RE: [IP] Re: Skin Prep for Insertion site

You might try ebay.  I just sold some IV Prep through it.  (Had I known
you needed them I would have just sent them to you.)  I don't know what
your exact income situation is but I just checked the MiniMed store and
the IV Prep doesn't seem that expensive.  It's $12 for 50.  Perhaps your
source is overcharging you and you could either order directly from
MiniMed, or from a local medical supply pharmacy.
