Fda Approves Novo Nordisk Fast-acting Insulin Fiasp

(Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved Novo Nordisk’s fast-acting insulin to treat diabetes. The product, known as Fiasp, is designed to help diabetics control post-meal spikes in blood sugar. It is already approved in Canada and Europe. Fiasp, or faster acting insulin asparte, is designed to work faster than existing fast-acting insulin such as Eli Lilly and Co’s Humalog and Novo Nordisk’s own NovoLog, known as NovoRapid outside the United States. Last year the FDA declined to approve the product and requested additional information. Continue reading >>

    Hi guys! I hope everyone is enjoying the fall so far. My cats got some new toys yesterday, icluding a new cat tree for the patio, and they are in love!!
    I went to WalMart today to refill my cat's Lantis, and the cost was $288!!! The pharmacist was very nice and pulled me aside to talk to me about other options. He said, that I probably don't need the lantis, becuase that is the "designer" insulin. He mentioned that Walmart has three other options for $24/month, and we dont need a perscprition.
    WalMar offers:
    Insulin N
    Insulin R
    Insulin 70/30
    Does anyone have any expereince with these?? I am seriousely looking to switch over, if it makes sense, of course! The $288 this month is not doable! Let me know if you've tried it and what you think

    @Emilyskor is there any chance you can make a quick trip up to BC? Here we don't need a prescription for insulin & I know the lantis is much cheaper, I paid about $110 for a box of 5 pens.
    I think the insulin Walmart was telling you about is the harsh short acting novelin insulin but I could be wrong.

    Vegetable is right, those are short-acting insulins that are harder on the cat and the caregiver. If you can't get up to Canada, you can order the Lantus from a Canadian pharmacy. We have several people here who do that. I'll look for the link for you. There's also someone selling Lantus on the Supply Closet forum for a good price.
    Edited To Add: here's the link to a discussion of different Canadian pharmacies.
