What is the difference between Fiasp and NovoLog?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 7 Nov 2017

Novo Nordisk’s Fiasp (insulin aspart) 100 Units/mL is a fast-acting mealtime insulin for use in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Fiasp is a new formulation of NovoLog, but the addition of niacinamide (vitamin B3) helps to increase the speed of the initial insulin absorption in roughly 2.5 minutes. Fiasp can be used at the beginning of a meal or within 20 minutes after starting a meal. It is available in a pre-filled pen and a 10 mL vial, and is priced similar to NovoLog.
