Re: RE: Re:[IP] Popping Humalog



Here in Australia, you need a script for all insulin. In the last six 
months the govt has approved free syringes and needle tips for those 
using pens - this is in NSW at the moment and will hopfully extend to 
other states in the near future if it hasn't already.
