For Diabetes, Type 2 "I was prescribed Novolin N a year ago along with Trulicity. I was instructed to use the Novolin N when I was taking Prednisone for my asthma and nasal polyps. I totally forgot about the Novolin because at first, the Trulicity was keeping my numbers low. However, the past 6 months or so my numbers have been horrendous and my original endo was not seeing patients due to the pandemic. I went to see another doctor and he was just horrible. I started waking up to numbers like 350, 295 and 400 which is disturbing. Thankfully I found my Novolin N in the fridge and started taking as directed. My numbers came straight down. I was excited to see my fasting blood glucose of 167. I am happy with Novolin N"
For Diabetes, Type 2 "Regarding the broken vial, I dropped a vial of Novolog and it broke too. But glad I did, insurance would not cover and that is when I found out about Novolin which has worked well for me...at big cost savings."
For Diabetes, Type 2 "Novolin N is Much cheaper than Lantus. I have been on it for the last 4 months. No low sugar problems, but by numbers are MUCH BETTER than Lantus and I find that I have been taking less. I have a backup supply of Lantus that I need to use up and then goodbye Lantus. By the way, I tried the Novalin N on my own because my endocrinologist is not a fan. But after I discussed the numbers with him, he is in full agreement."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "Hi Novolin N has worked great for me . I use it to replace Lantus for one year now. I use it twice a day, morning and evening. Was taking 10 iu Lantus now take 20 iu novolin n. My doctor had no issue with this. I can't afford the crazy price of Lantus anymore John"
For Diabetes, Type 1 "I am not pleased with the company. On the morning of September 24, I accidentally dropped a bottle of Novolin N and the bottom broke out. I understand that it was my fault the bottle was dropped but being a diabetic for 31 years I know I have dropped other bottles. This is the first time I have ever had a bottle break. I called the company wanting them to understand that their product, which even children use, did not withstand a 4 foot drop onto a throw rug on a tiled kitchen floor. The lady I talked to did not even want to listen to the rest of the story. She heard I dropped the bottle and then she wanted to tell me that it was my fault. I get that..I dropped the bottle. But what about the safety issue for those who use their product?"
For Diabetes, Type 2 "Beware the Walmart generic Novolin N, just like most of Walmart's new line of exclusive generic versions, this one is terrible. I've had headaches, blurry vision, brain fog, abdominal swelling and despite my doc raising my dosage 3 times, no positive effect on my blood sugar levels, actually they appear to have gone up somehow. Don't get your generic meds from Walmart, if you have a choice."
