This is the first time this has happened to me in almost 4 years, basically I have been told that I cannot order any Insuman basal until the end of Feb 2016. With only 1.5 pens left I am in a bit of a flap. I have contacted every chemist in a 20 km area to see if they have any sitting in their fridges and so far no-one has anything. It is looking highly likely that I will have to change basal for this period as I will have no other option. I have only ever used Insuman basal and am perfectly happy with it so I am not overly pleased with this development. Can anyone with experience of several basal insulin's recommend me something that is similar to Insuman. I've heard swapping basal insulin's can be quite traumatic so any tips on how to do so would be very useful.
