Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Hypoglycemia may occur as a result of an excess of insulin relative to food intake, energy expenditure, or both. Mild episodes of hypoglycemia usually can be treated with oral glucose. Adjustments in drug dosage, meal patterns, or exercise, may be needed. More severe episodes with coma, seizure, or neurologic impairment may be treated with intramuscular/subcutaneous gluca­gon or concentrated intravenous glucose. Sustained carbohydrate intake and observation may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

NovoLog® Mix 50/50 (50% insulin aspart protamine suspension and 50% insulin aspart injection) is contraindicated during episodes of hypoglycemia and in patients hypersensitive to NovoLog® Mix 50/50 (50% insulin aspart protamine suspension and 50% insulin aspart injection) or any of the excipients.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
