Small – not quite half an inch.  I set a regular sewing needle beside it for comparison.  Then I got to looking, and thought that not only is the needle short, but the diameter looks about like a strand of thread.

Sure enough, the tip of the needle on the syringe fits into the eye of my sewing needle:

  1. Lol, Wren. Good to head as I’ll be starting my Enbrel injections on Wednesday. Although I think I’ll be getting the SureClick needles. Will let you know how those go.

  2. They really are tiny. 🙂

    The old ones used to have a much bigger and more annoying syringe, though the needle itself was still small. I like the new version much better.
