Insulin Lispro Injection U-100

Just like Humalog® (insulin lispro) U-100, Lilly’s Insulin Lispro Injection is a fast-acting insulin that helps control the blood sugar spikes that happen naturally when you eat. Insulin Lispro Injection is taken 15 minutes before or immediately after a meal. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is a possible side effect of Humalog which may be severe and cause unconsciousness (passing out), seizures, and death. Test blood sugar levels as your healthcare provider instructs. For many commercially insured patients, Humalog may still be less expensive than Lilly’s Insulin Lispro Injection.*

*Patients should consider formulary status of all medications they may be taking when making enrollment decisions.

  1. If you haven’t got the money to pay for a doctor’s visit every month they don’t help you! The only way you get help with insulin is to see a doctor each month because the insulin comes through the doctors office!!
