Dosing Information

The Humulin® R U-500 (insulin human injection) 500 units/mL (U-500R) KwikPen® (pen) dials and doses the number of prescribed insulin units. The dose window shows the number of units of U-500R to be injected, and no dose conversion is required.1

The U-500R pen is specially designed to dial and deliver doses of U-500R insulin. Do not use any syringe to remove U-500R from the U-500R pen. The markings on certain syringes will not measure the dose correctly. An overdose may occur, causing severe hypoglycemia, putting the patient’s life in danger.2
