Insuman Comb 50 100units/ml suspension for injection 3ml cartridges has been discontinued with stocks being exhausted imminently, notified Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

The department has issued a medicine supply notification for Insulin isophane biphasic human 50/50 (Insuman Comb 50) 100units/ml suspension for injection 3ml cartridge.

“Humolog Mix 50 remains available, as do other biphasic insulin preparations, and the manufacturers can support a full uplift in supply,” said DHSC.

A copy of this medicine supply notification, including further information, has been sent to all pharmacy NHS email addresses.

DHSC and NHSE/I’s newly launched online Medicines Supply Tool provides up to date information about medicine supply issues. The contents of these MSNs can now be viewed on the Tool.
