Thanks for all the great advice so far. I've returned from a holiday in Spain, where I obtained ampoules of Megamilbedoce (hydroxocobalamin) and have been self injecting every 2nd day to address neurological symptoms. I've got a couple of questions:
1. Each ampoule contains 10,000 micrograms in 2ml and the dose I was having at the GP was 1mg/1ml. This means that essentially I'm injecting a small amount of an ampoule each time - the dose is much more concentrated that what we normally get in the UK. I'm ok with that, and have consulted the BNF, but how do people manage the ampoule doing so many doses? I'm currently filling a number of syringes at once but have heard varying opinions on this.
2. It's hard to SI a smaller amount of fluid. Any tips?
3. The pharmacist recommended a 3 part syringe manufactured by ICO (it's an ICO plus3), which has a painless needle. I have indeed found this to be mostly painless - have others used this needle? Any reasons not to use this needle?
Thanks for any tips you might have!
