I can not afford the "good" insulin. The over the counter works really slow and not well, I lost my insurance coverage and the Novalog and Lavimere is So expensive that I just can not afford it anymore. I work and make just enough to pay the bills but I can not afford extra things like insurance or the "good" insulin. Surely their is a way to get them cheaper. They are very inexpensive in Canada and other countries, just NOT OURS! I would really appreciate some direction. I am the middle class that works hard and makes too much to get it free or inexpensive and make too less to be able to afford it.
Thank you,

Hi Tanya, have you looked into patient assistance programs? Here is an application for NovoNordisk, maker of Novolog and Levemir:

NPH and Humulin R are less costly alternatives, but their dosing regimen will look different than Novolog and Levemir.

Hope that helps some.
