NovoMix 30 Patient Insert

Why have you been given NovoMix 30?

NovoMix 30 is an antidiabetic agent used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus as it reduces the level of sugar in the blood and urine. To control your diabetes, your doctor has prescribed injections of NovoMix 30.

When injected under your skin (subcutaneously), the onset of action will occur within 10 to 20 minutes of injection, the maximum effect is between 1 and 4 hours and the effect lasts for up to 24 hours.


Availability of NovoMix 30

NovoMix 30 is available a 3 mL Penfill cartridge, (designed for use with Novo Nordisk Insulin Delivery Devices).

NovoMix 30 Penfill cartridges are especially designed for use with Novo Nordisk Insulin Delivery Devices and NovoFine needles. Novo Nordisk cannot be held responsible for malfunctions occurring as a consequence of using NovoMix 30 Penfill cartridges in combination with products that do not meet the same specifications or quality standards.


Before you take NovoMix 30

You should not take NovoMix 30

  • If your blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia). Follow the guidelines for hypoglycemia.

  • If you are allergic to insulin aspart or any of the ingredients contained in NovoMix 30 (check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure).

  • NovoMix 30 should be given immediately before a meal. When necessary, NovoMix 30 may be given soon after a meal.


Dosage

Follow carefully the instructions given by your doctor concerning type of insulin, dose, and time of injection. Any change in insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision. Your insulin requirements may change due to a number of factors (illness, stress, medications, changes in diet or exercise routines, etc.). Follow your doctor’s instructions to allow for these changes. The following can be considered as general guidelines only and you should consult your doctor for information, which is specific to your diabetes.


Can NovoMix 30 be taken with other medicines?

A number of drugs are known to influence insulin requirement. Therefore, if you are taking any other medication, (including over the counter medication), please consult your doctor.


What do you have to consider during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant you should see your doctor immediately to discuss your need for and type of insulin in order to control your diabetes and avoid hyperglycemia (too high blood sugar) and hypoglycemia (too low blood sugar) as these conditions could harm your baby.

There is limited clinical experience with insulin aspart in pregnancy.

Breastfeeding while you are taking insulin does not put your baby at risk. Your insulin dosage and diet may, however, need to be adjusted.


Alcohol use

Alcohol (including beer and wine) may lead to hypoglycemia (too low blood sugar). Therefore, be careful when you drink alcohol and never drink alcohol on an empty stomach. Follow your physician’s advice regarding diet and alcohol consumption.


What should be done during an illness?

Never stop taking insulin if you are ill. Your need for insulin may, however, be changed.

If you have an infection, fever or an operation you may need to have more insulin than usual.

If you suffer from diarrhea, vomiting or eat less than usual you may also need less insulin than usual.


What about travelling?

The time difference between countries may mean that you have to take your insulin and meals at different times than usual. You should therefore consult your doctor if you are planning to go abroad or travel across time zones.


Is NovoMix 30 available in other countries?

Before you travel, check with your physician or pharmacist on availability of NovoMix 30 in other countries. If possible, bring enough NovoMix 30 with you on your trip.


How to use NovoMix 30 Penfill

Before using your NovoMix 30 Penfill

  • Do not use NovoMix 30 Penfill if it does not appear uniformly white and cloudy when rolled between your palms and turned upside down. The cartridge should not be used if clumps of material are present or if solid white particles stick to the bottom or wall of the cartridge, giving a frosted appearance.

  • Before use, check that the Penfill cartridge is intact (no cracks). Do not use the Penfill cartridge if any damage is seen or if more of the rubber piston is visible than equal to the width of the white bar code band.

  • To avoid possible transmission of disease, a NovoMix 30 Penfill cartridge must not be used by more than one person.

  • Remove and dispose of the needle after each use. If the needle is not removed, temperature changes may cause liquid to leak out of the needle and the insulin concentration may change.

  • Do not refill NovoMix 30 Penfill.

  • Do not use NovoMix 30 Penfill in insulin pumps.

  • If you switch from another insulin to NovoMix 30, please consult your doctor, as your dosage may need to be adjusted.

  • Always use a new needle for each injection to prevent contamination.


General information on use of NovoMix 30

  • Before injection, make sure that you have got the type and strength of insulin prescribed.

  • NovoMix 30 is for injection under the skin (subcutaneously). NovoMix 30 should not be injected intravenously.

  • You will feel the effect more quickly if the insulin is injected into your abdomen. However, injections may also be given in your thigh, upper arm or buttock.

  • It is recommended that you eat a meal or snack containing carbohydrate within 10 minutes of the injection.

  • When necessary NovoMix 30 may be given soon after the meal.

  • If you are treated with NovoMix 30 Penfill and another insulin in Penfill cartridge, you should use two Novo Nordisk Insulin Delivery Devices, one for each type of insulin.


NovoMix 30 Penfill:

Before insertion into a Novo Nordisk Insulin Delivery Device

Allow the NovoMix 30 Penfill cartridge to reach room temperature and then roll it horizontally between your palms 10 times.

Then turn the cartridge upside down 10 times so that the glass ball inside Penfill moves from one end of the insulin cartridge to the other. Then rolling and turning procedure must be repeated until the liquid appears uniformly white and cloudy.

Inject immediately.


Before each injection

If the Penfill cartridge is already inside the Nov Nordisk Insulin Delivery Device turn the device upside down 10 times so that the glass ball inside Penfill moves from one end of the insulin cartridge to the other. The turning procedure must be repeated until the liquid appears uniformly white and cloudy.

Injection immediately.


Injection procedure

Follow the instructions of your physician or healthcare professional on how to make injections. Read the instruction manual for the Insulin Delivery Device carefully in order to prepare your NovoMix 30 Penfill and operate the device correctly.

After injection, the needle should remain under the skin for at least 6 seconds. Keep the push button fully depressed until the needle has been withdrawn from the skin. This will ensure correct delivery of the dose and limit possible flow of blood or other body fluids into the needle or insulin cartridge.
