The outer cartons of Humulin have been changed and color-coded to distinguish what type of insulin is in the vials. Pen fill cartridges have also been color-coded like the vials.

Sounds like everyone's been doing package updating!

Re: Humulin Package Changes
I wondered what everyone was talking about. I have been using Humulin N since August 06 and your "new" packaging is the only one I have ever seen here in Australia???? It does make sense to have the packaging the same in all countries, I wonder why it was different.

Re: Humulin Package Changes
I just found this from the UK. You can tell how long ago this was new, as both Humulin L and Humulin Zn (Ultralente) are on the list. It looks as though they are finally making their packages and labels international.


This is from Lilly, UK, and dates back to September 2003. You can see the similarities between this "new" UK packaging then and the current US package changes.


Humulin I (isophane) is Humulin N in North America



Humulin S (soluble) is Humulin R here



Humulin M3 is Humulin 70/30



Humulin M5 is Humulin 50/50, even though Lilly stopped selling M5 in the UK and EU in 2004.
