What is Humulin® N?
Intermediate-acting insulin to cover blood sugar increases between meals and during the night
Humulin N is an intermediate acting insulin that is slower to act and lasts longer than regular human insulin. Humulin N is available in the prefilled Humulin® N KwikPen® or in a Humulin N U-100 vial.
Humulin N is injected under the skin. It should not be injected into muscle or veins. Doses of insulin are measured in units. U-100 insulins, including Humulin N, contain 100 units/mL. With the Humulin N U-100 vial, it is important to use a syringe that is marked for U-100 insulin preparations.
Do not use Humulin N:
- If the insulin substance (the white material) remains at the bottom of the bottle after mixing, or
- If there are clumps in the insulin after mixing
If you notice your insulin requirements changing, talk to your doctor.
Be sure to read the Patient Information that comes with your Humulin N insulin.

Pens and needles are for single-patient use only and should not be shared, even in healthcare facilities, as infection or disease can be spread from one person to another.
Do not withdraw insulin from the pen using a syringe.
