I thought the only two you would consider were Humilin R for Rapid or Humalog. Humalog being the best choice. It says here novalog is rapid, don't know why we wouldn't have heard of it though http://www.novolog.com/

I think Humalog is much easier to get your hands on, thus making it a much more well known product

Humalog and Novolog are about the same. Anyone will do.

i live in pittsburgh and humalog can not be purchased otc like humilin-r so i order it online. the web site i get my humalog from also sells novolog and im considering ordering it next time since its a little faster acting

Anyone got stats on time frames between the two?

Humalog onset time is about 15 minutes, it peeks at about 2 hours and it's duration period is about 4 - 5 hours.
Novolog onset time is about the same as Humalog, it peeks at about 50 minutes and its duration period is also about the same as Humalog.
The above refers for Sub-Q. Onset and duration times are cut in about half when doing IM.
Novolog is a little stronger and faster acting than Humalog. IMO, they are about the same as the timing difference in the 2 Insulins is not great.
Hope that helped.
