Many diabetics have found that they can get cheap insulin from Canada, and either have it shipped to their door in the US, or pick it up across the border.
*** See Robert S.'s post on the Tips Page for detailed info and links to a couple Canadian Pharmacies that he has used. And if you have experiences and details, you'd like to share, we'd love to hear them. ***
All types of insulin are much cheaper in Canada than the US: Humalog, Fiasp, Lantus, etc., can be bought fr between about $30 and $80 per 10 ml vial, or box of pen cartridges, from Canadian pharmacies.
Many Canadian pharmacies offer insulin and other medications on their websites, but only some ship direct to the US. Others will ship to a Canadian address, and many US diabetics will just use a Canadian mail forwarding service to get their insulin delivered to the US.
Apparently, at least some of these pharmacies even can provide a prescription, if you don't have one. Of course, we don't recommend that you take the prescription insulins without a prescription from your doctor, but apparently, it's not necessary for some of these pharmacies to sell or ship them.
We'll provide more information and links about these in the next few days. If you have experience and/or knowledge about buying insulin from Canada, please send in your tips.
