ReliOn insulin
 
Just saw a few minutes ago on the ReliOn Facebook page that they are asking to be notified if your Walmart is out of insulin. They would need the name / location of the store.

Happened to me last Christmas. I was horrified but everything worked out okay obviously. Just went to one of the THREE Walmarts in Lincoln, NE to choose from. Such a love hate relationship I have with that company...

A friend of mine has stated that she has recieved a confirmation reply from ReliOn FB stating that ReliOn Novolin is now being shipped to Walmart Pharmacies.

That's helpful for me since we are using Novolin now. But interesting they would switch back from Humulin to Novolin so soon. Wonder what the background story is on their contract.

Bet it is about the money. Just hope they are able to keep the retail price at $25. It's been $25 for at least three years, not much today is the same price for three years.

Seems kind of out of the blue. No forewarning they were switching up.

Here is a chart comparing insulins that had been on the ReliOn site a few years ago. The chart indicates there might be some minor differences between the Humulin-N and Novolin-N. I don't recall anything major when we changed from Novolin to Humulin two years ago, but I'll probably back off about 10% on the dosage and run additional tests for a few days when I switch over to Novolin.
