NovoLog (insulin aspart) is a fast-acting insulin prescribed to treat Type I and Type II diabetes. Diabetes is a complex disease related to the way the body processes and uses sugar from foods, via the pancreas. NovoLog works by supplying the needed insulin not adequately supplied by the pancreas.
There are a wide variety of insulin products on the pharmaceutical market, but there is currently no generic available for NovoLog. Diabetic medications vary somewhat in price, but uninsured patients can expect to pay hundreds of dollars for just a 30-day supply of NovoLog. Even with insurance, diabetes is incurable, so co-pays begin to add up when stacked with the costs of diabetic testing supplies.
Fortunately, there are two quick ways to save money on the cost of NovoLog. First, printing a NovoLog coupon and using it at the pharmacy can save consumers money immediately off the sticker price. While online, patients can also take advantage of the comparison shopping tools; simply plug in your local zip code to get a detailed list of the NovoLog prices in your area.
