Hi and thank you for your question. I'm sorry, but there is no over the counter medication available that could perform as effectively and predictably as a prescription medication. Because of the many consequences of uncontrolled diabetes it is necessary to visit your Doctor or clinic regularly. Often times, pharmaceutical companies offer free medications to low income patients requiring the medication. Can you tell me which medication you were prescribed and I query to see if the company that makes it offers any assistance.
