From Kent, Washington, USA:

How long will it be before Humalog is available without a prescription?


Likely years: the new insulins can be mistaken for some of the old. (For example, Humalog is clear as is Regular. In the past, Regular was the only really "clear" insulin.) We didn't want mistakes so it is by prescription. I will expect that the FDA to keep it that way for at least 10 years.
