Humulin and Humalog pens replaced

The manufacturer of Humalog® and Humulin® has written to healthcare professionals to advise that older style pre-filled insulin pens will be discontinued at the end of March 2011.

The affected products will continue to be available in a new pre-filled device called the KwikPen™. The affected products are as follows:

  • Humalog Pen
  • Humalog Mix 25 Pen
  • Humalog Mix 50 Pen
  • Humulin I Pen
  • Humulin M3 Pen

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this product withdrawal. Patients on the affected devices will need to be identified and changed to a suitable alternative.
