A subcutaneous injection is a method of administering medication. Subcutaneous means under the skin.
In this type of injection, a short needle is used to inject a drug into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle. Medication given this way is usually absorbed more slowly than if injected into a vein, sometimes over a period of 24 hours.
Examples of medications typically administered via Sub-Q: HCG, CJC / Ipamorelin, Sermorelin
An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles. This allows the medication to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly. You may have received an intramuscular injection at a doctor’s office the last time you got a vaccine, like the flu shot.
Examples of medications typically administered via IM: Testosterone, Vitamins, Glutathione
Disposal rules and regulations vary across states and localities. Check your State’s regulations for safe disposal.
