Insulin, Insulin Analogs
Question from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England:
Is NovoRapid approved for use by children?
Not yet, but very soon. However, many drugs used in children are used ‘off licence’ at the discretion of the doctor. This is normal practice in the UK [and elsewhere –Ed. ] and doesn’t mean high risk but simply that the trials have not been done on children under the age of 12.
