Here in Central California I asked the Walmart Pharmacy if they still have ReliOn Novolin N in stock, the tech said yes as she looked in the fridge and tilted a case of bottles towards me....

She also showed me a bottle of ReliOn Humulin N, so at least at my pharmacy, and as of yesterday, they had both.
When I asked the price on the Humulin I was told it is the same as the Novolin.

Just moving this up the page for anyone new to the ReliOn switch and seeking more information.

I just posted in the insulin poll thread. We made the switch 9 days ago and so far Noodle's numbers are consistent. Tentatively doing the happy dance since this cuts our insulin costs in half. I'm sure the saving will be eaten up with new expenses related to his more recent issues, but it will be nice to have that extra to add to the pot.

We participated in a discount savings program at Walgreen's where we previously purchased his insulin. Because of the program, we always needed a prescription. Feels strange to be able to just walk in the door, ask for insulin, and have them hand it right to you, lol.

There's not much reporting of the experience here, but thought I'd bring this forward. It was October 2010 when Walmart, which had used Novoling N for it's Relion N for years, switched to Humulin.

One last thread to bump... guess maybe I should merge them but that might be confusing.
