Sterile products are a different story. But, most compounding pharmacists use the same or similar preservatives that the manufacturers do, so I guess use your own judgement at your own risk. As I have said before though, I would definetly not use a large vial (20 or 30 ml)
for a long period of time. More small vials would be much safer in terms of maintaining sterility.
Yes, we discussed this before.
That 30ml vial, that is available from compounding pharmacy, would last too long.
With so many needle penetrations it would loose its seal,
specially with guys insisting on using large needles.
30ml * 200mg/ml=6000mg
150mg/week E2D schedule
