First off, I have to say, that injecting the Menopur is not the problem. It hasnt burned at all going in. YET. My problem is the drawing up. Last night I used the Q-caps. I had problems getting the exact amount of diluent in the syringe. The stopper inside, I felt like kept moving, which made it difficult to get the exact 1cc of diluent.
Well tonight, I decided to use the regular needles. I got the 1cc of diluent drawn up with no problem. Then I injected the diluent into the powder. The powder dissolved, but the so did the rest of the liquid. Wierdest thing!!! I tried drawing up what little liquid was in there and it was basically a tiny drop. There was no way that was enough of the meds to inject. I thought maybe there was a clog in the needle but there wasnt. I didnt know what else to do. So I started over completely with new vials and used the Q-caps. Then everything went smoothly. But I am out 2 vials of powder. Which is alot of moolah. I called the pharmacy and talked to the tech and she said that she has heard of that happening and suggested I call the manufacturer. There might have been a problem with the actual vial or powder. I put in a call to Ferring and am waiting for a call back. Hoping for a reimbursement but who knows.
Anyone else had similar problems????
