What is Levemir?

Levemir is a prescription medication used to lower high blood sugar levels in adults and children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It’s a type of insulin that works in the same way as the insulin your body produces. A key difference however is the fact it’s long-lasting. Levemir is taken by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection), using either a syringe of a pre-filled FlexTouch self-injecting pen. You typically inject Levemir once every 24 hours at the same time each day.

Levemir active ingredients

The active ingredient in Levemir is called insulin detemir. It’s a type of synthetic (man-made) insulin that works in the same way as the insulin your body makes naturally. The only key difference is that insulin detemir has been designed to be longer acting than natural insulin, so it works over a longer time period.

When you inject Levemir under your skin, the insulin detemir is released into your bloodstream. It travels around your body in your blood and helps your cells absorb sugar. It can be active for up to 24 hours, so it can cover your insulin needs over the course of a full day.

Levemir side effects & Levemir drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Levemir include:

  • Reactions at the site of injection, like itching, rashes, skin thickening, or pits forming in your skin (lipodystrophy)
  • Weight gain
  • Allergic reactions that can cause swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
  • Swelling of your hands and feet

In rare instances, Levemir can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause anaphylaxis
  • Your blood sugar falling too low to dangerous levels (hypoglycemia)

Levemir can interact with other diabetes medications and any medications that contain alcohol. This can change how Levemir and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. 

Levemir warnings & precautions

Don’t drink alcohol or use any medicines that contain alcohol whilst taking Levemir.

Don’t take Levemir if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient insulin detemir
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Levemir 
  • Have diabetic ketoacidosis – a condition where high blood sugar causes high levels of ketones to build up in your body

Occasionally Levemir can cause side effects, including dizziness and drowsiness, that can interfere with your ability to drive, use machinery, or perform other dangerous tasks. It’s important to only do so once you’re certain that it doesn’t impact you in this way. 

Talk to your doctor before taking Levemir if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Levemir 
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
