Description

The NovoLog Penfill, recognized as NovoRapid in Canada, serves as an insulin pen cartridge. Each cartridge holds a 3 ml solution, amounting to 300 units. Specifically, every ml offers 100 units of insulin aspart, equivalent to 3.5 mg. When ordering, ensure you’re selecting the right cartridges, as several insulin brands, including Levemir, have their cartridge varieties. This insulin is essential for type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients, assisting in glucose management and hypoglycemia prevention. Typically, physicians recommend this quick-acting insulin around meal times to manage post-meal blood glucose spikes. NovoLog Penfill pairs exclusively with Novo Nordisk’s insulin delivery systems, functioning optimally with NovoFine or NovoTwist needles. For subcutaneous injections, utilize a reusable pen. However, for syringe or IV injections, turn to a vial; and for infusion pumps, either a vial or a NovoLog PumpCart is apt. NovoLog (NovoRapid) also comes in FlexPens and vials for broader usage options.

Additional information

Introduction

Introduction
-Novorapid (also known as Novolog) PenFill Cartridges contain insulin specifically designed for insulin injection pens, assisting in the regulation of high blood sugar fluctuations. While 'NovoLog' is its branded name, the chemical name is 'insulin aspart.' In Canada, this product goes by 'NovoRapid', which is what you'll receive when purchasing from us. Insulin aspart is a synthetic, rapid-acting insulin that starts its action approximately fifteen minutes post-injection and remains effective for about 3 to 5 hours. Each cartridge holds 3 mL of insulin aspart, and they come in packs of five.

Usage

Usage
-NovoLog (also known as NovoRapid) insulin starts reducing glucose levels within 10-20 minutes post-injection. It reaches its peak efficacy in 1-3 hours and maintains its effect for a duration of 3-5 hours. As a short-acting formula, it's typically paired with either intermediate or long-acting insulin.

Side Effects

Side Effects
While Insulin Aspart is generally well-tolerated, some potential side effects include:
– Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
– Weight gain
– Allergic reactions, including redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site
– Thickened or indented skin at the site of injection.
– Mood changes, or feeling anxious
Always seek advice from your medical professional if you notice any abnormal symptoms.

Storage

Storage
-Keep the cartridge in a cool and dry place, ensuring it remains unexposed to direct sunlight. Do not freeze. Once opened, store in a refrigerator or at room temperature below 30°C (86°F) and use within 28 days.

Overdose

Overdose
-Overdosing can result in severe hypoglycemia. Symptoms may include shakiness, dizziness, sweating, and a rapid heartbeat. If you suspect an overdose or experience severe symptoms, consume a quick source of sugar (like candy or fruit juice) immediately and seek medical attention.
