A 38-year-old female asked:
I'm trying to find out which insulin may be better for me. Apidra (insulin glulisine) or novalog. My insurance doesn't consider apidra (insulin glulisine) to be a preferred brand anymore..

Fast acting insulin: They are both fast acting insulin, with about the same onset of action and duration. Novalog is fine, and it is not worth paying extra for apidra (insulin glulisine).
