Osteoporosis Message Board

Osteoporosis Board Index

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 inject the Forteo in the inner surface of alternate knees---there seems to be a 'dull spot' with diminished sensation.
I use the alcohol wipe, blow on the skin, push the skin together somewhat tolessen the surface tension, then slide the needle in at a sharp angle. I do this while watching television, so I'm somewhat distracted.
I figure the small pain is better than the larger pains of the osteoporosis.
I've always received three pens in a shipment, being told it saved money. My provider was Medco, now it's CVS Caremark; both gave excellent service.
