At present, I am taking 25 units qam and 45 units qpm so I find that each syringe is only lasting me a little more than 4 days. If the dosage strength was doubled, I would only need half the number of units in order to achieve the same dosage of Insulin that I use now... Thanks... Cathy
for what I know 100U is the strongest and the syringe comes with 300ml. but you are taking 75u a day so that's way is only about 4 days. check on the body of your pen, if it does not read 100u/ml.(U-100) you can ask your doctor for it...
LANTUS® can lower blood sugar best when taken in the amount that's right for your body. Work closely with your healthcare provider to determine the right dose for you.
When you first start your LANTUS® insulin treatment, your healthcare provider may prescribe a low insulin dose, often 10 units, to see how well it helps lower your blood sugar. Then, over time, your healthcare provider might increase the dosage, until he or she decides you are getting the right dose for you
Adjusting your insulin dose is a normal part of a diabetes treatment program.
