  1. 18 gauge for trt


    Welppp went to walgreens to get my trt.....test cyp...they only had 18gauge or 25 gauge....nothing in between...so i got the 18 because i had 25 before nd couldnt draw the cyp....how ****ed am i?


  2. I draw up with an 18 but inject with a 25. Sometimes Iíll inject with a 22-23. The 18 will leave a nice hole which will probably allow a good amount of the test to come back out.

  3. Yikes....the guy at walgreens said these ones cant switch needles

  4. I draw and inject with a 25 g 5/8 IM to glutes. 18 g is a freakiní HARPOON!!
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    Go back and buy more should only be about $0.50 each only buy a few of the 25 g one inch or 5/8 not the 1 1/2. I usually buy bulk from eastern medical I buy a box of 25g one inch syringes and a box of 18-20 gauge single use needles.
    Before pulling the syringe out of the plastic unscrew the needle and leave in the plastic, take the 18 or 20 gauge needle and draw the dose than replace with the 25 gauge needle than insert into chosen muscle.

  10. If they are luer lock syringes (twist on), yes, you can change the needles. Never saw a syringe with a fixed 18ga needle (not saying they don't exist tho).
    You can buy 25ga needles and put them on the syringe after drawing with the 18ga needle. You can also draw and inject with just a 25ga needle, the draw being slightly slower. I actually draw and inject with 29ga 1/2" insulin needles, but it is a damn slow draw. Luckily, I just have to draw .25mL.

  11. Ouch!

  12. 18g. That is a drinking straw! I use 28g, 1 inch, back filling with 18g.
    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

  14. 18g, Imagine you have to inject daily with NPP -or something.

    That's weird, iv drawn with a slin pin before, not easy but still, 25 should be no problem

    I pinned with 30g Test/e in the past, LOL. Trick is:
    -heat the vial/ampule in hot water
    -back fill with another syringe
    -inject in delts

    Nowadays I use 28g, same procedure.

  22. 18 gauge for trt


    Wow I can't even imagine pinning with an 18 and I've even used 21s when I had to lol. No way id stick an 18 though.

    Now I draw with 18 and inject with 25 or 23 depending on which one I can get since they're free lol.

  23. Iíve been drawing and injecting with a 21g for years but lately iíve noticed the pain to a greater degree; this thread is making me want to go get a different gauge needle for injecting! I usually pin in my quads btw if that makes any difference.

  24. I've pinned pretty much anywhere thats convenient. Delts, quads, glutes, vmo even. My preference is 25g in the medial delt. Currently doing 23g in the VL. I don't like quads because I always seem to bleed and bruise worse there compared to delt and vmo.

  25. If your having trouble drawing with a 25g let what ever it is your taking sit in a cup of hot water then draw, let the solution cool in the 25g then pin.
