Default My Walmart quit selling relion syringes

My Walmart quit selling Relion syringes -They do still offer BD's for 34 bucks a box
Anyone else have this problem or is it just my Wallyworld ?
I don't need a perscription in this state to purchase them any one know of a good online place to get some U100 3/10 cc 29ga with 1/2 needles and 1/2 unit marks would be a bonus but not nessesary
Thanks all
Dogg

Default Re: My Walmart quit selling relion syringes

There was a time that my area Walmarts would not sell me a box of a 100 syringes without a prescription but would give me a bag of 10 . when i visited my mom in Reno i would stock up because they did not have that policy . Well my Walmart changed their policy and i could buy a box of a 100.

Now i just bought a box about a month ago with no problem . I am surprised that they are not selling there brand of syringes with insulin and testing equipment . That seems odd . Did they give a reason why ?

I was in your boat with not selling me a box of a 100 and i looked around for alternatives but since i went to reno twice a year i just stocked up there

there was members who did buy online some people did not like the relion syringes

They were willing to sell me the Relion 31ga 5/16 syringes but told me they did not and are not in the future going to stock the 29ga 1/2 syringes due to them being a favorite of junkies which I can sorta believe because of the high death count with these dumb kids around here in Ohio ---But as I stated before we are not required to have a perscription for the syringes just the Insulin -Seems kind backwards to me but then again who am I to dissagree with the laws of the state
Sorry I should have read my start post I should have been clearer as to what Walmart still had available
Thanks
Dogg

We had the same thing happen at our Walmart in FL. They told me they no longer carried the syringes, so I asked them if they would special order 4 boxes and they did.
