  • Publication number: 20160220759
    Abstract: A drug delivery device (1; 100; 200) comprising a housing (2; 102; 201, 202), a dose setting mechanism operable to set a dose to be delivered from a variable volume reservoir, and a dose delivery structure (60; 160; 260) activatable to expel a set dose. The dose setting mechanism comprises a dose indicating structure (40; 140; 240) for indicating a size of the set dose. The dose indicating structure (40; 140; 240) is coupled with the dose delivery structure (60; 160; 260) during expelling of the set dose and moved relative to the housing (2; 102; 201, 202) to a zero dose indicating position. The zero dose indicating position is a position which is fixed with respect to the housing (2; 102; 201, 202). The dose setting mechanism further comprises a dose setting structure (20; 120; 220) movable in a dose preparing direction relative to the housing (2; 102; 201, 202) to a dose prepared position to set a dose of a first size.
