What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

ADMELOG is an insulin product prescribed to treat high blood sugar in patients with diabetes. It is used in people with both type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes is a disease of the endocrine system. In patients with type 1, they do not produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar. In patients with type 2, they produce insulin, but their cells have developed a “resistance” to normal levels of insulin.

Directions

Inject ADMELOG under the skin 15 minutes before a meal or immediately after a meal.


The dose of ADMELOG is different for everyone. Take it exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in ADMELOG is insulin lispro. Lispro is a type of rapid-acting insulin that begins working in 15 minutes. Do not skip a meal after taking ADMELOG, as this can cause dangerously low blood sugar.

Interactions

ADMELOG insulin can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). If it does, certain medications can mask the signs of hypoglycemia and make it harder to detect. These medications include:

  • Beta-blockers
  • Clonidine
  • Guanethidine
  • Reserpine

Other types of medications that interfere with ADMELOG include those that affect blood sugar. The dose of ADMELOG may need to be adjusted if you are taking the following medications:

  • Corticosteroids
  • Estrogen
  • Isoniazid
  • Niacin
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Phenothiazines
  • Thyroid replacement medications

Cautions

Always measure your blood sugar while taking insulin products. Insulin can cause hypoglycemia, which may be life-threatening. Frequent blood glucose monitoring helps to avoid these events.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of abnormal levels of potassium in the blood.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney or liver problems.

Side Effects

The most common side effects of ADMELOG insulin may include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Injection site reactions
  • Lipodystrophy
  • Pruritis
  • Rash
