Hey Fellow Needler,

Welcome to better living through chemicals!!! I don't know how long you have used injections but don't be afraid to experiment with the dosage. I use Trimix and Viagra (from ADC) very successfully. 50 mg Viagra, wait half an hour then shoot .04 ml Trimix works great for me. I had to do a lot of experimenting to get it right and not have any pain. I use the Viagra so that I won't have to use so much Trimix. I believe that less is better when injecting my tender spot.

Say hi to Bluebird for me if you see her...
