I can get the actual product no problem (I have a running prescription being a diabetic so all my diabetic products are covered except for the actual finger pokers - not the device, it comes with the monitor, but the sharp thingy that actually punctures the finger). It's the contacting of the company that I'm having problems with because it's all US contact information and I'm in Canada! FRUSTRATING!

And here you don't even need a prescription to get syringes I believe. Only if you want them covered by insurance or MSP (if you're covered on Fair Pharmacare-subsidy for low income- or welfare or disability)

That's so weird that you can't get Lantus - it's not like it's a controlled substance or anything - in fact, unless you need it for insurance purposes, you don't even need a prescription here. You need a prescription for the syringes, but not for the insulin itself.

I was on Lantus before going on te pump, but could never get things exacty right - didn't seem to last as long as it was supposed to. Still, it was better than injecting every 4 hours.

Good luch with your searc!

So Lantus is available in Canada, however their website is only available for US. I need to contact them (as advised by my diabetic nurse) regarding my insulin allergy and considering switching to Lantus from Humulin, whether there would be any advantage to it. When I tried to fill in the contact form (sometimes you can jump through the hoops and leave the US state "from" blank), I couldn't leave it blank. And I don't want to lie on the form obviously just to get an answer. So does anyone know if there's a Canadian Lantus site (I tried googling, but all I got was sites about how Lantus is now available in Canada, but couldn't find any Canadian contact information)? Or if there's Canadian contact information? Or do you know if I contact the US # if they'll even talk to me because I'm Canadian because it's still about their product?
