Tresiba

Tresiba (insulin degludec) is an expensive drug used to lower the amount of sugar in your blood. This drug is less popular than comparable drugs. There are currently no generic options for any insulin brand, but less expensive biosimilar versions may be available in the future. It is covered by some Medicare and insurance plans, but manufacturer and pharmacy coupons can help offset the cost. Compare insulins.
