Last week, we were one of the first publications to alert you to the availability of Novo’s rapid aspart insulin under the Walmart ReliOn label. The pricing they are offering is under $86 for a box of 5 pens. This is a big saving from $240 a box at CVS or Walgreens. This points out the need for us to realize that, if the medicine costs too much for the patients, then it does not really matter how good it is.

If you are thinking about the same thing in your non-insulin dependent patients, you will want to check out this week’s feature from Torré Anderson, Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate, Florida A&M University College of Pharmacy. He takes a look at which non-insulin medication delivers the best bang for the buck.
