This medicine is a fast-acting form of the hormone insulin used for treating diabetes mellitus.
CAUTIONS: DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE if you are allergic to any ingredient in this medicine. DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED DOSE, use this medicine more often than prescribed, or change the type or dose of insulin you are using without checking with your doctor. Lab tests may be performed to monitor your progress or to check for side effects. KEEP ALL DOCTOR AND LABORATORY APPOINTMENTS. BEFORE YOU HAVE ANY MEDICAL OR DENTAL TREATMENTS, emergency care, or surgery, tell the doctor or dentist that you are taking this medicine. DROWSINESS, DIZZINESS, LIGHT-HEADEDNESS, OR BLURRED VISION MAY OCCUR while you use this medicine. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use this medicine with caution. Do not drive or perform other potentially unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it. DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL without discussing with your doctor. ANY CHANGE OF INSULIN should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision. Changes in purity, strength, brand (manufacturer), type (regular, NPH, lente), species (beef, pork, beef-pork, human), and/or method of manufacture may require a change in dose. ILLNESS, ESPECIALLY WITH NAUSEA AND VOMITING, may cause your insulin requirements to change. Even if you are not eating, you still require insulin. You and your doctor should establish a sick-day plan to use in case of illness. When you are sick, test your blood/urine frequently and call your doctor as instructed. AN INSULIN REACTION resulting from low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) may occur if you take too much insulin, skip a meal, or exercise too much. Signs of hypoglycemia include increased heartbeat, headache, chills, sweating, tremor, increased hunger, changes in vision, nervousness, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, or fainting. It is a good habit to carry glucose tablets or gel to treat low blood sugar. If you do not have a reliable source of glucose available, eat a quick source of sugar such as table sugar, honey, candy, or drink a glass of orange juice or non-diet soda to quickly raise your blood sugar level. TELL YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY about the reaction. DEVELOPING A FEVER OR INFECTION, eating significantly more than prescribed, or missing your dose of insulin may cause high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). High blood sugar may make you feel confused, drowsy, or thirsty. It can also make you flush, breathe faster, or have a fruit-like breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell you doctor right away. BEFORE YOU BEGIN TAKING ANY NEW MEDICINE, either prescription or over-the-counter, check with your doctor or pharmacist. CAUTION IS ADVISED when using this medicine in the ELDERLY and in CHILDREN because they may be more sensitive to its effects. If low blood sugar occurs, it may be more difficult to recognize in elderly patients. FOR WOMEN: IF YOU BECOME PREGNANT, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using this medicine during pregnancy. IT IS UNKNOWN IF THIS MEDICINE IS EXCRETED in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding, check with your doctor to discuss the benefits and risks to your baby.
