Finally stopped being a chicken and tried the injection - after 4+ years of unsuccessfully messing with oral meds, Muse, etc.

The injection didn't work at the doctor's office, But I filled the tri-mix RX and did it at home with unbelievable results.

.15 took effect within 10 minutes, and lasted about an hour. Sure wish I would have listened to the advice from this board earlier!

The syringe is an Easy Touch 1cc 31G 5/16" short needle. I purchased an Inject Ease auto injector which does not seem to fit.

Can someone advise me on where to purchase either the proper auto injector, or different syringes, or both?

Do I need a prescription for the syringes? I don't have a written one as it was called in to the local lab.

I was also instructed to rotate sides for each injection, but does this have to be strictly done each time?

Thanks in advance for any help-

It sure is nice to be back! Isn,t it. Can't help with the auto inject system. After a couple of times you my find that doing it yourself is easy. I do think it is important to switch sides and move Ft to back as well. The idea is not to hot the same spot. Have fun with the new toy. Just for info there are some some good tips at Franktalk.org

Hi Dw2468,

Its amazing how well Trimix works

You will need to pick up BD syringes to match up with the BD Inject-Ease. I use the BD Ultra fines, the length is adjustable with the inject-ease via the changeable sleeves so you can fine tune the exact length you need
