-20 minutes
