Humalog Insulin Information

Approved to treat both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, Humalog® (insulin lispro) is a rapid-acting form of insulin that is available by prescription only. The medication, which is injected within 15 minutes before or after meals, is designed to help control the blood sugar spike that occurs after meals. Most people who use this product will also need a long-acting insulin to provide a steady background level of insulin to help control blood sugar throughout the day.
 
This drug is not suitable for everyone. It is important to discuss the prescribing information for Humalog with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. For instance, you may not be able to use this insulin product if you are taking certain medications, have certain allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding. Possible side effects include low blood sugar, skin reaction at the injection site, and thickening or pitting of the skin at the injection site.
