I have been taking Byetta for approx. 1-1/2 years and this last time the pharmacist suggested using the nano needles (quite small and short). I like them much better than any of the others I've tried, but I feel that I don't seem to be having the same fullness effect after my shots. I was wondering if anyone else had tried them and if they had any similar effects.
I think the nano needles bend very easily. sometimes I look at it and it is bent when in the pen. I have the same concern - the pens last longer when I use the nanos! So I went back to the slightly larger 31 gauge 5/16. Good luck. And watch those needles!
I love the Nanos. No issues with bending any of them and when I inject my leg it doesn't seem to nail the nerves as bad. The Mini's seem to go in to deep for the leg. Not much recent activity on this site besides me.
