What many diabetics donít know: you can buy inexpensive, over-the-counter insulin in U.S.

Important information about insulin cost and availability comes from a retired FDA scientist who reviewed several modern insulin treatments for diabetes.

Inexpensive, safe and effective insulin is available for purchase in the U.S. over the counter without a prescription.

Insulin prices have been skyrocketing, and diabetic patients are said to sometimes ration their prescription insulin as a result.
And thatís the important part amid the concern over cost: the ďoldĒ insulin is widely available over the counter for a fraction of the cost of the ďnewerĒ insulin.

Some patients already know this inside secret. Human insulin is available over the counter in every state except Indiana, according to Medscape.

Medscape notes Walmart sells its own brand of over the counter insulin, ReliOn (made by Novo Nordisk) for approximately $25 for a 10 mL vial.

Other over the counter human insulins, says Medscape, sold at other pharmacy chains, run approximately $152-$163 for a 10-mL vials [Novolin (Novo Nordisk) or Humulin (Eli Lilly).

Thatís considerably less expensive than newer, prescription insulin analogs such as lispro (Humalog, Eli Lilly), aspart (Novolog, Novo Nordisk), and glargine (Lantus, Sanofi), according to Medscape. The medical publication conducted a survey and estimates Walmart sells 18,000 vials of over the counter insulin daily.
Funny how I never saw this information from haters of "Big Pharma", but found it randomly, browsing through PJMedia's Instapundit (which I do a few times a day). While I realize that some sharing the wild claims about "Big Pharma" monopolizing insulin and jacking up the price do so in good faith, trusting haters who don't deserve that trust, not all lies are false information. Some lies are in the form of withholding information that contradicts a false narrative
