FYI. in the US, you do not need a prescription for NPH, Regular, 70/30 or a pack of syringes with needles. It's not Humalog but in a pinch, it'll help. Also, telemedicine can help. apps like AmWell or Teladoc can hook you up for US$49.

FYI this once happened to me. I went to the endo department of the closest hospital and begged a reservoir full of insulin off a nurse there.

to follow up on****s comment, I get my insulin over the counter, no prescription needed at SAMs Club or Walmart, it's basically a generic insulin( you're not paying for the brand name like Novolog) they are only $24.98 a vial. they have Novolin, Novolin 70/30, just ask the Pharmacist.
