Re: [IP] Symlin

 ok, i used the 3/10 needles becuase the dose is so small and could see the
barrel easier

 I started off 2 units before each meal or snack more than 20 carbs. - then took
insulin after done eating meal or snack.

 did this for a few days until it worked ok with stomach, and then after 3-4
days to a week increased it to 4, then 6 all the way up to 10

 for me, it really made me nausous so it took time for my body to adjust. I
didn't have issues with lows by doing this gradually.

So the pharmacy called, Symlin's approved and all, but now we're like  
"What kind of syringes do you want? Do you know what to start your  
dosage at? Did you not get instructions on how to use this?"

No. Nary a peep. I thought that the directions/dosages would be ON THE  

Jeeze!! OK, what syringes do you use, How much is it measured as?  
Units like insulin, or a completely different syringe?

Criminy, if this is how even a DOCTOR does this, I don't want to take  
this stuff!!! I'm actually angry right now.... what are the jerks at  
Bristol Park Medical Group THAT stupid?
