    I am supposed to take the Levemir twice a day- once when I get up & once at bedtime.

    I know I am supposed to eat soon after taking the Novolog. Just wanting to be sure I have it right. I take my insulin right away after waking and then eat first thing in the morning. My practice in the morning is to take the two injections at the same time. You can actually share the needle but you must inject your rapid first, then switch the needle to the basal and inject your basal. You should plan on eating 15 minutes after injecting your Novolog.

Levamir is a Basel insulin(works all day long), it works for ~24 hours Novolog is a bolus insulin(works Fast) it is used for countering food or high BG. when they say dont mix the two they mean in the same syringe or inject the two into the SAME spot. when you take one has no effect on when you take the other.
