A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Ultra Fine diabetic needles and syringes are used for injecting insulin as part of daily insulin management. These ultra fine needles are especially slim and with a fine tip to make it for easy injection as well as less trauma and irritation to the skin. Ultra fine diabetic insulin syringes are a popular choice for diabetics who choose to administer insulin in the traditional manner with vial and syringe.
Ultra fine needles are to be used in the same way any insulin syringe is used when self-administering insulin. The abdomen is the most common injection site for insulin, but your physician may have instructed you to use another common site like, the outer thigh, hips, upper buttocks, or lower back. Wherever you are injecting yourself with diabetic insulin syringes, make sure the area is entirely clean and dry before preparing your ultra fine needle.
Try to use the same general injection area at the same time of each day, but it is recommended to rotate 1 to 1.5” away from the last injection site each time, to reduce irritation.
The active ingredient in Slynd and Slynd generic is Drospirenone.
Those who buy needles and syringes for self-administration of insulin should only use injection sites on the front of their body to ensure good injection technique and cleanliness. Some diabetics find it helpful to keep a daily record of injection sites used.
Check for air bubbles in the syringe before injecting insulin. Air bubbles are not a health risk but can reduce the amount of insulin in the syringe and prevent you from getting an accurate dosage. Always replace the cap on diabetic insulin syringes and dispose of them in a responsible manner.
There is no possibility of interactive risks with medications or supplements based on the use of diabetic insulin syringes themselves. However, a patient should discuss the use of insulin with their physician and make them aware of any other medications or supplements they are taking before beginning to use any type of insulin or proceed to buy needles and syringes.
Side effects related to the use of diabetic insulin syringes are uncommon, but some people may experience mild pain, bruising of the skin, or skin irritation at the injection site. If any of these symptoms are pronounced and / or occur repeatedly you should speak to your doctor.
