Full Prescribing Info
Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 KwikPen is used to treat diabetes. It is a premixed suspension. Its active substance is insulin lispro. 25% or 50% of the insulin lispro in Humalog Mix25 or Humalog Mix50 KwikPen, respectively, is dissolved in water and it works more quickly than normal human insulin because the insulin molecule has been changed slightly. 75% or 50% of the insulin lispro in Humalog Mix25 or Humalog Mix50 KwikPen, respectively, is available in a suspension together with protamine sulphate, so that its action is prolonged.
Diabetes is developed if the pancreas does not make enough insulin to control the level of glucose in the blood. Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 is a substitute for the patient's own insulin and is used to control glucose in the long term. Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 works very quickly and longer than soluble insulin. The patient should normally use Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 within 15 minutes of a meal.
The doctor may advise to use Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 KwikPen as well as a longer-acting insulin. Each kind of insulin comes with another patient information leaflet. Do not change the insulin unless advised by the doctor. Be very careful if there is a change in insulin.
The KwikPen is a disposable pre-filled pen containing 3 ml (300 units, 100 units/ml) of insulin lispro. One KwikPen contains multiple doses of insulin. The KwikPen dials 1 unit at a time. The number of units are displayed in the dose window, always check this before injection. Units from 1 to 60 units can be given in a single injection. If the dose is more than 60 units, more than one injection should be given.
