needle size

what size needle would you use? ## Due to the depths of the muscle, the length of the needle will vary, depending on if you are administering it to a child, or an adult man, or woman. Therefore, it can range from 5/8ths of an inch, up to 1 1/2inches. What type has the doctor prescribed?

what size needle would you use to give prolixin inj. IM? ## Hi Tammy, According to the prescribing label for this medication, "Prolixin Decanoate (Fluphenazine Decanoate Injection) may be given intramuscularly or subcutaneously. A dry syringe and needle of at least 21 gauge should be used. Use of a wet needle or syringe may cause the solution to become cloudy." My reference for this information is linked below: NOTE: I would recommend reviewing the entire article in the link if this is your first time using this medication. I hope this info helps!
