  • Perceived effectiveness for Diabetes Type 1: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 100 units Every Other Week
Advice & Tips: The reason Hyperglycemia is listed is because Lantus seems to run out of my system in about 18 1/2 hours, not the optimal 20-24. Other than that, I have been taking Lantus for two weeks and have seen an average drop of 10.5/mmol in my average BS. After years of running from 13 to well over 30, being under 20 (mostly under 13!!!) is incredible. I am hoping to see more improvement as my metabolic system adjusts itself, and as we fine-tune my insulin dosing. But Lantus is fantastic, as far as I'm concerned.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Diabetes Type II insulin dependent: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am to take my shot at night before bedtime and I keep forgetting, so now I take it after eating my last meal of the day and it's not so bad. I use an insu-pen which is MUCH better than a regular needle. If you need to take insulin - ask for the PEN rather than the needle. Inject your most fatty part of your body and you won't feel a thing!
Cost: < $25 monthly
