Question Syringe~~Where to get locally?

I need 1 with needle...a friend of mine use to supply me whenever I was in need...but he been MIA these days....went to CVS, Rite aid....they ask for prescription...

This is for something else not for spot treatment for algae in planted tank...Which I dont have and not to eject drug.

Any Idea?

Cheers!!!

Crack house?
In all seriousness though you will not likely be able to get one without a prescription. I'd check medical supply companies online and try to order one

Without a script the only thing that comes to mind is the bigger ones used for injecting turkeys with spice prior to frying.

Syringe~~Where to get locally?

Try looking for a sterile syringe which is used for rinsing mouthes. It has measurements and a plastic 'needle'

I'm also looking for one.

I can provide you with one that has the actual needle. If you're not in a rush, I can drop it off this Friday night or definitely sunday

CVS and any pharmacy have oral syringes, which have the plastic end. If you're looking for one with a metal needle for injections, good luck finding one without a prescription! Be careful who you ask, or you'll be mistaken for a junkie! :p

I got a 10 pack of syringes that diabetics use... no prescription necessary. You're welcome to a few of mine if you'd like.

In NYC you are allowed to buy a twenty pack of insulin needles with out a script. They are narrow gauge needles.
