No one will take mine! :( They said to buy sharp box and use the sticker for the trash man.... yeah i'm not doing that lol.... my husband has been breaking the needles in the med vials... so far it's working good... so I might be able to throw them away... since now no one can get hurt or try to reuse.

I also ran into this issue the dr.s office said no and they dont give sharp containers just scripts went to several pharmacies even tho they didnt have my horomone just to see if they knew how to dispose and they dont offer sharps either wtf.....going to get it refilled tomorrow at the hospital where the horomone is available hope they can help me better because everyone else just said keep them in a thick plastic container and throw them away in regular trash which I just dont see as being safe or legal.....what the hell why is this even something that should have had to been asked when drugs are such an issue and accidental stickings etc. I dont have anything to give but still

No joke!! I asked if my insurance would pay for more boxes and they said no.... my insurance doesn't cover any boxes... just the needles and script (lucky for me they cover the needles.... thats almost $50.00 alone) but they should give you advice on how to dispose of them properly. I don't want them getting in the wrong hands... i'm glad my husband found a way to rip the needle off without touching it... and it's stuck in the vial... still won't throw away my lovenox needles in the trash, that feature may be on them but I hate to say it, if people need a needle bad enough they will figure a way.... sad.... i'm not worried about someone getting cut on them, as more so as someone trying to reuse them....

that was my advice sadly just put them in thick plastic of some kind and throw it away.....my poor trash people cant even imagine the fear of if an accident happened ....hell the homeless here dont even touch drugs usually its kinda nice but they do seasonal begging and have to be licensed to do so but its sad they may know a recycling plant that would safely take them....I am rather peeved about it and it makes me wonder all those times I have had do pull dogs and such out of dumpsters or got in myself to get the pup what risk I was in if this is how my area disposes of needles and clearly its not that uncommon if your in the same position

I think they should offer some type of disposing them properly.... so kids, pets and well people looking for used needles can't get a hold of them.... i'm going to ask my doctor on Monday before I throw them out.
