NovoRapid (insulin aspart) is Novolog: Novorapid (insulin aspart) is Insulin aspart, a rapid-acting Insulin analog (this means it's been biochemically engineered to be more rapid acting than regular human insulin). Novorapid (insulin aspart) is the name used outside the usa for this product. Here in the usa, it is known as novolog.
