Terms & Conditions of Program
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.
HUMULIN R is a prescription drug that can treat hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Insulin is a natural hormone produced by the pancreas. Pancreas cells release insulin into the bloodstream, where they attach to cells that then take up glucose for energy. With too little insulin in the blood, sugar levels remain high, and they cannot get into cells for metabolism. Extra blood sugar can cause damage to many different organs.
Patients with diabetes cannot produce normal levels of effective insulin. HUMULIN R provides extra insulin to bring blood sugar levels down to normal.
The prescribing physician determines the dose of HUMULIN R insulin. It can be given between one to three times daily with meals.
Inject HUMULIN R insulin under the skin 30 minutes before eating. Do not skip meals after taking a dose.
Store HUMULIN R in the refrigerator before it is opened. Once open, HUMULIN R vials can be kept in the refrigerator or at room temperature for 28 days.
HUMULIN R contains the active ingredient short-acting human insulin.
Human insulin begins working 30 minutes after injection and lasts for about 8 hours.
HUMULIN R does not have drug interactions with other medications. However, many drugs can affect the blood sugar of people with diabetes. Use caution if you are taking any of the following:
The dose of insulin may need to be adjusted if the above medications are increasing or decreasing blood sugar.
Tell your doctor if you have ever had problems with your liver or kidneys. Tell your doctor if you make significant changes to your diet or exercise regimen.
Check your insulin labels carefully before injection to avoid medication errors.
The common side effect of insulin treatment is hypoglycemia. Symptoms of hypoglycemia can include:
Other common symptoms of HUMULIN R are:
