Buying Needles In US

Can anyone please tell me if you purchase needles over the counter in the US? Thanks.

I believe you can pick them up at a pharmacy. I have seen them there. If not, you can get them online.

I have no idea. I just remember seeing needles while waiting on a prescription.

you can buy them at a pharmacy, you usually have to ask. They will tell you they dont sell them if you look like a heroin addict or look young but other than that your good.

You do not need a prescription for syringes or needles. The ones used for AAS are completely different than the ones used for diabetes or intraveneous drug use.

I picked up 24 3cc 21gauge 1 inch at Walgreens on Saturday, they had no 22g 1.5 inch, for $7. The pharmacy tech asked if I had a diabetes card and I flat out told him I do not one. You can always say that they are for HRT,true for me, or vitamin b12 shots.

Being fully legal they can be ordered over the internet without any risk correct?

getpinz.com or androusa.com i have used get pinz primarily for the last couple of years, very cheap and fast

Yes. We use a bunch of needles in the lab at work and the lab gets them online. And no, it’s not a medicinal lab.

I know wrestlers/boxers use them to pull the fluid out of their ears to prevent cauliflower-ear… when they have swelling…

you can always claim its for that if need be

or even that you use them for crafts :slight_smile:

You’d be surprised at what you can find at a Farmer’s Co-Op or Farm store where they sell veternary medicines for livestock too.

LOL, in Italy you can freely buy needles and syringe but need prescription for b12 :smiley:

Thanks guys

You need a prescription in a few states (CA included) but plenty of sites will ship to these places anyway.

Any WalMart pharmacy will sell them no questions asked.

I believe this applies mostly to insulin syringes.

I think it depends on the state also.

Getting them online is much easier. I’ve had Pharmacy staff refuse to sell them unless I produced a script for what I was using them for.
Check out ryvmed.com. You can get a box of 100 for about $10 + s/h
