Quote from gdubya on Injection question for those with experience thread started by DanmanBob
I'm 54. The doctor injected me in the office at .35. It hurt a little but not for long. I filled the prescription at a local pharmacy. The pharmacist asked if I was a diabetic. He suggested using the diabetic insulin needles. They don't hurt as much. In fact they're not very painful (like the snap of a rubber band to the flesh).
I've injected myself 6 times already @ .40ml. Lasts all night. You have to hit it at either 3 or 9 o'clock (this is very important). Stretch it out, watch, and avoid those little veins.
Give yourself 24 hours before the next shot. That's the schedule my physician told me to adhere to until the function returns.
