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.
NOVOLIN R insulin (regular human insulin) is prescribed for people with diabetes mellitus. In people with diabetes, blood sugar can increase to unsafe levels. NOVOLIN R helps to improve glycemic control by lowering blood sugar to normal levels.
Inject NOVOLIN R under the skin as directed by the prescriber. Those doses are individualized based on diet, exercise, and other lifestyle factors.
NOVOLIN R is typically injected between one and three times daily prior to meals.
Inject NOVOLIN R 30 minutes before a meal, and do not skip a meal after injection. Skipping a meal can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
NOVOLIN R regular insulin vials can be stored in the refrigerator unopened and used until the expiration date on the vial. However, when opened, they should be stored at room temperature and only used for 28 days.
The active ingredient in NOVOLIN R is regular human insulin, a short-acting insulin product.
Many medications change blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Monitor blood sugar more frequently when starting new medications to manage the effects on blood glucose. Medications that are known to affect blood glucose include:
Hypoglycemia can be life-threatening, so it is critical to know the signs when they occur. Signs of hypoglycemia may include:
Tell your doctor if you have a history of low potassium levels because insulin treatment can lower potassium in some people.
If you have a history of kidney or liver problems, the dose of insulin may need to be adjusted.
NOVOLIN R can only be mixed with NPH insulin. Do not mix it with other types of insulin in the same syringe.
Some of the most common adverse effects that happen with NOVOLIN R may include:
