Multi_use Vials


Does anyone have any techniques or hints to help get those last 1-2 shots out of a multi-use vials?

I use the 29g insulin needles and I find it hard to get those last few shots loaded.

Thanks in advance.


Just takes a little practice. Try tilting the vial to one side and putting your needle in at a steep angle. Then withdraw until it's just piercing the stopper. You should be able to get all but the last few drops...and that's not going to make an appreciable difference in your dosing. Losing tens of milligrams once every few weeks is no big deal.


I'll try that.

I think its mostly just practice when those bottles get a little empty.
