Product Label Table of Contents



1 Indications And Usage



HUMULIN N is an intermediate-acting recombinant human insulin indicated to improve glycemic control in adults and pediatric patients with diabetes mellitus.


2.1 Important Administration Instructions



Inspect HUMULIN N visually before use. It should not contain particulate matter and should appear uniformly cloudy after mixing. Do not use HUMULIN N if particulate matter is seen.

Use HUMULIN N KwikPen with caution in patients with visual impairment that may rely on audible clicks to dial their dose.


2.2 Route Of Administration



HUMULIN N should only be administered subcutaneously.

Administer in the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall, thigh, upper arm, or buttocks. Rotate injection sites within the same region from one injection to the next to reduce the risk of lipodystrophy and localized cutaneous amyloidosis. Do not inject into areas of lipodystrophy or localized cutaneous amyloidosis [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2) and Adverse Reactions (6)]. During changes to a patient's insulin regimen, increase the frequency of blood glucose monitoring [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].

The HUMULIN N KwikPen dials in 1 unit increments.

Do not administer HUMULIN N intravenously or intramuscularly and do not use HUMULIN N in an insulin infusion pump.


2.3 Dosage Information



Individualize and adjust the dosage of HUMULIN N based on the individual's metabolic needs, blood glucose monitoring results and glycemic control goal.

Dosage adjustments may be needed with changes in physical activity, changes in meal patterns (i.e., macronutrient content or timing of food intake), changes in renal or hepatic function or during acute illness [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2, 5.3), and Use in Specific Populations (8.6, 8.7)].


2.4 Dosage Adjustment Due To Drug Interactions



Dosage adjustment may be needed when HUMULIN N is coadministered with certain drugs [see Drug Interactions (7)].

Dosage adjustment may be needed when switching from another insulin to HUMULIN N [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].


Other



Instructions for Mixing with Other Insulins

HUMULIN N may be used with a prandial insulin if indicated. HUMULIN N may be mixed with HUMULIN R or HUMALOG before injection.

  • If HUMULIN N is mixed with HUMULIN R, HUMULIN R should be drawn into the syringe first. Injection should occur immediately after mixing.
  • If HUMULIN N is mixed with HUMALOG, HUMALOG should be drawn into the syringe first. Injection should occur immediately after mixing.
  • Risk Factors for Hypoglycemia

    The risk of hypoglycemia after an injection is related to the duration of action of the insulin and, in general, is highest when the glucose lowering effect of the insulin is maximal. As with all insulin preparations, the glucose lowering effect time course of HUMULIN N may vary in different individuals or at different times in the same individual and depends on many conditions, including the area of injection as well as the injection site blood supply and temperature [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.2)]. Other factors which may increase the risk of hypoglycemia include changes in meal pattern (e.g., macronutrient content or timing of meals), changes in level of physical activity, or changes to co-administered medication [see Drug Interactions (7)]. Patients with renal or hepatic impairment may be at higher risk of hypoglycemia [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6, 8.7)].

    Risk Mitigation Strategies for Hypoglycemia

    Patients and caregivers must be educated to recognize and manage hypoglycemia. Self-monitoring of blood glucose plays an essential role in the prevention and management of hypoglycemia. In patients at higher risk for hypoglycemia and patients who have reduced symptomatic awareness of hypoglycemia, increased frequency of blood glucose monitoring is recommended.

    Allergic Reactions

    Some patients taking HUMULIN N have experienced erythema, local edema, and pruritus at the site of injection. These conditions were usually self-limiting. Severe cases of generalized allergy (anaphylaxis) have been reported [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)].

    Peripheral Edema

    Some patients taking HUMULIN N have experienced sodium retention and edema, particularly if previously poor metabolic control is improved by intensified insulin therapy.

    Lipodystrophy

    Administration of insulin subcutaneously, including HUMULIN N, has resulted in lipoatrophy (depression in the skin) or lipohypertrophy (enlargement or thickening of tissue) [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)] in some patients.

    Localized Cutaneous Amyloidosis

    Localized cutaneous amyloidosis at the injection site has occurred. Hyperglycemia has been reported with repeated insulin injections into areas of localized cutaneous amyloidosis; hypoglycemia has been reported with a sudden change to an unaffected injection site.

    Weight gain

    Weight gain has occurred with some insulin therapies including HUMULIN N and has been attributed to the anabolic effects of insulin and the decrease in glycosuria.

    Immunogenicity

    Development of antibodies that react with human insulin have been observed with all insulin, including HUMULIN N.

    Risk Summary

    Available data from published studies over decades have not established an association with human insulin use during pregnancy and major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes (see Data). There are risks to the mother and fetus associated with poorly controlled diabetes in pregnancy (see Clinical Considerations). Animal reproduction studies were not performed.

    The estimated background risk of major birth defects is 6-10% in women with pre-gestational diabetes with a HbA1c >7% and has been reported to be as high as 20-25% in women with a HbA1c >10%. The estimated background risk of miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2-4% and 15-20%, respectively.

    Clinical Considerations

    Disease-associated maternal and/or embryo/fetal risk

    Poorly controlled diabetes in pregnancy increases the maternal risk for diabetic ketoacidosis, pre-eclampsia, spontaneous abortions, preterm delivery, and delivery complications. Poorly controlled diabetes increases the fetal risk for major birth defects, stillbirth, and macrosomia-related morbidity.

    Data

    Human Data

    While available studies cannot definitively establish the absence of risk, published data from retrospective studies, open-label, randomized, parallel studies and meta-analyses over decades have not established an association with human insulin use during pregnancy and major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes. All available studies have methodological limitations, including lack of blinding, unclear methods or randomization, and small sample size.

    Risk Summary

    Available data from published literature suggests that exogenous human insulin products, including HUMULIN N, are transferred into human milk. There are no adverse reactions reported in breastfed infants in the literature. There are no data on the effects of exogenous human insulin products, including HUMULIN N on milk production. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for HUMULIN N and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from HUMULIN N or from the underlying maternal condition.

    Absorption — In healthy subjects given subcutaneous doses of HUMULIN N (0.4 unit/kg), median peak serum concentration of insulin occurred at approximately 4 hours (range: 1 to 12 hours) after dosing.

    Metabolism — The uptake and degradation of insulin occurs predominantly in liver, kidney, muscle, and adipocytes, with the liver being the major organ involved in the clearance of insulin.

    Elimination — Because of the absorption-rate limited kinetics of insulin mixtures, a true half-life cannot be accurately estimated from the terminal slope of the concentration versus time curve. In healthy subjects given subcutaneous doses of HUMULIN N (0.4 unit/kg), the mean apparent half-life was approximately 4.4 hours (range: 1-84 hours).

    Specific Populations

    The effects of age, gender, race, obesity, pregnancy, or smoking on the pharmacokinetics of HUMULIN N have not been studied.

    Careful glucose monitoring and dose adjustments of insulin, including HUMULIN N, may be necessary in patients with renal or hepatic dysfunction [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6, 8.7)].

    Never Share a HUMULIN N KwikPen or Syringe Between Patients

    Advise patients that they must never share a HUMULIN N KwikPen with another person, even if the needle is changed. Advise patients using HUMULIN N vials not to share needles or syringes with another person. Sharing poses a risk for transmission of blood-borne pathogens [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

    Hyperglycemia or Hypoglycemia

    Instruct patients on self-management procedures including glucose monitoring, proper injection technique, and management of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia especially at initiation of HUMULIN N therapy. Instruct patients on handling of special situations such as intercurrent conditions (illness, stress, or emotional disturbances), an inadequate or skipped insulin dose, inadvertent administration of an increased insulin dose, inadequate food intake, and skipped meals. Instruct patients on the management of hypoglycemia.

    Inform patients that their ability to concentrate and react may be impaired as a result of hypoglycemia. Advise patients who have frequent hypoglycemia or reduced or absent warning signs of hypoglycemia to use caution when driving or operating machinery [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

    Advise patients that changes in insulin regimen can predispose to hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia and that changes in insulin regimen should be made under close medical supervision [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].

    Inform patients that accidental mix-ups between HUMULIN N and other insulins have been reported. Instruct patients to always carefully check that they are administering the correct insulin (e.g., by checking the insulin label before each injection) to avoid medication errors between HUMULIN N and other insulins.

    Hypersensitivity Reactions

    Advise patients that hypersensitivity reactions have occurred with HUMULIN N. Inform patients on the symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)].

    Visual Inspection Prior to Use

    Instruct patients to visually inspect HUMULIN N before use and to use HUMULIN N only if it contains no particulate matter and appears uniformly cloudy after mixing [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)].

3 Dosage Forms And Strengths



HUMULIN N injectable suspension: 100 units per mL (U-100) is a white and cloudy suspension available as:

  • 10 mL multiple-dose vial
  • 3 mL multiple-dose vial
  • 3 mL single-patient-use HUMULIN N KwikPen

4 Contraindications



HUMULIN N is contraindicated:

  • During episodes of hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)], and
  • In patients who have had hypersensitivity reactions to HUMULIN N or any of its excipients [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)].

5.1 Never Share A Humulin N Kwikpen Or Syringe Between Patients



HUMULIN N KwikPens must never be shared between patients, even if the needle is changed. Patients using HUMULIN N vials must never share needles or syringes with another person. Sharing poses a risk for transmission of blood-borne pathogens.


5.2 Hyperglycemia Or Hypoglycemia With Changes In Insulin Regimen



Changes in an insulin regimen (e.g., insulin strength, manufacturer, type, injection site or method of administration) may affect glycemic control and predispose to hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)] or hyperglycemia. Repeated insulin injections into areas of lipodystrophy or localized cutaneous amyloidosis have been reported to result in hyperglycemia; and a sudden change in the injection site (to an unaffected area) has been reported to result in hypoglycemia [see Adverse Reactions (6)].

Make any changes to a patient's insulin regimen under close medical supervision with increased frequency of blood glucose monitoring. Advise patients who have repeatedly injected into areas of lipodystrophy or localized cutaneous amyloidosis to change the injection site to unaffected areas and closely monitor for hypoglycemia. For patients with type 2 diabetes, dosage adjustments of concomitant antidiabetic products may be needed.


5.3 Hypoglycemia



Hypoglycemia is the most common adverse reaction associated with insulins, including HUMULIN N. Severe hypoglycemia can cause seizures, may be life-threatening or cause death. Hypoglycemia can impair concentration ability and reaction time; this may place an individual and others at risk in situations where these abilities are important (e.g., driving or operating other machinery).

Hypoglycemia can happen suddenly and symptoms may differ in each individual and change over time in the same individual. Symptomatic awareness of hypoglycemia may be less pronounced in patients with longstanding diabetes, in patients with diabetic nerve disease, in patients using medications that block the sympathetic nervous system (e.g., beta-blockers) [see Drug Interactions (7)], or in patients who experience recurrent hypoglycemia.


5.4 Hypersensitivity Reactions



Severe, life-threatening, generalized allergy, including anaphylaxis, can occur with insulin products, including HUMULIN N. If hypersensitivity reactions occur, discontinue HUMULIN N; treat per standard of care and monitor until symptoms and signs resolve [see Adverse Reactions (6)]. HUMULIN N is contraindicated in patients who have had hypersensitivity reactions to HUMULIN N or any of its excipients [see Contraindications (4)].


5.5 Hypokalemia



All insulin products, including HUMULIN N, cause a shift in potassium from the extracellular to intracellular space, possibly leading to hypokalemia. Untreated hypokalemia may cause respiratory paralysis, ventricular arrhythmia, and death. Monitor potassium levels in patients at risk for hypokalemia if indicated (e.g., patients using potassium-lowering medications, patients taking medications sensitive to serum potassium concentrations).


5.6 Fluid Retention And Heart Failure With Concomitant Use Of Ppar-Gamma Agonists



Thiazolidinediones (TZDs), which are peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma agonists, can cause dose-related fluid retention, particularly when used in combination with insulin. Fluid retention may lead to or exacerbate heart failure. Patients treated with insulin, including HUMULIN N, and a PPAR-gamma agonist should be observed for signs and symptoms of heart failure. If heart failure develops, it should be managed according to current standards of care, and discontinuation or dose reduction of the PPAR-gamma agonist must be considered.


6 Adverse Reactions



The following adverse reactions are discussed elsewhere in the labeling:

  • Hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].
  • Hypokalemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5)].
  • The following additional adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of HUMULIN N. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or to establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.


7.1 Drugs That May Increase The Risk Of Hypoglycemia



The risk of hypoglycemia associated with HUMULIN N use may be increased when co-administered with antidiabetic agents, salicylates, sulfonamide antibiotics, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, fluoxetine, disopyramide, fibrates, pentoxifylline, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blocking agents, and somatostatin analogs (e.g., octreotide). Dose adjustment and increased frequency of glucose monitoring may be required when HUMULIN N is co-administered with these drugs.


7.2 Drugs That May Decrease The Blood Glucose Lowering Effect Of Humulin N



The glucose lowering effect of HUMULIN N may be decreased when co-administered with corticosteroids, isoniazid, niacin, estrogens, oral contraceptives, phenothiazines, danazol, diuretics, sympathomimetic agents (e.g., epinephrine, albuterol, terbutaline), somatropin, atypical antipsychotics, glucagon, protease inhibitors, and thyroid hormones. Dose adjustment and increased frequency of glucose monitoring may be required when HUMULIN N is co-administered with these drugs.


7.3 Drugs That May Increase Or Decrease The Blood Glucose Lowering Effect Of Humulin N



The glucose lowering effect of HUMULIN N may be increased or decreased when co-administered with beta-blockers, clonidine, lithium salts, and alcohol. Pentamidine may cause hypoglycemia, which may sometimes be followed by hyperglycemia. Dose adjustment and increased frequency of glucose monitoring may be required when HUMULIN N is co-administered with these drugs.


7.4 Drugs That May Blunt Signs And Symptoms Of Hypoglycemia



The signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)] may be blunted when beta-blockers, clonidine, guanethidine, and reserpine are co-administered with HUMULIN N.


8.4 Pediatric Use



HUMULIN N has not been studied in pediatric patients. As in adults, the dosage of HUMULIN N in pediatric patients must be individualized based on metabolic needs, treatment goal and blood glucose monitoring results.


8.5 Geriatric Use



The effect of age on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of HUMULIN N has not been studied [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Patients with advanced age using any insulin, including HUMULIN N, may be at increased risk of hypoglycemia due to co-morbid disease and polypharmacy [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].


8.6 Renal Impairment



The effect of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of HUMULIN N has not been studied [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Patients with renal impairment are at increased risk of hypoglycemia and may require more frequent HUMULIN N dose adjustment and more frequent blood glucose monitoring.


8.7 Hepatic Impairment



The effect of hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of HUMULIN N has not been studied [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Patients with hepatic impairment are at increased risk of hypoglycemia and may require more frequent HUMULIN N dose adjustment and more frequent blood glucose monitoring.


10 Overdosage



Excess insulin administration may cause hypoglycemia and hypokalemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3, 5.5)]. Mild episodes of hypoglycemia can be treated with oral glucose. Adjustments in drug dosage, meal patterns, or physical activity level may be needed. More severe episodes with coma, seizure, or neurologic impairment may be treated with intramuscular/subcutaneous glucagon or concentrated intravenous glucose. Sustained carbohydrate intake and observation may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery. Hypokalemia must be corrected appropriately.


11 Description



HUMULIN N (isophane insulin human suspension) is an intermediate-acting human insulin. Human insulin is produced by recombinant DNA technology utilizing a non-pathogenic laboratory strain of Escherichia coli. HUMULIN N is a suspension of crystals produced from combining human insulin and protamine sulfate under appropriate conditions for crystal formation. The amino acid sequence of HUMULIN N is identical to human insulin and has the empirical formula C257H383N65O77S6 with a molecular weight of 5808.

HUMULIN N is a sterile, white and cloudy suspension that contains isophane insulin human suspension (NPH) for subcutaneous use. Each milliliter of HUMULIN N contains 100 units of insulin human, 0.35 mg of protamine sulfate, 16 mg of glycerin, 3.78 mg of dibasic sodium phosphate, 1.6 mg of metacresol, 0.65 mg of phenol, zinc oxide content adjusted to provide 0.025 mg zinc ion, and Water for Injection. The pH is 7.0 to 7.5. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added during manufacture to adjust the pH.


12.1 Mechanism Of Action



HUMULIN N lowers blood glucose by stimulating peripheral glucose uptake by skeletal muscle and fat, and by inhibiting hepatic glucose production. Insulins inhibit lipolysis and proteolysis, and enhance protein synthesis.


12.2 Pharmacodynamics



HUMULIN N is an intermediate-acting insulin with a slower onset of action and a longer duration of activity than that of regular human insulin. In a study in which healthy subjects (n=16) received subcutaneous injections of HUMULIN N (0.4 unit/kg) on 4 occasions, the median maximum effect occurred at 6.5 hours (range: 2.8 to 13 hours). In this study, insulin activity was measured by the rate of glucose infusions.

The time course of action of insulin, such as HUMULIN N may vary in different individuals or within the same individual. The parameters of HUMULIN N activity (time of onset, peak time, and duration) as designated in Figure 1 should be considered only as general guidelines. The rate of insulin absorption and consequently the onset of activity is known to be affected by the site of injection, physical activity level, and other variables [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

Figure 1: Mean Insulin Activity Versus Time Profile After Subcutaneous Injection of HUMULIN N (0.4 unit/kg) in Healthy Subjects.

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility

      • are pregnant, planning to become pregnant. Talk with your healthcare provider about the best way to control your blood sugar if you plan to become pregnant or while you are pregnant.
      • are breast-feeding or plan to breastfeed. HUMULIN N may pass into your breast milk. Talk with your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby while using HUMULIN N.
      • are taking new prescription or over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements.
      • Before you start using HUMULIN N, talk to your healthcare provider about low blood sugar and how to manage it.

        How should I use HUMULIN N?

        • Read the Instructions for Use that come with your HUMULIN N.
        • Use HUMULIN N exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to. HUMULIN N is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach area, buttocks, upper legs or upper arms. Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you choose with each dose to reduce your risk of getting lipodystrophy (pits in skin or thickened skin) and localized cutaneous amyloidosis (skin with lumps) at the injection sites. Do not use the exact same spot for each injection. Do not inject where the skin has pits, is thickened, or has lumps. Do not inject where the skin is tender, bruised, scaly or hard, or into scars or damaged skin.
        • Know the type and strength of insulin you use. Do not change the type of insulin you use unless your healthcare provider tells you to. The amount of insulin and the best time for you to take your insulin may need to change if you use different types of insulin.
        • Check your blood sugar levels. Ask your healthcare provider what your blood sugars should be and when you should check your blood sugar levels.
        • Do not share your HUMULIN N KwikPen or syringes with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
        • Your HUMULIN N dose may need to change because of:

          • change in level of physical activity or exercise, weight gain or loss, increased stress, illness, change in diet.
          • What should I avoid while using HUMULIN N?

            While using HUMULIN N do not:

            • drive or operate heavy machinery, until you know how HUMULIN N affects you.
            • drink alcohol or use prescription or over-the-counter medicines that contain alcohol.
            • What are the possible side effects of HUMULIN N?

              HUMULIN N may cause serious side effects that can lead to death, including:

              • low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Signs and symptoms that may indicate low blood sugar include:
                • dizziness or light-headedness, sweating, confusion, headache, blurred vision, slurred speech, shakiness, fast heartbeat, anxiety, irritability, or mood changes, hunger.
                • serious allergic reaction (whole body reaction). Get medical help right away, if you have any of these symptoms of an allergic reaction:
                  • a rash over your whole body, trouble breathing, a fast heartbeat, or sweating.
                  • low potassium in your blood (hypokalemia).
                  • heart failure. Taking certain diabetes pills called thiazolidinediones or “TZDs” with HUMULIN N may cause heart failure in some people. This can happen even if you have never had heart failure or heart problems before. If you already have heart failure it may get worse while you take TZDs with HUMULIN N. Your healthcare provider should monitor you closely while you are taking TZDs with HUMULIN N. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any new or worse symptoms of heart failure including:
                  • shortness of breath, swelling of your ankles or feet, sudden weight gain.

                    Treatment with TZDs and HUMULIN N may need to be adjusted or stopped by your healthcare provider if you have new or worse heart failure.

                  • Get emergency medical help if you have:

                    • trouble breathing, shortness of breath, fast heartbeat, swelling of your face, tongue, or throat, sweating, extreme drowsiness, dizziness, confusion.
                    • The most common side effects of HUMULIN N include:

                      • low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), allergic reactions including reactions at the injection site, skin thickening or pits at the injection site (lipodystrophy), itching, rash, weight gain, and swelling of your hands and feet.
                      • These are not all the possible side effects of HUMULIN N. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

                        General information about the safe and effective use of HUMULIN N:

                        Medicines are sometimes prescribed for purposes other than those listed in a Patient Information leaflet. You can ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider for information about HUMULIN N that is written for health professionals. Do not use HUMULIN N for a condition for which it was not prescribed. Do not give HUMULIN N to other people, even if they have the same symptoms that you have. It may harm them.

Instructions For Use



Instructions for Use
HUMULIN® (HU-mu-lin) N
(isophane insulin human suspension)
multiple-dose vial (100 Units/mL, U-100)

Read the Instructions for Use before you start taking HUMULIN N and each time you get a new HUMULIN N vial. There may be new information. This information does not take the place of talking to your healthcare provider about your medical condition or your treatment.

Do not share your syringes with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.

Supplies needed to give your injection:

  • a multiple-dose HUMULIN N vial
  • a U-100 insulin syringe and needle
  • 2 alcohol swabs
  • 1 sharps container for throwing away used needles and syringes. See “Disposing of used needles and syringes” at the end of these instructions.
  • VialSyringe


    Preparing your HUMULIN N dose:

    • Wash your hands with soap and water.
    • Check the HUMULIN N label to make sure you are taking the right type of insulin. This is especially important if you use more than 1 type of insulin.
    • Do not use HUMULIN N past the expiration date printed on the label or 31 days after you first use it.
    • Always use a new syringe or needle for each injection to help ensure sterility and prevent blocked needles. Do not reuse or share your syringes or needles with other people. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
    • Step 1:
      Gently roll the vial between the palms of your hands at least 10 times.

      Step 2:
      Carefully invert the vial at least 10 times.
      Mixing is important to make sure you get the right dose. Humulin N should look white and cloudy after mixing. Do not use it if it looks clear or contains any lumps or particles.

      Step 3:
      If you are using a new vial, pull off the plastic Protective Cap, but do not remove the Rubber Stopper.

      Step 4:
      Wipe the Rubber Stopper with an alcohol swab.

      Step 5:
      Hold the syringe with the needle pointing up. Pull down on the Plunger until the tip of the Plunger reaches the line for the number of units for your prescribed dose.

      (Example Dose: 20 units shown)
      Step 6:
      Push the needle through the Rubber Stopper of the vial.

      Step 7:
      Push the plunger all the way in. This puts air into the vial.

      Step 8:
      Turn the vial and syringe upside down and slowly pull the Plunger down until the tip is a few units past the line for your prescribed dose.



      If there are air bubbles, tap the syringe gently a few times to let any air bubbles rise to the top.

      (Example Dose: 20 units Plunger is shown at 24 units)

      Step 9:
      Slowly push the Plunger up until the tip reaches the line for your prescribed dose.
      Check the syringe to make sure that you have the right dose.

      (Example Dose: 20 units shown)
      Step 10:
      Pull the syringe out of the vial's Rubber Stopper.

      Giving your HUMULIN N injection:

      • Inject your insulin exactly as your healthcare provider has shown you.
      • Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you choose for each dose to reduce your risk of getting lipodystrophy (pits in skin or thickened skin) and localized cutaneous amyloidosis (skin with lumps) at the injection sites. Do not inject where the skin has pits, is thickened, or has lumps. Do not inject where the skin is tender, bruised, scaly or hard, or into scars or damaged skin.
      • Step 11:
        Choose your injection site.
        HUMULIN N is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach area (abdomen), buttocks, upper legs or upper arms.
        Wipe the skin with an alcohol swab. Let the injection site dry before you inject your dose.

        Step 12:
        Insert the needle into your skin.

        Step 13:
        Push down on the Plunger to inject your dose.
        The needle should stay in your skin for at least 5 seconds to make sure you have injected all of your insulin dose.

        Step 14:
        Pull the needle out of your skin.
        • If you see blood after you take the needle out of your skin, press the injection site with a piece of gauze or an alcohol swab. Do not rub the area.
        • Do not recap the needle. Recapping the needle can lead to a needle stick injury.

        Disposing of used needles and syringes:

        • Put your used needles and syringes in a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not throw away (dispose of) loose needles and syringes in your household trash.
        • If you do not have a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that is:
          • - made of a heavy-duty plastic,
          • - can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid, without sharps being able to come out,
          • - upright and stable during use,
          • - leak-resistant, and
          • - properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container.
          • When your sharps disposal container is almost full, you will need to follow your community guidelines for the right way to dispose of your sharps disposal container. There may be state or local laws about how you should throw away used needles and syringes. For more information about safe sharps disposal, and for specific information about sharps disposal in the state that you live in, go to the FDA's website at: http://www.fda.gov/safesharpsdisposal
          • Do not dispose of your used sharps disposal container in your household trash unless your community guidelines permit this. Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container.
          • How should I store HUMULIN N?

                  HUMULIN® N KwikPen®

                  (isophane insulin human suspension)

                  100 units/mL, 3 mL single-patient-use pen

                  Read the Instructions for Use before you start taking HUMULIN N and each time you get another KwikPen. There may be new information. This information does not take the place of talking to your healthcare provider about your medical condition or your treatment.

                  Do not share your HUMULIN N KwikPen with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.

                  HUMULIN® N KwikPen® (“Pen”) is a disposable single-patient-use prefilled pen containing 300 units of HUMULIN N. You can give yourself more than 1 dose from the Pen. Each turn (click) of the Dose Knob dials 1 unit of insulin. You can give from 1 to 60 units in a single injection. If your dose is more than 60 units, you will need to give yourself more than 1 injection. The Plunger only moves a little with each injection, and you may not notice that it moves. The Plunger will only reach the end of the cartridge when you have used all 300 units in the Pen.

                  People who are blind or have vision problems should not use the Pen without help from a person trained to use the Pen.

                    • Preparing your Pen

                      • Wash your hands with soap and water.
                      • Check your Pen to make sure you are taking the right type of insulin. This is especially important if you use more than 1 type of insulin.
                      • Do not use your Pen past the expiration date printed on the Label or for more than 14 days after you first start using the Pen.
                      • Always use a new needle for each injection to help prevent infections and blocked needles. Do not reuse or share your needles with other people. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
                      • Do not remove the Pen Label.
                      • Wipe the Rubber Seal with an alcohol swab.
                      • Do not attach the Needle before mixing.
                        Step 1:
                        • Pull the Pen Cap straight off.
                        --

                        Step 2:
                        • Gently roll the Pen between your hands 10 times.

                        Step 3:
                        • Move the Pen up and down (invert) 10 times.
                          Mixing by rolling and inverting the Pen is important to make sure you get the right dose.

                        Step 4:
                        • Check the liquid in the Pen. HUMULIN N should look white and cloudy after mixing. Do not use if it looks clear or has any lumps or particles in it.
                        Step 5:
                        • Select a new Needle.
                        • Pull off the Paper Tab from the Outer Needle Shield.

                        Step 6:
                        • Push the capped Needle straight onto the Pen and twist the Needle on until it is tight.

                        Step 7:

                        • Pull off the Inner Needle Shield and throw it away.

                        Priming your Pen

                        Prime before each injection.

                        • Priming your Pen means removing the air from the Needle and Cartridge that may collect during normal use and ensures that the Pen is working correctly.
                        • If you do not prime before each injection, you may get too much or too little insulin.
                        • If you do not see insulin, repeat priming steps 8 to 10, no more than 4 times.
                        • If you still do not see insulin, change the Needle and repeat priming steps 8 to 10.
                          Small air bubbles are normal and will not affect your dose.
                          Step 8:
                          • To prime your Pen, turn the Dose Knob to select 2 units.

                          Step 9:
                          • Hold your Pen with the Needle pointing up. Tap the Cartridge Holder gently to collect air bubbles at the top.

                          Step 10:
                          • Continue holding your Pen with Needle pointing up. Push the Dose Knob in until it stops, and “0” is seen in the Dose Window. Hold the Dose Knob in and count to 5 slowly.
                          • You should see insulin at the tip of the Needle.
                          --



                          Selecting your dose

                          • You can give from 1 to 60 units in a single injection.
                          • If your dose is more than 60 units, you will need to give more than 1 injection.
                            • -If you need help with dividing up your dose the right way, ask your healthcare provider.
                            • -Use a new Needle for each injection and repeat the priming step.
                            • The Pen dials 1 unit at a time.
                            • The Dose Knob clicks as you turn it.
                            • Do not dial your dose by counting the clicks.You may dial the wrong dose. This may lead to you getting too much insulin or not enough insulin.
                            • The dose can be corrected by turning the Dose Knob in either direction until the correct dose lines up with the Dose Indicator.
                            • The even numbers (for example, 12) are printed on the dial.
                            • The odd numbers, (for example, 25) after the number 1, are shown as full lines.
                            • Always check the number in the Dose Window to make sure you have dialed the correct dose.
                            • Step 11:
                              • Turn the Dose Knob to select the number of units you need to inject. The Dose Indicator should line up with your dose.
                              ------



                              (Example: 12 units shown in the Dose Window)


                              (Example: 25 units shown in the Dose Window)
                              • The Pen will not let you dial more than the number of units left in the Pen.
                              • If you need to inject more than the number of units left in the Pen, you may either:
                                • -inject the amount left in your Pen and then use a new Pen to give the rest of your dose,
                                • or

                                  • -get a new Pen and inject the full dose.
                                  • It is normal to see a small amount of insulin left in the Pen that you can not inject.
                                  • Giving your injection

                                    • Inject your insulin as your healthcare provider has shown you.
                                    • Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you choose for each dose to reduce your risk of getting lipodystrophy (pits in skin or thickened skin) and localized cutaneous amyloidosis (skin with lumps) at the injection sites. Do not inject where the skin has pits, is thickened, or has lumps. Do not inject where the skin is tender, bruised, scaly or hard, or into scars or damaged skin.
                                    • Do not try to change your dose while injecting.
                                    • If you see “0” in the Dose Window, you have received the full amount you dialed.
                                    • If you do not see “0” in the Dose Window, do not redial. Insert the Needle into your skin and finish your injection.
                                    • If you still do not think you received the full amount you dialed for your injection, do not start over or repeat the injection. Monitor your blood glucose as instructed by your healthcare provider.
                                    • If you normally need to give 2 injections for your full dose, be sure to give your second injection.
                                      The Plunger only moves a little with each injection, and you may not notice that it moves.
                                      If you see blood after you take the Needle out of your skin, press the injection site lightly with a piece of gauze or an alcohol swab. Do not rub the area.
                                      Step 12:
                                      • Choose your injection site.
                                        HUMULIN N is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach area, buttocks, upper legs or upper arms.
                                      • Wipe your skin with an alcohol swab, and let your skin dry before you inject your dose.

                                      Step 13:
                                      • Insert the Needle into your skin.
                                      • Push the Dose Knob all the way in.
                                      • Continue to hold the Dose Knob in and slowly count to 5 before removing the Needle.

                                      • Do not try to inject your insulin by turning the Dose Knob. You will not receive your insulin by turning the Dose Knob.

                                      Step 14:
                                      • Pull the Needle out of your skin.
                                        A drop of insulin at the Needle tip is normal. It will not affect your dose.
                                      • Check the number in the Dose Window.
                                      ----

                                      After your injection

                                      Step 15:
                                      • Carefully replace the Outer Needle Shield.

                                      Step 16:
                                      • Unscrew the capped Needle and throw it away (see Disposing of Pens and Needles section).
                                      • Do not store the Pen with the Needle attached to prevent leaking, blocking the Needle, and air from entering the Pen.

                                      Step 17:
                                      • Replace the Pen Cap by lining up the Cap Clip with the Dose Indicator and pushing straight on.

                                      Disposing of Pens and Needles

                                      • Put your used needles in a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not throw away (dispose of) loose needles in your household trash.
                                      • If you do not have a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that is:
                                        • -made of a heavy-duty plastic,
                                        • -can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid, without sharps being able to come out,
                                        • -upright and stable during use,
                                        • -leak-resistant, and
                                        • -properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container.
                                        • When your sharps disposal container is almost full, you will need to follow your community guidelines for the right way to dispose of your sharps disposal container. There may be state or local laws about how you should throw away used needles and syringes. For more information about safe sharps disposal, and for specific information about sharps disposal in the state that you live in, go to the FDA's website at: http://www.fda.gov/safesharpsdisposal
                                        • Do not dispose of your used sharps disposal container in your household trash unless your community guidelines permit this. Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container.
                                        • The used Pen may be discarded in your household trash after you have removed the needle.
                                        • Storing your Pen

                                          Unused Pens

                                          • Store unused Pens in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C).
                                          • Do not freeze your insulin. Do not use if it has been frozen.
                                          • Unused Pens may be used until the expiration date printed on the Label, if the Pen has been kept in the refrigerator.
                                          • In-use Pen

                                            • Store the Pen you are currently using at room temperature [up to 86°F (30°C)]. Keep away from heat and light.
                                            • Throw away the HUMULIN N Pen you are using after 14 days, even if it still has insulin left in it.
                                            • General information about the safe and effective use of your Pen

                                              • Keep your Pen and needles out of the reach of children.
                                              • Do not use your Pen if any part looks broken or damaged.
                                              • Always carry an extra Pen in case yours is lost or damaged.
                                              • Troubleshooting

                                                • If you can not remove the Pen Cap, gently twist the cap back and forth, and then pull the cap straight off.
                                                • If the Dose Knob is hard to push:
                                                  • -Pushing the Dose Knob more slowly will make it easier to inject.
                                                  • -Your Needle may be blocked. Put on a new Needle and prime the Pen.
                                                  • -You may have dust, food, or liquid inside the Pen. Throw the Pen away and get a new Pen.
                                                  • If you have any questions or problems with your HUMULIN N KwikPen, contact Lilly at 1-800-LillyRx (1-800-545-5979) or call your healthcare provider for help. For more information on HUMULIN N KwikPen and insulin, go to www.lilly.com.
