    needle size for methotrexate injection

    I have rheumatoid arthritis, and am needle phobic (yuk-yuk, wrong disease to have!).

     

    I wonder if I can use 30 gauge "diabetic" needles to inject methotrexate weekly... or if there is a difference between the viscosity of insulin and methotrexate that prevents me from using the 30 gauge insulin needle for this purpose.

    I am currently using BD 1ml 27G 1/2 latex free syringe to inject 25mg/1.0ml/100U methotrexate. 

    w/thanks,

    jane
