Caution For Usage
Preparing Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 KwikPen: The KwikPen should be rotated in the palms of the hands ten times and inverted 180° ten times immediately before use to resuspend insulin until it appears uniformly cloudy or milky. If not, repeat the previously mentioned procedure until contents are mixed. Cartridges contain a small glass bead to assist mixing. Do not shake vigorously as this may cause frothing which may interfere with the correct measurement of the dose. The cartridges should be examined frequently and should not be used if clumps of material are present or if solid white particles stick to the bottom or wall of the cartridge, giving it a frosted appearance. Check each time of injection.
Getting the KwikPen ready to use: First, wash hands.
Read the instructions on how to use the pre-filled pen. Follow the instructions carefully.
Use a clean needle. (Needles are not included.)
Prime the KwikPen before each use. This checks that insulin comes out and clears the air bubbles from the KwikPen. There may still be some small air bubbles left in the pen - these are harmless. But if the air bubbles are too large, it may affect the insulin dose.
Injecting Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50: Before making an injection, clean the skin as instructed. Inject under the skin, as instructed. Do not inject directly into a vein. After the injection, leave the needle in the skin for five seconds to make sure that the whole dose was delivered. Do not rub the site of injection. Make sure that the injection is at least half an inch (1 cm) from the last site and a rotation in injection site should be made.
After injection: Unscrew the needle from the KwikPen using the outer needle cap, as soon as the injection is done. This will keep the insulin sterile and stop it from leaking. It also stops air entering the pen and the needle from clogging. Do not share needles. Do not share the pen. Replace the cap on the pen.
Futher injections: Always use a new needle for every use. Before every injection, clear any air bubbles. The insulin doses left can be seen by holding the KwikPen with the needle pointing up. The scale on the cartridge shows about how many units are left.
Do not mix any other insulin in the disposable pen. Once the KwikPen is empty, do not use it again. Discard it carefully, the pharmacist or diabetes nurse will instruct how to do this.
Do not use Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 KwikPen, if clumps of material are present or if solid white particles stick to the bottom or wall of the cartridge, giving it a frosted appearance. Check each time of injection.
Medicines should not be disposed of via wastewater or household waste. Ask a pharmacist on how to dispose of medicines no longer required. These measures will help to protect the environment.
