Reviews for Insulin regular

ReliOn/Novolin R (insulin regular) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I have used a lot of pills and insulin over the years, but when I switched to Novolin R from Walmart, I had the best A1C tests of all. I never dropped below 7.3 with the other pills or Humalog or Lantus. My last two tests were 6.4 and then 5.3. I couldn't believe how well it was. Walmart also charges only $24.88 per vial where as a box of Humlog or Lantus pens was $110 to $120. The vial is equal to 3.3 pens from a 5 pen box."

Novolin R (insulin regular) for Diabetes, Type 1: "My options were to either pay the $306 for humalog or wait and pay $25 for novolin R. Novolin R in my option is unpredictable and must be used in small increments. It will keep you alive but it will also make you feel slightly like a zombie at first. I believe you get what you pay for and if normally insulin is hundreds of dollars theirs a reason novolin r is sold for $25. Still, I'm grateful for the option until my health insurance clears up. I would just advise people to use extreme caution and not take over 6 units at a time. It takes sometimes 3 hours before the insulin even kicks in so be aware if you keep taking more and more it will have a rubber band effect,,once it kicks in your sure to get low."

Humulin R U-500 (Concentrated) (insulin regular) for Diabetes, Type 1: "My Diabetes has never been in such good control ever since I started using Humulin R U-500 Insulin. I recently got an insulin pump and this is the insulin that was used. The insurance I have now will not cover any insulin so I had to stop taking Humulin R U-500 due to the fact I cannot afford the out of pocket costs. I am a hard working woman with a good job but because I am not at the poverty level I am unable to get assistance with paying for this insulin. I have been off of this insulin for 2 days and my blood sugars are rising 250-500. I need this insulin and I need help in order to be able to start using it again."
