Default Re: questions on changing from HumulinN to Relion Novolin N

Just drove 30 miles to pick up 2 vials of Novolin N from a Walmart that still had it in stock. They, also, told me they would not be getting more. I felt like I found gold...as the expiration dates go to summer of 2012.......This will hold Pepper for the next few months till Walmart gets in gear with the new drug company. We aren't talking a couple of bucks here....we are talking $30 to $40 more a bottle. Oh the joys of small town living. Marlu

We were lucky also. Called ahead to Walmart, about 30 miles away, and were told they had 10 vials. I bought 2. Didn't ask about the change-over because there was a long line and I didn't want to hold everyone up.

We DID get the last two boxes of 3/10cc, 30iu, 31 gauge syringes this store had in stock.

Hi All,
Please don't think that supply of human insulin will be cut short. There should be a continuous supply throughout the change to the new manufacturer. There is no need to stock up unless you are very loyal to ReliOn/Novolin.

Thanks for your support!

Keep in mind too that you can also buy the ReliOn syringes at Sam's Clubs as with any of the ReliOn products.

And a reminder for those that are not members....'you' are allowed to use the pharmacy without a Sam's Club membership card, just tell 'em at the door you are going to the pharmacy.

I just finished Rudy's first vial of HumulinN yesterday, which the Vet started April 22. That means the vial was in use for 82 days. Three weeks ago his sugar levels began to rise after switching his food from WD to another brand. Last week, I switched him back to WD and his sugar levels immediately returned to normal, but using the 75 - 82 day old HumulinN. Apparently, HumulinN remains effective for 82 days.

Well that is very interesting Rudy, ty.

I am surprised Relion appeared here on this thread, a spokesperson of sorts I guess. I hope they/he/she helped you all in fears of not getting that insulin.
