  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:

 

    • An unexplained rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Swelling of the mouth or throat
    • Wheezing or other difficulty breathing

 

  • Symptoms of low blood sugar, such as:

 

    • Shakiness
    • Difficulty speaking
    • Loss of coordination
    • Extreme hunger
    • Sweating
    • Dizziness
    • Changes in behavior, such as irritability or mood swings

Some people may have different signs of low blood sugar. Make sure those around you know how to recognize your particular signs of low blood sugar, as you may be too confused (due to low blood sugar) to recognize and adequately respond to low blood sugar levels.
 

Final Thoughts on Novolin R Side Effects

You may experience some or none of the Novolin R side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug, or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
