Norwegian health authorities are now introducing rations to ensure all patients that need insulin get their medication reports NRK.

Some pharmacies in Norway have reported insulin being out of stock due to people stockpiling due to the corona virus pandemic.

New rationing by health authorities mean that pharmacies shall not sell more than 1 months worth of insulin and insulin analog, compared to the normal of 3 months dosage.

Health authorities have already started to ration paracetamol due to shortage amid the corona pandemic. Pharmacies will be allowed to sell at the most 100 tablets of paracetamol at a time for patients with a “white prescription”.

Also, patients with “blue” and “H” prescriptions will only be allowed to get medications for 3 months at a time in order to avoid stockpiling. This includes acetylsalicylic acid (Albyl-E) 75 mg.

“There is enough insulin in the country, but you need time to get it distributed to the pharmacies” said Turid Gjerde Spillin, communication chief at the Diabetes organization in Norway.

People are being encouraged to show solidarity and not stockpile insulin if they already have enough available at home.
