About Novolin R

What is Novolin R?

Novolin R is regular insulin prescribed, along with diet and exercise, to treat Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in those who cannot control it with oral medications. It is takes the place of insulin in those whose bodies do not produce enough.

Before using this medication the first time, ask your healthcare provider to demonstrate the proper technique, and then monitor your first injection; discuss with your doctor the best location for an injection. Use only syringes rated for this particular product. Be sure to follow your doctor’s diet and exercise program. Novolin R will not cure diabetes; continue to use it even if you feel well. Discuss with your doctor guidelines for checking your blood sugar levels. Do not stop using it without your doctor’s written permission.
