    Curious about Walmart insulin

    I just found out this morning, Walmart carries a Relion brand of insulin. Type-R, Type-N, and 70-30 in the vial.
    No prescription needed and $24.88 a vial.
    Since there were talks of the Relion brand of meter and test strips being acceptable, I was wondering where this insulin stands. Does anyone use it? My doctor never mentioned it. I would have used this a year ago when I had no insurance and it was costing me $275 for a bottle of Humalog 75/25.

    They are older insulins that have a little different half life. So they don't work exactly like modern insulins but are a great option. I think you can only get vials, no pens.
