Do not change the type of insulin you use unless told to do so by your health care provider. The amount of insulin you take as well as the best time for you to take your insulin may need to change if you take a different type of insulin.
Never mix Levemir(R) with other insulin products or use in an insulin pump.
Do not take Levemir(R) if your blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia) or if you are allergic to anything in Levemir(R). If you take too much Levemir(R) your blood sugar may fall too low.
Tell your health care provider about all medicines you take and all of your medical conditions, including if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Your Levemir(R) dose may change if you take other medicines.
The most common side effect of insulin therapy, including Levemir(R) is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Other possible side effects include reactions at the injection site (like redness, swelling and itching), and allergic reactions. Get medical help right away if you experience signs of serious allergic reaction such as body rash, trouble with your breathing, fast heartbeat, or sweating. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for further information.
