I decided I wanted to give Regular insulin a try for evenings when I have high protein/fat meals so I can avoid a high alarm an hour or two after falling asleep… especially since I’m having trouble waking up to alarms earlier in the night.
I went to CVS and asked for a vial of R. The pharmacist came back with the vial and said, “this used to be really inexpensive.” Then he scanned the barcode and we discovered it costs $180 a vial!!!
I thought this stuff was supposed to be cheap.
I was trying to buy Humulin R. I’ve heard Walmart sells their own brand. Does the quality vary by brand? Are the Walmart ones decent quality?
