In another thread (Buying insulin while in Canada) I discussed our experience in buying insulin in Canada. Over the past few weeks, we needed to purchase insulin in Spain and in France.
We were able to buy without a prescription in both places. I am not sure if it is because it is legal or because it is not strongly enforced.
We purchased disposable novolog (novorapid) pens in Spain for 48 Euros per box of 5, which is about US$55.
We purchased FIASP in France for 34 Euros per pack of 5 cartridges, which is amazingly cheap ($39). It is the cheapest I have seen insulin so far anywhere we have been, including Central America.
We will be sure to fill up on insulin in France before leaving Europe next summer
