Here’s how to help anyone who brings a U-500 prescription to your pharmacy
For patients new to Humulin R U-500:
- New dosing regimen: High dose* insulin patients may welcome a regimen of 2 or 3 injections a day† with the U-500 KwikPen.
- Patient education: The patient needs to understand how this insulin is similar or different compared to insulins they used in the past
The makers of U-500 want you to be ready to counsel these patients, tell them what they need to know, and still have time to help all the other people you see each day. We hope the enclosed tools can make it a little easier for you to inform, educate, and support these high-dose insulin patients.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call The Lilly Answers Center at 1-800-LillyRx (1-800-545-5979).
