Taking insulin regularly does not make you dependent on it. It just helps bring sugar under control very fast. And after achievemnt of target Hba1 c level the patient can be shifted to oral medicines. The side effects of insulin therapy is weight gain or injection site lipoatrophy or hypertrophy if taken at the same site everyday.
