What type of insulin is Novolin?

Novolin for diabetes is the type of insulin that is really similar to the regular insulin produced in the human body. Its active substance insulin Isophane is also known as Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) insulin. Non-medicinal but clinically relevant ingredients also include zinc chloride, glycerol, metacresol, phenol, disodium phosphate dihydrate, sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid, protamine sulfate, and water for injections.

Is Novolin the same as Humalog?

No, these two insulins are not the same. Even though they have some things in common, these medications require a different amount of time to start working, as well as last in the body for a different time period. Moreover, Humalog is the brand name for insulin lispro, when Novolin is one for insulin regular.

Is Novolin fast-acting insulin?

Novolin is represented by three main types of insulins. Each of them has a different acting principle:

  • Novolin 70/30 (contains mixed NPH and regular insulin). It is also available in such proportions as 40/60 and 50/50. It is an intermediate-acting medication, which means it starts working approximately 20 minutes after administration, reaches its peak in 2 hours, and lasts for a day;
  • Novolin N (contains NPH insulin). This type is an intermediate-acting insulin. The effect starts in 2-3 hours after the injection, peaks in 4-12 hours (depending on the dose, and last up to 18 hours);
  • Novolin R (contains regular insulin). This one is a short-acting insulin. It starts working quickly (in 30 minutes after the administration), has its peak in 2-3 hours, and works for up to 8 hours.

How long does Novolin last in the body?

Depending on the type of insulin your doctor prescribed you (short-acting or intermediate-acting), it may last from 8 hours and up to a day (24 hours).

When should I take Novolin?

Novolin should be applied subcutaneously 30 minutes before or after the meal. After the remedy application, excessive blood glucose in the body is readjusted to the liver, muscles, or fat tissues and stored there. It is released in the bloodstream when it is needed.

Doctors recommend applying it at the same time every day to create the habit in the body. Do not inject the medications into the vein or muscle. The proper areas are buttocks, upper arm, abdomen, or thighs. Do not massage the area after injection.

There are some rules on how to take Novolin if you are pregnant, so ask your doctor about that. Individual consultation is required in this case.

What is the generic form of Novolin for high blood sugar?

The generic form of the drug is a copy of the brand-name drug. Nowadays, the generic form for Novolin does not exist; however, there are some cheaper analogs of it (mind that they are not as effective as the original medication).

What are the side effects of Novolin insulin?

Every patient with diabetes should be aware of possible side effects that may occur after the insulin injection. Mild side effects include injection site reactions (e.g., rash, redness, itching, etc.), nausea, bloating, headache, and slight weight gain. These are not dangerous and should be gone without a doctor’s help.

There is a list of severe side effects that may affect your health and lead to serious consequences. Notify your health care provider if you have noticed any of them after insulin administration:

  • Any signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia);
  • Blurred vision;
  • Muscle cramps;
  • Irregular heartbeat;
  • Constant tiredness and unusual weakness.

All these symptoms may also be a sign of heart failure, so do not leave it without attention. You may require medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment right away.

The most common side effect after insulin product administration is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar episodes). In the early stages, you may deal with it on your own. First of all, a quick sugar source should be with you all the time. Consume some sweet snacks or sugary drinks to increase blood sugar levels. Carrying glucose pills with you is also a good habit. During the severe episodes of low blood sugar, the patient may need a glucagon injection. To get it, it is necessary to contact the doctor and drive to the clinic or ask the specialist to come on call.

Are there any storage rules for Novolin?

Rules for storing Novolin are the same as for all insulin products. Keep unopened vials, cartridges, and kwikpens in the fridge at a temperature of 2 to 8 °C. Do not put them in the freezer or near the freezer compartment. If you did – do not use the medication.

Insulin that you are going to use or currently using should be stored at room temperature (not higher than 25°C). Keep in a dry, dark place, away from heat, direct sunlight, and children. Use it 28 days after opening. Do not administer the remedy after the expiration date mentioned on the box.

Can I get Novolin over the counter?

Yes, it is possible to buy Novolin insulin products over the counter. However, a consultation with the doctor is required before you started using it. The specialist will explain how to take the medication in your case, what dosage is the best for you, etc.

Please remember that you need a verified prescription from your doctor in order to buy medications at Insulin.Store. Its copy will be saved in our database. You need to provide an up-to-date prescription if the previous one is expired.
