MEXICO

We have firsthand experience buying brand-name insulin for personal use in Tijuana, Mexico, for less than 10% of retail in America. Read about that experience on T1International’s blog, or watch the video documents of our trip in January 2019.

CANADA

Our neighbors to the north offer a couple options for buying insulin. The first is highlighted in this YouTube video by Erik Douds. The second is for those who can’t make the trip: Marks Marine Pharmacy.

CRAIGSLIST

If you are in dire need, check out your area’s Craigslist or OfferUp pages and use the search term “insulin”. Check the expiration, ask about refrigeration, get insulin.

WALMART

Not the best, but it will keep you alive. Buy refrigerated, workable, older insulins like R and NPH over-the-counter at Walmart. Learn how to use them here. And don’t die.
