hello

I'm new to giving vivitrol injection. I follow the directions, but when I inject the syringe, the medication gets clogged. I take out the needle/syringe, change needles and try a second time and it usually works. has anyone had this problem?

I really don't know what i'm doing wrong. my supervisor is not a nurse, so I have no one to problem solve with.

thank you :)

At my job they come prefilled in the syringes. Be sure you’re injecting them not to deep in the buttocks tissue because it can cause abscesses in the patient which I have seen before. Just follow the directions on the pack and you should be good.
