Novolin 70/30 (NPH insulin/regular insulin) is a diabetes medication that is available without a prescription. It contains a combination of 70 percent NPH insulin (an intermediate-acting insulin) and 30 percent regular insulin (a short-acting insulin). It is typically taken twice a day before meals.
Novolin 70/30 is made by Novo Nordisk. At this time, there are no generic versions of Novolin 70/30 or any other insulin medications. Other insulin mixtures are available, but none of them are equivalent to Novolin 70/30, and, more importantly, none of them are generic medications.
NovoLog (insulin aspart) is a prescription form of insulin used to treat type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. It is a rapid-acting insulin, used to help control the spike in blood sugar that occurs after meals. It is typically used in combination with a long-acting insulin. NovoLog can also be used in an insulin pump and can be given intravenously (by IV).
This article refers to plain NovoLog. NovoLog is also available in combination with an intermediate-acting insulin (NovoLog Mix 70/30 or NovoLog Mix 50/50).
It is not recommended to use Novolog without seeking advice from your doc., please take care.
