Novolin N

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.

This is so sad. There is no real substitute for proper insulin. Here in Oz the price is subsidised by the federal government. I pay a maximum of $40 for a year's supply ( at twenty units a day)

Does Anyone Else Have Issues Of Substantial Weight Gain And Belly Bloating Using Lantus For Type 2
