Did you know that if you slip the plastic finger grip off the syringe it takes up 25% less room in the sharps container, great for the small travelling ones.

Downside is the supplier keeps asking me if I need a new sharps bin as their records obviously show mine should be full.

I have to deposit a full sharps bin and collect a new empty one from the clinic. I thought that was what everyone had to do! :shock:

    I don't have that drug but I do use prefilled syringes of Heparin. I have one of the smallish boxes.

    When that is full hubby has to take it to the Health Centre and get a new one.

    The med delivery company deliver and collect mine.

    To get my injections I have to ring the hospital for a monthly prescription- then when it arrives at my house I have to take it to the pharmacy- they have to order it- and then I go back to the pharmacy a week later and collect it! It seems like I'm forever ringing for the script or delivering it or collecting it!!!

    My hospital uses the Healthcare at Home service. They delivered enbrel when I took it, now they deliver humira and sharps boxes. They take away the full ones, too. DD
