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

HUMALOG Mix 50 50 is an insulin medication prescribed to treat patients with diabetes. Insulin is used in patients with types 1 and 2 diabetes.

Insulin is naturally produced in the body and it helps to regulate the level of glucose in the blood. Glucose is necessary to provide energy for the cells of the body, but too much or too little can cause damage.

Patients with diabetes cannot regulate the levels of sugar in their bodies, and HUMALOG Mix 50 50 helps to do so.

Directions

The dose of HUMALOG 50/50 is different for everyone. Inject HUMALOG 50/50 under the skin as directed by your doctor.

Ingredients

HUMALOG Mix 50 50 is a mixture of two different types of insulin: insulin lispro and insulin lispro protamine. 

Insulin lispro is a fast-acting type of insulin that begins working about 15 minutes after injection. Insulin lispro protamine is an intermediate-acting insulin that releases over about 12 hours.

The combination of the two insulins provides a quick and short burst of insulin, followed by a steady level throughout the day.

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

Some drugs may mask the signs of hypoglycemia. Tell your doctor if you are taking any of these:

  • Beta-blockers
  • Clonidine
  • Guanethidine
  • Reserpine

Cautions
