1. Take close to bed time.
2. Take two Aleve (naproxen sodium) an hour before injection.
3. At that same time, take needle out of fridge and set on counter.
4. After injection, rub area hard for like 30 seconds.
5. Use icepack after if you have pain.
My other personal reccomendation is to inject fast. After fooling with slow, fast, and everything inbetween, I think it ends up causing the least pain. I poke, grab the plunger, and just do it.
Would happy to share anything else, just let me know.
