Yes, I have. I switched from Humalog to Novolog probably 5 or 6 years ago (before pumping, after using Humalong for a few years) because I was going low before the carbs of my food took effect. Actually, I don't know if there's more of a delay, or if the initial "spike" of Novolog is not as steep and is a bit more extended. But from my readings on here, some people have encountered the exact opposite.
Thanks Scott! You're right, it could be that the initial spike of this insulin is more extended. I switched to Novolog to have an option of taking 0.5 unit (I don't use a pump). It just seems that my BSs are higher now with Novolog. I guess I should give it a little more time.
After switching to Novalog, I really wanted to go back to Humalog for the same reason. I still wonder, on occasion, of Humalog would be better for me. But my doctor at the time was being overly super-cautious, I suppose, because of a few isolated low sugar levels.
