Trurapi (Insulin Aspart)

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.

  • Product Details


    Trurapi (insulin aspart) is a type of insulin that is prescribed to help manage blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes.

    Trurapi is rapid-acting and should be administered immediately before (5-10 minutes) or immediately after a meal.

    Trurapi comes in pre-filled disposable pens. Trurapi also comes in cartridges that are to be used with reusable JuniorStar® and AllStar® PRO pens only.


    Use Trurapi as your healthcare provider has instructed. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.

    Your healthcare provider will tell you how to use Trurapi insulin, where to inject your insulin, how you should administer it, and how often you should administer it.

    Trurapi is recommended to be injected underneath the skin of the upper arm, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The injection site should be different with each injection.

    Follow the storage instructions that come with your prescription. If you have any questions about storage, talk to your pharmacist.


    Insulin aspart is the active ingredient in Trurapi.


    Patients who are allergic to insulin aspart or to any of the other ingredients in the medication or container should not use Trurapi.

    Patients who are experiencing active low blood sugar should not use Trurapi.


    Serious Warnings and Precautions regarding Trurapi include:

    • The most common side effect of insulin: low blood sugar
    • Uncorrected low or high blood sugar reactions can result in unconsciousness, coma, or death
    • Transferring of insulin products should be made with caution and under the supervision of a healthcare provider
    • Some insulin products are short-acting and have a rapid onset and short duration of action. A meal should follow these types of insulin (within 5-10 minutes) or the insulin should be given immediately after a meal.
    • Short-acting insulin should be used with insulin that is longer-acting in order to adequately manage blood sugar levels.
    • Insulin products should not be mixed with other insulin products unless there is a clear indication and it is done under medical supervision.
    • Insulin products should not be used if the solution is not water-clear and colorless or if there are solid particles on the wall of the container.
    • Before you start using Trurapi, be sure you talk to your doctor about:
      • All the prescription and over-the-counter medications you take
      • Your allergies
      • Your past medical history and current health problems
      • Your pregnancy or breastfeeding status
    • Trurapi can cause low potassium levels in the blood.
    • Trurapi can cause injection site reactions such as pain, redness, itching, hives, swelling, bruising, and inflammation.
    • Trurapi can cause depression in the skin, thickening of the skin tissue, or lumps in the skin.
    • Although it’s rare, a systemic allergic reaction can occur with Trurapi use. Patients should seek emergency care if they have trouble breathing; swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat; a rapid heart rate; or any other serious reaction.
    • Pens and needles should not be shared.
    • Appropriately dispose of pens and needles after use.

    Side Effects

    Low blood sugar and injection site reactions are common side effects of Trurapi; however, these are not all the side effects that can occur. Contact your doctor right away if you develop side effects that bother you or won’t go away.
