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.
These were used to replace the BD brand that I had always used before with no problem. Now they say that brand can't be shipped. What's up with that? These may work sometimrsor not. I never know! I've had to toss several away!.Will try another brand!
These are the only pen needles I could buy through Amazon according to them. I used to buy better needles from them. These have inconsistent diameters, making it almost impossible to get the insulin through. And ALL of them sting like the devil. I am going to the local Walmart.
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!!!
For some reason, the BD needles can't be shipped to me by Amazon. Weird, cuz it's not like I live in the boonies or anything. Anyway, I got these instead after years of the BD and they work just fine - zero problems and no difference in sensation etc. Don't hesitate about these if you are worried about quality or anything,
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?
My partner says these are spectacular. Easy in and little to no pain. He also says that this was consistent throughout the entire box. Other brands tend to have one or two in the mix that are not so perfect.
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
I have Type II Diabetes and the tips I usually use could not be shipped to my address for some unknown (to me) reason, so I purchased these. Big mistake. The tips bend easily and leak (not all of them, but losing expensive medicine is not good). Also, they are more painful to use.
