To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these because Amazon would not ship the BD needles to me for some reason I do not know why these are the only ones I could get just like some of the other reviewer‘s they are not sharp enough I have had to throw several out because they would not let the insulin through and I have not seen this mentioned but they do not come off the pen like the others do you have to take the cap off and twist them off and then stick it in the lid which is an extra step and also an easy way to get stuck! Several times the insulin has just come out and dropped down because it won’t go into my skin because the needle wasn’t piercing it good please let us purchase BD needles again!!!
At first use these seemed fine, but after a while I started noticing that it started to hurt to insert the needle tip into my skin. I have not EVER had this problem with others I've used. It's almost like the needles are not sharp or pointed enough to penetrate my skin. Grant you I've been giving myself a shot of insulin every day, but I do alternate spots on my belly, arms and legs so I don't believe that is the problem. Maybe I got a bad box?
I don't know what happened but I only received 50 pcs instead of 100. I was not satisfied as I thought this to be a great price and it saved me from having to go to Walmart and get some, but not getting the full order I might as well went to Walmart. Yes Amazon took care of the issue but I was still disappointed
