What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Hypurin-R is a fast-acting insulin that mimics the natural insulin produced by your pet's pancreas. It helps regulate blood sugar levels, allowing your pet to lead a healthier and happier life. Hypurin R acts fast to manage blood sugar right after meals. Vets may prescribe it for dogs or cats, and it works its best 2 to 3 hours after taking it, lasting for 3 to 6 hours.
Before you buy Hypurin Insulin for your pet and provide the necessary support they need to thrive despite their diabetes diagnosis, talk to your vet about their treatment plan.
Before starting Hypurin-R or making any changes to the treatment plan, consult your veterinarian.
Always check the insulin vial for any signs of damage or contamination before use. Roll the vial gently between your palms to mix the insulin but avoid shaking it vigorously to prevent foaming.
Use a U-40 insulin syringe or insulin pen as recommended by your veterinarian. Ensure that you are using the correct syringe or pen to measure the insulin accurately.
Your veterinarian will advise you on the appropriate injection site, typically in the subcutaneous tissue (under the skin) along your pet's back or side.
Coordinate your pet's feeding schedule with their insulin injections. Regularly monitor your pet's blood glucose levels as instructed by your veterinarian.
In case of a hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) episode, follow the emergency protocol provided by your veterinarian.
Hypurin-R insulin for pets contains the active ingredient insulin regular.
Let your vet know if your dog or cat has had liver or kidney issues, insulin problems, used steroids or hormones, or had bleeding disorders before using Hypurin-R for pets.
Insulin therapy can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) if not administered correctly or if the dosage is too high.
Consult your veterinarian before using Hypurin Porcine Isophane if your pet is pregnant.
Change where you give the shot each time to prevent lipodystrophy at the injection site.
Keep Hypurin-R for pets in the fridge at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C), or below 86°F (30°C) if it's in use. If you open a vial, use it within 42 days and store it under 77°F (25°C).
Hypurin-R may interact with other medications or health conditions that your pet may have. Some common interactions to be aware of include certain oral medications, corticosteroids or any underlying infections or illnesses. It is crucial to provide your veterinarian with a comprehensive list of your pet's medications and medical history to avoid potential interactions.
Common side effects of Hypurin Porcine Neutral may include weakness, confusion, shivering, seizures, reactions at the injection site, weight changes or change in appetite.
