Title: Only have 2 needles and 4 doses....
Post by BMoneeTheMoneeMan on Jan 13th, 2005, 9:40pm
How bad is it to use a needle more then 1 time for the same person?  The needle will only be used for a few days anyway, but how bad is that?
Thanks,
BMonee

It's not the most sanitary thing to do but I use mine (the statdose syringes) multiple times if I am able to stretch the trex....

USe Alcohol to clean the tip

Agree with E-Doub.  In a pinch just try to make certain you dab it with alcohol or such before reuse.  

I have done it myself once when I was out of town.  Had 2 vials and one needle.

Sounds risky to me. Why not just get ahold of your doc and tell them you need more needles ??

I just talked to my pharmacist and she told me that to use a needle more then 1 time is ok, but it gets more dull as you use it.  So she said that because of the dull needle, it will hurt substantially more then a fresh needle.
I HATE needles....but I love them when they have Trex in them!!
Thanks and PF wishes
