Do all things that are vectored into the body by intramuscular injection, do you have to have a prescription to obtain it even if the substance itself is not controlled? in this case, vitamin c. 
And if you don't have to have a prescription for it, where can you buy both the injection supplies and the vitamin c intended for that use?

I'm not sure whether or not you need a presciption for Vitamin C but I'm sure our more knowledgeable members can help. Regarding the syringes needed for injections, you can get those at your local pharmacy. They are not expensive at all. You will want to get a 25 gauge, 1 inch needle.

Injectable substances typically require a prescription. Naturopathic physicians can prescribe injectable vitamins and can also point you to a local compounding pharmacy who can fill the prescription. I get needles & syringes from my naturopathic physician for injectable stuff he prescribes (such as Vitamin B12).
