Hello.

I found a great website...

www.blueskydrugs.com

I order my insulin through them at only $41.00 per vial of Novolog. At CVS, it is around $100.00 per vial. Great savings!

Thanks for the tip. We may lose our health insurance and they have great prices. Cindy

Use caution using companies outside the USA.

The FDA can stop shipments and prevent them from coming thru customs. Also check out Sams Club and Costco Warehouse Stores ( dont have to join to use them )

i don't believe this is true as long as there is a script and it is not illegal to buy here in the states than they can't do that, i have been purchasing my insulin from Canada and have never had any problems as well as many who are here on this board. the only thing the FDA has pressure from is from the big pharma's who want to keep their huge profits here in the states i mean who wouldn't want to make everyone pay 120 for humalog, and why would i if i can walk across an imaginary line and buy it for 35 dollars. bewary of scare tactics.




The problem with for profit health care is that a man will pay anything he can to stay alive.

Wow, I just saw that fly right over his head!!!! LOL, I wonder if they noticed that most if not all of the insulin that we buy in the US is actually mfr. in other countries...where Canada probably buys theirs...

I haven't had insurance for years, & have been on insulin 24! I buy Novolin R & N at Walmart for $23 each, & ReLion (Walmart brand) blood test strips for $38 for a box of 100. Their ReLion syringes are pretty inexpensive, too -- $12 for a box of 100 vs. $35 for BD brand (last I checked several yrs ago).

On the other hand, if you're not willing to switch from an insulin such Humalog or Lantus, you'll be paying $108 per bottle for those (even at Walmart).

I've found that paying out-of-pocket for the less expensive stuff is more economical than paying for insurance plus co-pays!!

Hope this helps!
