Novolin N Insulin Information

Novolin® N (NPH insulin) is an intermediate-acting form of human insulin used to help control blood sugar in people with diabetes. As an intermediate-acting insulin, it starts working more slowly, produces a lower peak, and lasts longer than regular human insulin. It is typically injected once or twice a day, before the morning and evening meals. Some of the most common side effects include low blood sugar and skin reactions at the injection site.
 
Because this form of insulin is not suitable for everyone, make sure to review the prescribing information on Novolin N before starting treatment. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are currently taking any other medications, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
