Generic Humalog Mix50/50

It is unclear when a generic version of Humalog Mix50/50 will become available. Humalog Mix50/50 is a "biologic" medication, which means it is under different rules and laws than most other drugs. These rules are in the process of changing, but certain issues have to be sorted out before generic biologics become available.

Is a Generic Version of Humalog Mix50/50 Available?

Humalog® Mix50/50 (insulin lispro protamine/insulin lispro) is a prescription diabetes medication. It contains a mixture of 50 percent insulin lispro (a rapid-acting insulin) and 50 percent insulin lispro protamine (an intermediate-acting insulin).
 
This medication is made by Eli Lilly and Company. At this time, no generic versions of Humalog Mix50/50 (or any other insulin medications) are available.
 

When Will Generic Humalog Mix50/50 Be Available?

Humalog Mix50/50 is considered a "biologic" medication and is under different rules and laws than most other medications. In the past, generic biologics were not allowed by law. Although the laws have changed in order to allow manufacturers to make generic biologics, there is still some rulemaking to be done and practical matters to be worked out before such products enter the marketplace.
 
At this point, it is impossible to predict exactly when a generic version of Humalog Mix50/50 may become available.
