How and when to use this Lantus Insulin Glargine Cartridge?

Lantus Insulin Glargine Cartridge is used for treating type 2 diabetes (adults) and type 1 diabetes adults and pediatric patients (children six years and older) along with proper diabetic diet, exercise, and weight management. The Lantus dose of the drug may vary for different patients. The medicine should be taken during or immediately after a meal. You should always follow your doctor’s advice about taking it.

Even if the needle has been replaced, never share your SoloStar pen with a Lantus Insulin Glargine Cartridge. You can spread a serious infection to other individuals or catch a serious infection from them.

Without assistance from someone who has been trained to use the LANTUS SoloStar prefilled pen, individuals who are blind or have vision issues should not use the SoloStar with Lantus Insulin Cartridge.

LANTUS SoloStar is an injectable prefilled disposable Lantus Insulin Glargine Cartridge. You can choose Lantus Insulin doses in increments of 1 unit from 1 to 80. Each dose causes the pen plunger to move. The plunger won’t advance all the way to the Lantus Insulin Cartridge’s end until 300 LANTUS units have been administered.

What is diabetes dosage of Lantus Insulin?

The recommended starting dosage of LANTUS Insulin:

  • For Type 1 diabetes, the dosage is approximately one-third of the total daily insulin requirements. It is recommended to use another short-acting insulin, premeal insulin, to help satisfy the remainder of the daily insulin requirements.
  • For Type 2 Diabetes, it is 0.2 units/kg or up to 10 units once daily.

Switching to LANTUS from Other Insulin Therapies:

Dosage adjustments are recommended to lower the risk of hypoglycemia when switching patients to LANTUS from other insulin therapies.

When switching from:

  • Once-daily TOUJEO (insulin glargine 300 units/mL) to once-daily LANTUS (100 units/mL), (Initially, LANTUS dosage is 80% of the TOUJEO dosage that is being discontinued)
  • Once-daily NPH insulin to once-daily LANTUS if NPH is being discontinued.
  • Twice-daily NPH insulin to once-daily LANTUS, 80% of the total NPH dosage that is being discontinued.

Note: Do not alter the medication your doctor has prescribed if you find something different from the ones listed here. You must take this medication strictly as your doctor has advised.

Warnings and Precautions while using Lantus Insulin Glargine Cartridge

Take your medications regularly and follow up with your healthcare specialist.
