The Most Complicated Drug

So here is the picture of Menopur. To start off, I am supposed to be taking three vials of powdered "stuff." Marc says it's lyophilized compound of (this is from the product information in the box), get this, "the urine of postmenopausal women, which has undergone additional steps for purification." I would hope so. Anyway, the three vials each need to be reconstituted with 1 ml of saline solution, one at a time, in the big syringe. Hallelujah this is not the needle that's being stuck in me. The needle being used is the smaller one, still wrapped. So it's the same size as the subcutaneous Gonal-F and Lupron needles. That was great news to me, as I had a small panic attack looking at the size of that needle!
