Every month I throw away two bottles of insulin that are at least half full.The humalog is usually half gone, but the lantus is normally 3/4 full. It breaks my heart to just toss this desperately needed medicine in the trash. I have a five six "spoiled," bottles in my work shop box cause I just can't bring myself to throw them away.
Praise God my family and I are stable now and have money for everything we need, we all have desperately needed insurance, but there was a time when we had none of these things. And I know whats it's like stressing to the point of nearly crying aloud because I couldn't get test strips and only had four or five strips left. So I know what it's like to need meds and not have a way to get them. The worst was when we used our last glucagon and they are 175 dollars each and we needed at least at all times.
Well I suggest smaller bottles for young children.
