Insulin

How easy is it to get insulin? Can I just walk into a pharmacy and ask for insulin?

YES. If they ask you anything just say I take 20-30IU 2-3 times a day.

It depends on where you live. Most places it is over the counter. A lot of stores just keep in in a little refrigerator by the rest of the over the counter meds. Some places you will have to ask. Where I live needles are over the counter also. I would be very hessitant to use insulin though.

It depends on where you live and the individual pharmacy’s policy. To check availability in your area, you could try calling pharmacies under the guise of being a diabetic who just moved to the area. However, if you are considering insulin, make sure and do a lot of reasearch. Insulin is serious business.
