Levemir Users (Insulin) made by Novo Nordisk Inc.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reminding the public that stolen vials of the long-acting insulin Levemir made by Novo Nordisk Inc. still may be on the market. FDA first alerted the public to the theft in June 2009.

Advice for Patients :

Check your personal supply of insulin to determine if you have Levemir insulin from one of the following lots: XZF0036; XZF0037; XZF0038.

You can locate the lot number on the side of the box of insulin and also on the side of the vial.

Do not use your Levemir insulin if it is from one of these lots.

Replace it with a vial of Levemir insulin from another lot.

If you must switch to another brand of insulin for any reason, first contact your health care provider because another insulin product may require adjustments in dosing.

Always look at your insulin carefully before using it. Levemir is a clear and colorless solution.
