1 doctor agrees

In brief: Both biosynthetic

Novolog and Novolin R are both meal time insulins.
Novolog can injected before or immediately after meals, while Novolin R must be at least 30 minutes before meals.Novolin n is as basal insulin. Novolog has a quickest onset, shortest duration of action, least absorption variability, and reduces chances of low blood sugar( hypoglycemia) if used right compared to Novolin R and n respectively.
