ENROLL NOW How It Works
Humalog (insulin lispro) injection is FDA-approved fast-acting insulin, sometimes called mealtime insulin, only available to individuals with a prescription.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas and controls blood sugar levels by helping the body use and store its sugar from the food we eat. In patients with diabetes, there is either not enough insulin getting produced, or the cells are not responding well enough to insulin to control blood sugar levels.
Humalog (insulin lispro) starts working faster and for a shorter period than regular human insulin. It is used to treat people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes for controlling hyperglycemia.
The safety and effectiveness of Humalog for children with type 2 diabetes or children younger than 3 years of age with type 1 diabetes are not yet determined. There are no complete clinical studies for children in these groups.
This insulin is often used along with long-acting insulin, such as Lantus or Basaglar, or oral diabetes medications.
Facts about Humalog Mix50/50, Mix75/25, insulin lispro protamine, and insulin lispro injectable suspension Mix75/25:
Do not take this medication if you have:
Never reuse or share your insulin needles with other people. This includes the single-patient use pen (KwikPen), cartridges, needles, and syringes. Doing so can put you and the other person at an increased risk of infection.
Do not use a syringe to remove insulin from the prefilled pen.
Never change your dose of Humalog or the type of insulin you use. Doing so can cause severe high or low blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can be serious and life-threatening. Symptoms of hypoglycemia may include:
Before using Humalog, tell your healthcare provider:
How to store Humalog:
Store your unused Humalog vials and pens in the refrigerator between 36- and 46-degrees Fahrenheit. Never let your insulin freeze, and do not use it if it gets frozen. Unused Humalog can be used up until the expiration date printed on the label.
Humalog that you are currently using can be stored at room temperature (up to 86℉ degrees) for up to 28 days. Try to keep your insulin away from heat and light.
Humalog can come in the form of either a vial or a prefilled pen. An instructional insert comes with each form of insulin. Read the complete instruction guide to know how to prepare and inject each dose and dispose of needles and pens correctly.
Patients must continue to check their blood sugar and use Humalog exactly as their healthcare provider has prescribed it.
This type of insulin can either be used in an insulin pump or for multiple daily injections. Your healthcare provider will provide you with advice specific to your method of using Humalog.

Where to inject Humalog:
Humalog should get injected under the skin around the stomach, buttocks, upper legs, or upper arms. Be sure to rotate injection sites with each dose.
Your specific Humalog dose will vary from other individuals. The dose gets based upon your specific needs and condition. Your healthcare provider will prescribe a dose for you to take and make adjustments to that dose as needed.
If you are new to using insulin lispro or are switching from a different type of mealtime insulin, then closely monitor your blood sugar level. Checking your blood sugar often or using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) will help your healthcare provider make appropriate adjustments to your insulin dosage.
Never mix or dilute this medicine with any other insulin or solution.
Patients with type 1 diabetes must either use this insulin in an insulin pump or with long-acting insulin. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options.

The most common side effects of Humalog may include:
Report side effects to your healthcare provider, especially if you have persistent adverse reactions.
It is always recommended that you keep extra insulin supplies with you if there is a problem with your insulin pump or injection device.
Avoid mixing insulin lispro with any other type of insulin or solution. Always make sure the insulin is clear and colorless and does not have any particles floating in it.
Avoid driving or operating machinery if you have extremely high or low blood sugar levels. You may experience blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness, making it dangerous. Wait until you know you can perform the activity safely and effectively.
Avoid alcohol consumption while taking this medication, as it may increase your risk of having hypoglycemia.
Drugs that can increase your risk of hypoglycemia:
The risk of experiencing a hypoglycemic event with Humalog can be increased if you are also taking other glucose-lowering medications, salicylates, sulfonamide antibiotics, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, fluoxetine, pramlintide, disopyramide, fibrates, propoxyphene, pentoxifylline, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blocking agents, and somatostatin analogs.
Drugs that can decrease Humalog’s effect:
Humalog’s glucose-lowering effect can be impacted if co-administered with corticosteroids, isoniazid, niacin, estrogens, oral contraceptives, phenothiazines, danazol, diuretics, sympathomimetic agents, somatropin, atypical antipsychotics, glucagon, protease inhibitors, and thyroid hormones.
Drugs that can increase or decrease Humalog’s effect:
The overall effectiveness of Humalog can be impacted if taken with beta-blockers, clonidine, lithium salts, and alcohol.
It is important to note that other drugs may mask hypoglycemia. Medicines such as beta-blockers, clonidine, guanethidine, and reserpine can make you unaware of a hypoglycemic event.
Talk to your healthcare provider about all the medications you are taking, including other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements. You may need your Humalog dosage adjusted depending on what other medicines you are taking.
