Novolin N

I gained a significant amount of weight when I first started this insulin. Is that a common side effect? Do other types of insulin cause weight gain. I should also mention I am "cash pay," meaning I do not have insurance so the insulin would have to be something I can obtain, over the counter that doesn't require a prescription.
