"Sanofi raised the U.S. price of its Lantus insulin for a second time this year and Novo Nordisk A/S may follow suit before an onslaught of generics increases competition in the $35 billion diabetes market." This from The Washington Post.

This is correct...my 12 yo cat takes Lantus...5 months ago it went from $135 to $150. Her refill yesterday was $202!!

Bring on the Generics. The pharmacist suggested I use the Lantus coupons until this happens...
