Insulin Lispro Protamine/Insulin Lispro

If you are an adult with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you may benefit from insulin lispro protamine/insulin lispro (Humalog® Mix50/50, Humalog® Mix75/25). This prescription drug contains a mixture of two different types of insulin -- one that is rapid-acting (insulin lispro) and one that is intermediate-acting (insulin lispro protamine). It starts working quickly and continues to work for several hours.
 
This drug is taken just before meals, typically twice a day. Ideally, by using this type of insulin, you can decrease the number of injections needed per day.
