Default Insulin needle reuse

Can you reuse the insulin needles 2x safely before discarding for peptides and gh?

I think a general rule with needles is never re-use

Type 1 diabetic here. I have to take insulin shots every day. In a perfect world you would not reuse insulin needles after 1 use. However that's not so cost effective. I've used needles multiple times. The problem is after repeated use the lubrication that helps guide the needle into the skin starts to wear off which can make injections painful.

You can do it, its not recommended, but if you have to be judicious.

And obviously never share needles with anyone else. Strictly mean reusing for personal use.
