Re: [IP] travelling



Although this isn't related to the original question, I thought all you
travelers to California might want to know that Humalog isn't available over
the counter in California.  At least that's what I was told at by a
Walgreens pharmacist.  Other types of insulin -- yes, no prescription is
required.  Humalog?...you have to have a prescription.  Why?  Dunno - dumb!
But you should know in case you're in a pinch sometime.
