... Hello Forteo Users, I'm new to this list, but not Forteo. I've been using it for over 9 months. I've always had the larger pen and very short, fine needles; after a period of adaption, it's very easy to use.

... I get mine from Longs Pharmacy but I think they might have to special order them. I got the correct size needles from the hospital pharmacy also. You do want the short pen needles. ... (12 replies)
