T Nation

Leftover T?

I am about to embark on T treatments for hypogonadism through the VA. It sounds like they are going to send me a vial that is equivalent to 2 weekly injections, but only 1 sharp. Im supposed to throw the other half out. WTF?

That seems really awkward, and also (yes, I know- VA medical is weird sometimes) expensive on the part of others. What do any of you vets that might receive treatment for this from VA do?

Thanks,

CAS

Pleases provide more info about:

  • your T protocol
  • your pre TRT labs
  • age, weight, waist
  • health conditions and medications, Rx and OTC
  • how/when did low-T begin

Please read these stickies:

  • advice for new guys
  • things that damage your hormones
  • protocol for injections
  • is it a rubber stopper vial or glass ampule that you break?

You can get insulin syringes without a prescription in most USA jurisdictions and Canada.
You can inject with #29 1/2" 0.5ml [50iu] syringes. ~$14 per 100 at USA Walmart/Sam’s for Relion house brand.

Most get 10ml multi-dose vials that last a long time. Easier to handle than a tiny vial.
