Dosage/Direction for Use
Always check the pack and the label of the pre-filled pen for the name and type of the insulin when getting it from the pharmacy.
Always use Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 KwikPen exactly as the doctor's advice. Check with the doctor whenever in doubt. To prevent the possible transmission of disease, each pen must only be used by the patient, even if the needle is changed.
Dosage: Humalog Mix25 and Humalog Mix50 are normally injected within 15 minutes of a meal. It can be injected soon after a meal, if necessary. The doctor will tell exactly how much to use, when to use it, and how often. These instructions are for each individual patient only. The patient should follow them exactly and visit diabetes clinic regularly.
In changing the type of insulin used (for example from a human or animal insulin to a Humalog product), the patient may have to take more or less than before. This might just be for the first injection or it may be a gradual change over several weeks or months.
Inject Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 under the skin. It should not be administered using a different administration route. Under no circumstances should Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 be given intravenously.
If the patient forgets to use Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50: If Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 is taken less than necessary, a high blood sugar may occur. Check the blood sugar.
If hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) or hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) is not treated, they can be very serious and cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, unconsciousness, coma or even death (see Side Effects).
Three simple ways to avoid hypoglycaemia or hyperglycaemia are: Always keep spare syringes and a spare vial of Humalog Mix 25/Humalog Mix 50, or a spare pen and cartridges, in case the KwikPen is lost or gets damaged.
Diabetics should always carry something to identify their condition.
Sugar must be always on hand.
If the patient stops using Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50: If Humalog Mix 25/Humalog Mix 50 is taken less than necessary, a high blood sugar may occur. Do not change insulin unless the doctor told so.
