    Transfer Cyp from syringe to sterile vial.

    At my compounding pharmacy they do not give me a vial of cyp, what I get is preloaded syringes......
    This is a pain! when I asked them to split the dosages so that I could inject 2 times a week. They said sure and then they almost doubled my prescription cost. They said it was because they charge by/for each syringe.

    My question is if I buy a sterile vial can I just put the cyp from the syringes into the vial. That way I could just draw what I needed instead of having to be careful to stop injecting at the perfect mark on syringe so that I dont inject too much. changing needles without contaminating the cyp is a real pain.

    Anyone have any thought or suggestion on this?

    Would work just fine. For the future, can you not get a script from your DR to fill at a pharmacy like costco? I would be pissed if in your situation, such an inconvenience.

    I have explored the option of getting the cyp at another pharmacy but it is still cheaper.... a lot cheaper at the compounding pharmacy.

    I guess my next question would be How long would the cyp be good for after moving it to the vial? I mean would it effect its shelf life (expiration)?

    No compromise on shelf life. Try to position syringe penetrations as far away from each other do you don't get little pieces of rubber stopper in your juice.

    How much are you paying? My 10ml (200mg per ml) vial of Watson Test-Cyp from Costco is only $65 (non members price). Just finished my 1st vial yesterday, lasted 6.5 months :-)

    Why not just transfer half of it directly into another syringe and skip the vial? One less step, and needle.

    Good idea Rusty.

    Its more about getting the rest of my prescriptions also. The price of my HCG would be double at the new pharmacy and it comes already constituted...... think i will just pay a couple bucks and buy a vial. Where I live is really crazy about doctor/pharmacy shopping! Think I will just keep it simple.

    My doc now uses a new in state pharmacy for all TRT scripts. All my meds are covered by insurance except hcg . So I ordered my hcg Monday. $62 for only a months worth. I opened up my package today and it was 8 pre filled syringes with hcg and B12 mixed with it. I called the pharmacy wanting to know what's up and they said that is how the doctor calls it in, because its easier and more convent. Well BULLSHIT!!!!
    I've been on 250iu mwf for 5 months now I have to use as prescribed which is 600iu twice a week.
    Was thinking about putting it all in a sterile vial but wasn't sure if it would be alright? Sorry to hijack

    No big deal VTX! I agree that is bs! Sorry I cant offer any help on the subject. When they shipped it to you was it chilled or at room temp?

    What I've been doing with my cyp is just injecting half on sunday change the needle and other half on wed. Maybe you could try that unless its in insulin syringe.

    600iu I thought if you inject more than 500 in 24 hours you run risk of desensitizing .

    It was shipped with 2 freezer packs and in some type of thick wool wrap. It was still cold when I opened it. Dr. Wants to keep the boys producing baby juice... As for desensitizing leydig cells well that's up for debate. There are extremely high doses of hcg used for fertility. 1200 iu a week really isn't that much.
