[IP] A Question about Novolog



Interesting converstation.

Insulin, regardless of the type, does not require a prescription to be 
purchased in Canada.  If you want your insurance to pay for it, a majority 
of the insurance companies require a prescription.  I can think of an 
insurance company, however; that doesn't even need that.  Most pharmacists 
will ask you a variety of questions as well before they sell iinsulin to you 
because they want to make sure you are needing it because you are a 
diabetic.  Unfortunately, insulin is bought for "other" uses as well.  And 
they prefer if you have a prescription because then they know that you are 
being monitored by your doctor which in turn hopefully means that your 
"healthcare team" is actively monitoring your health to help you obtain the 
best quality of life that you can and watch for potential problems.

Kim.
