Reuse syringe
Took a Neup shot a few minutes ago, last shot of this batch, last syringe. Come to find out they sold me 3 - 3ml and one 1ml. Neup shot is 1.6 ml. Soooo... to keep on schedule I did two shots of .8 ml using the same syringe. I wouldn't guess this is a real problem, shots were less than a minute apart, the syringe was not set down, the needle touched nothing other than me, and the Neup. I'm kinda paranoid about these things and would like to hear I won't catch some strange self infection. I kinda sound like toenail guy don't I?

If you’re doing something wrong you have company, James. I used to triple-dip a syringe into an insulin vial daily for years. For a while I was prescribed 115 units Lantus insulin and only had 50 unit syringes. It took three injections to get it all in, and I reused the syringe for this. I think the worst side effect from this is likely obsessive posting on internet forums.

Good luck with your treatment outcome-
