    Exclamation Insulin Needles

    I need to go pick up some insulin needles for my HCG , but I don't want to sound like a dumb ass when I go to the pharmacy. So does anyone know exactly what I need to ask for?

    just go in an say you want insulin syringes. they come in boxes of 50 and 100 and should be found in any pharmacy.

    give them the eye if they look at you funny because anyone is allowed to purchase them legally.

    Just buy some online, it saves you the pressure of having to answer to "Pharmacist Numbnuts."

    PM me if need any help.

    Insulin syringes usually range from 27-31 gauge. I prefer the 30 or 31 since its less painfull. You also have a choice of a long or short needle, again I go with the short one since its less painfull. They come in boxes of 50 or 100, but you can also get them in packs of 10. They will also ask you what unit size you want, they come in 30, 50, and 100 Units sizes. Good luck.

    international units is how insulin is measured not in mg
    Insulin usually runs 10 units per ml but you need to check the bottle

    Like powerlifter already mentioned, insulin is measured in I.U not mg. So 100 units = 1ml = 1cc. When I use Pregnyl HCG that is 1500 i.u per ml and I want to use say 500i.u pers shot, I load up a U100 syringe to 33units.
