I know terbutaline is usually given SC in the deltoid. Can It be safely given in other areas such as SC in the thigh?

In brief: If it is given

where a large muscle mass is present or the circulation to the subcutaneous tissue is interfered with by FATTY tissue the absorbtion might be delayed as well as the dose actually "delivered" be reduced.
ANSWER YES BUT......not as effective My Opinion Only Hope it's helpful
