    EXACTLY which needles for b12?

    I've read on here a bunch to use a slin needle for b12... but I have no idea what a slin needle is. I'm looking at AR's site, for instance, and I see needles measured by length and G(uage?)

    What's the right syringe/ needle?

    25+ gauge syringe about 1-1.5 inch in length depending on where you poking yourself...

    get a 27-29 gauge. Slin needles are usually 1/2-5/8 inches long.

    uh... ok...

    1/2-5/8.... 1-1.5...

    I thought people were all taking b12 more or less the same way... I guess I need to take a step back... what's the preferred way, and corresponding length needle.

    Also, as long as I'm placing the order, do I need anything else? filter or whatnot? I've already got the human grade b12.

    oh, and are smaller guages bigger, or the other way around?

    You could do that too. Some people do subq on its own. Others do it IM with gear and use the b-12 to cut down on the pain. Depends on what your doing, you didn't say what your reasons for using b-12 were...

    sorry... b12 only... various health and well being reasons based on what I've read I'm pretty sure I'm deficient.

    ... no gear... just the b12

    I used slin needles, obviously subq...I was using b-12 only, no gear or anything. It was real easy to get the slin spikes, just got them at Wal-Mart, otc. Get some alcohol pads, too, then you should be good to hook.
