Re: [IP] Symlin

I have the BD Ultra-Fine II syringes in the 3/10 cc size with 1/2 unit 
markings - because I started on 2.5 units of Symlin and got sick to my 
stomach. Now I take 10 units and don't get sick (usually). 10 units is 
60 mcg. Symlin is very confusing at first. Do not mix with insulin.
