Am I eligible for Novolin N patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Novolin N patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Novolin N enrollment application individually. The main factors considered are: 

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Novolin N patient assistance program?

Applying for the Novolin N patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Novolin N, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed. 

If we determine that you may be eligible for Novolin N assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Novolin N patient assistance program, we will also request your Novolin N medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Novolin N coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Novolin N coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Novolin N manufacturer coupons, Novolin N discounts, rebates, Novolin N savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Novolin N medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Novolin N if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Novolin N patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Novolin N
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Novolin N prescription
  • You do not have insurance

How much is Novolin N with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Novolin N with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay, contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Novolin N cost without insurance?

Novolin N prices without insurance will vary by retailer and will depend on if you buy a 10 mL multiple-dose vial or a 3 ml self-injecting Novolin N FlexPen. As a guide, a 10 mL multiple-dose vial of Novolin N insulin will typically cost around $200.

What is Novolin N?

Novolin N is a type of intermediate-acting insulin. It’s prescribed to adults and children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to lower blood glucose levels. If you have either condition, your doctor may have prescribed you Novolin N. It’s a type of insulin you inject into your body under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using either a self-injecting Novolin N FlexPen or a syringe. This increases how much insulin you have in your bloodstream, helping your cells to absorb more glucose, lowering your blood glucose levels.

Your prescribing doctor will tell you how often to inject Novolin N and how much. They may prescribe Novolin N to you alone or alongside other diabetes medications and treatments. Always take your Novolin N exactly as prescribed. 

Novolin N active ingredients

The active ingredient in Novolin N is calledisophane insulin. This is a synthetic (man-made) version of the insulin your pancreas naturally makes. 

Isophane insulin works in the same way as the insulin your pancreas makes, except it’s been designed to be slower acting. After injecting Novolin N, it takes around 90 minutes for the isophane insulin it contains to start working and it continues to work for between 16 to 24 hours. The isophane insulin in Novolin N increases how much insulin you have in your blood, ensuring your cells absorb more glucose, helping to lower your blood glucose to a healthy level. 

Novolin N side effects

Novolin N can cause side effects. These may include:

  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Reactions at the site of injection, including itching, rashes, skin thickening, or pits forming in your skin (lipodystrophy)
  • Swelling (edema) of the feet and hands
  • Weight gain

In rare instances, Novolin N can cause more serious side effects. These include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause anaphylaxis
  • Your blood sugar falling to dangerous levels (hypoglycemia)
  • Low potassium levels in your blood (hypokalemia)
  • Heart failure if you take Novolin N alongside another type of diabetes medication called TZDs (thiazolidinediones)

Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Novolin N against your risk of side effects. These aren’t all the side effects Novolin N can cause. You can read more about Novolin N side effects in the leaflet that comes with your medication, or you can talk to your doctor.

Novolin N drug interactions

Novolin N can interact with other medications. This can change how Novolin N and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins, and herbal and dietary supplements, particularly:

  • Any other diabetes medications
