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.


HUMALOG (insulin lispro) is a prescription insulin product that is prescribed to treat types 1 and 2 diabetes

Insulin is a naturally-occurring hormone that regulates the amount of glucose that is available in the blood. People with diabetes either do not have enough insulin or have lost sensitivity to insulin. Without enough insulin, their blood glucose is often too high.

HUMALOG insulin replaces normal human insulin and helps to restore healthy levels of blood glucose. When glucose is too high or too low in diabetic patients, it can cause long-term damage.


HUMALOG insulin is injected under the skin between 1 to 4 times daily. The dose is individualized and determined by your doctor.

Do not mix HUMALOG with other insulins unless directed to by your doctor.


The active ingredient in HUMALOG is insulin lispro.

Insulin has very few drug interactions. However, use caution with certain drug combinations because they can mask the symptoms of hypoglycemia. Tell your doctor if you are taking the following:

  • Beta-blockers
  • Clonidine
  • Guanethidine
  • Reserpine


Review the signs and symptoms of low blood sugar before starting or changing any insulin regimen. Common signs include:

  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Hunger
  • Irritability
  • Pale skin
  • Sweating
  • Tingling or numbness of the face
  • Tremor

Tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or a history of low potassium.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney and liver dysfunction, as the dose of insulin may need to be adjusted.

Side Effects

The most common side effects of HUMALOG insulin may include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Injection site reactions
  • Lipodystrophy
  • Pruritus
