From what I understand, yes, and no.
Diabetics need insulin and people highly allergic to stuff need epipens. Both, of course, use a "syringe".
I think the line is drawn with the diagnosis being life threatening or not.
I have asked my doc for needles before, and he wasn't comfortable with that (2nd month). I will bring it up again once blood work comes back a-ok the 3rd(?) time and maybe there will be more of a trust relationship built.
If he's still not willing to do that by then, he will still transfer the prescription to a clinic within walking distance that I will be able to split shots much easier (due to my schedule, I can only get 1 shot) and only see the original doctor every four or so months for routine blood work.
This is the best option here, as I've read on another forum someone receiving 125mg every 2-4 weeks; the doctor has worked with me a lot more, and truly, it's due to the information that I passed on from reading some of your posts.
