Humalog 50/50 (Insulin Lispro)

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Description

    HUMALOG 50 50 Mix is a prescription insulin product prescribed for people with diabetes. It can be prescribed for type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

    Directions

    Take HUMALOG 50 50 mix exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The dose is individualized for each person.

    HUMALOG 50 50 is injected under the skin between one and four times daily.

    Ingredients

    HUMALOG Mix 50 50 contains two different types of insulin.

    The first is insulin lispro. Lispro is a short-acting insulin that begins working in 15 minutes and lasts for about 5 hours.

    The second is insulin lispro protamine. Lispro protamine is an intermediate-acting insulin. It contains insulin lispro suspended in a type of large protein called protamine. Lispro protamine begins working in about 3 hours and lasts for 12 hours or more.

    The mixture of insulins provides a short burst followed by a steady stream of insulin throughout the day. 

    Interactions

    Some medications may make it harder to tell when you have signs of low blood sugar. The following medications may mask signs of hypoglycemia:

    • Beta-blockers
    • Clonidine
    • Guanethidine
    • Reserpine



    Certain medications can impact blood sugar and affect how insulin works. They may include:

    • Corticosteroids
    • Estrogen
    • Isoniazid
    • Niacin
    • Oral contraceptives
    • Phenothiazines
