Generic Humalog Mix75/25

At this time, no generic Humalog Mix75/25 products are licensed for sale. Insulin medications are considered "biologic" medications. Although the rules for allowing generic biologics are changing, it's unclear when a generic version of Humalog Mix75/75 will become available.

Generic Humalog Mix75/25: An Overview

Humalog® Mix75/25 (insulin lispro protamine/insulin lispro) is a prescription diabetes medication. It contains a mixture of 25 percent insulin lispro (a rapid-acting insulin) and 75 percent insulin lispro protamine (an intermediate-acting insulin). It is taken just before meals, typically twice a day.
 
This medication is made by Eli Lilly and Company. At this time, there are no generic versions of Humalog Mix75/25 (or any other insulin medication) available. There are other insulin mixtures available, but none of them are equivalent to Humalog Mix75/25, and none of them are generic medications.
 

When Will Generic Humalog Mix75/25 Be Available?

Like all insulins, Humalog Mix75/25 is considered a "biologic" medication. In the past, generic biologics were not allowed by law. Although the laws have changed in order to allow manufacturers to make generic biologics, there is still some rulemaking to be done and practical matters to be worked out before such products enter the marketplace.
 
At this point, it is impossible to predict when exactly a generic version of Humalog Mix75/25 may ever be produced.
