If 'N' = NPH, yes: It peaks in 6-8 hours, last 10-14 hours. Lantus has mosest peaks, lasts 24 hours the amer assoc of clinical endocrinologists recommends not using nph, but longer acting basal insulin, like Insulin to obtain smoother control [often in combination with meal time short-acting insulin].
