[IP] Re: Syringes and Cipro

 As in my post I stated that I purchased the syringes and Cipro generic from

If you have a local Costco store, or a Walmarts, try their pharmacies, as
as some of the online sources.  I've found Costco in particular, to be less
costly for the BD syringes, though I don't recall now exactly what it was,
that's been some time, what with being on the pump now.

>One thing I wont do is go into a Walmart even if they were giving it away.>

Also, I recall that the monoject syringes were substantially less costly
BD, and there are other brands that are also even less costly than either of
those two major brands.  Look around, especially at online sources.
 >All other syringes are too painful to use<

As to the Cipro, that's a prescription only drug.  If you got it from
other than a pharmacy that requires a doctors prescription, then I'd guess
there's a strong chance you got something other than the antibiotic,
>I don't know but RITE AIDE PHARMACY look like a real pharmacy<

  Ciprofloxacin (that's the correct generic name). Remember as well, that as
