I was prescribed these two insulins by a new doctor but all of the research I have done says that you're not supposed to take novolog 70/30 with any other insulin... so I am wondering what will happen with this rx?
It is Very common for both to be prescribed together.
The Levimeir is a long acting insulin that you take once every day & last 24 hours.
Apparently your blood sugars have been running high.
They prescribe the Novolog as a short acting insulin to prevent sugar spikes when you eat.
You need to make sure to inject within 10-15 minutes BEFORE you eat. It is important though to take the shot Before eating or it will not work properly.
I use Lantus long acting insulin once a day & then the Novolog before meals & have for a few years. They may need to increase your dosage at first to see if the dose is what you need.
Best of luck to you. Kathy
