ENROLL NOW How It Works
NovoLog (insulin aspart injection) is a rapid-acting, also called fast-acting, insulin that is injected subcutaneously to help lower blood sugar levels in adults and children with diabetes mellitus. It is specifically used to lower mealtime blood sugar spikes and for correcting hyperglycemia.
NovoLog may be used along with a long-acting insulin, particularly in those with type 1 diabetes.
This type of insulin is used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults and type 1 diabetes in adults and children at least 2 years of age.
Insulin aspart starts working within 15 minutes after injection, peaks at about an hour, and lasts for 2-4 hours after administration.
Never share your insulin aspart medication with anyone else, even if the needle has been changed. You may put that person at risk of having an infection or you can be putting yourself at risk of getting an infection from them.
What to Avoid:
NovoLog is contraindicated in patients that have a hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients, and during moments of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar include:
This medication can be supplied in different forms depending on your treatment regimen.
No matter the form of NovoLog you use, the dosage strength of 100 units per mL (U-100) will remain the same. Below is a breakdown of the different ways insulin aspart is supplied:
The NovoLog FlexPen and FlexTouch have a dial for dosing each injection. The dial is adjusted using 1-unit increments.
Your dosage of NovoLog will depend upon your specific condition and insulin needs. Your doctor will work with you in determining the proper carb-to-insulin ratio that keeps your blood sugar levels in range.
Your dosage and insulin needs may need to be adjusted if there are changes to your lifestyle. For example, you may need less insulin or time your insulin differently if you begin exercising more. Again, speak with your doctor to determine your exact dosage.
Before injecting insulin, always check the label to ensure the vial or pen is not expired and that you are using the right type of insulin.
Inspect your insulin pen or vial before injecting the medication. Ensure that the solution is clear and colorless. Do not inject NovoLog if the solution is cloudy, colored, or if there are particles present.
Do not mix or combine NovoLog with other types of insulin if you are administering using an insulin pump.
Patients are recommended to inject NovoLog subcutaneously 5-10 minutes before a meal into the abdomen, thigh, buttocks, or upper arm.
Rotate your injection sites regularly to prevent injection site reactions. Injecting in the same area without giving that area time to heal can increase your risk of lipodystrophy.

If your healthcare provider makes changes to your insulin regimen, then consider checking your blood sugar levels more frequently.
Do not inject where the skin:
The most common side effects of NovoLog may include:
Low blood sugar can be a serious side effect and may even be life-threatening in some circumstances. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to treat low blood sugar.
Call your doctor and seek immediate medical attention if you begin to experience breathing difficulties, fast heartbeat, swelling of your face or throat, sweating, extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion.
Before using NovoLog, talk to your doctor about all the other medications you are taking, including other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements. Drug interactions can cause severe and unwanted adverse effects.
If you are prescribed one of the above medications along with NovoLog, then work with your doctor to determine the best intervention plan. Your dosage of NovoLog may need to be adjusted and how often you monitor your blood glucose may need to be increased.
