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.
LEVEMIR (Insulin detemir) is a long-acting insulin product. It is indicated to improve glycemic control in adults and children with diabetes mellitus.
People with diabetes mellitus either do not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes), or their body has become resistant to the insulin they produce (type 2 diabetes). LEVEMIR is a long-acting insulin that can help regulate and lower high blood sugar around-the-clock. After an injection, LEVEMIR typically lasts about 18-24 hours for most people.
Inject LEVEMIR subcutaneously once or twice daily. Inject LEVEMIR at the same time each day and do not modify the regimen without first speaking with your doctor.
Rotate injections sites to avoid localized cutaneous amyloidosis and lipodystrophy. Injection sites include the abdomen, thighs, and back of the upper arm.
Store LEVEMIR insulin pens or vials in the refrigerator while unopened. Once open, the package should be stored at room temperature for no more than 28 days.
Insulin glargine is the active ingredient in LEVEMIR (insulin detemir).
Low blood sugar is a medical emergency and can happen when using insulin. It is essential to be familiar with the signs of low blood sugar and to treat it quickly. Some medications can mask the signs, including:
Drugs can have different effects on the blood sugar of people with diabetes. Some can increase blood sugar while others lower it. The following medications can affect blood sugar, so tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking them:
Hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia are more common when the insulin regimen is changed (like using a new type of insulin, a new manufacturer, or a new injection site). Monitor blood sugar more often when making any changes.
Insulin products are commonly mixed up, which can lead to medication errors and low blood sugar. Read the label carefully before each injection of LEVEMIR.
While using insulin, the doctor should monitor glycemic control, potassium levels, liver function, and kidney function.
The most common side effects that patients experience while taking LEVEMIR insulin can include:
