Do solostar pens come prefilled with the lantus in it? if it does how much does each one come prefilled with? does it come filled with 110 units or less per pen? or do you use a bottle that you have to pull the lantus out of?

I see no one has answered this for you in 9 months. I am starting on Lantus Pen today. I called the drugstore to ask the same question... I'm starting on wht apparently is a low dose... 15 units... and see where we go from there. No one, not even my doctor's nurse, can answer this question. I guess I'll just learn as I go along.

Good luck... I'm guessing you already have an answer to your question by now?

According to the box:
100 units/mL
5 3mL pens
300 units per pen
1500 units per box

The Lantus SoloStar pens are prefilled, so no drawing from a vial.

Also, the pen will only allow you to inject 80 units at a time. 110 units seems extreme.

I know about 30 people that are using lantus and none of them are using anywhere close to to a 100 units a day. Most of the people I know are using around 20 to 28 units a day

I use 90 units per day and 20 units Humilog and Bydurian weekly. Some people have this worse than others. I am 40 lbs over the weight recommended which I was when I was 15. I have a stocky build. 300 units is correct per pen. For my trip around the world I am taking 14 days supply of Lantis. So 90 x 14 = 1260 / 300 = 4.2 or 5 pens.

110 units is too much I nearly went into coma Thursday morning when my bg reading was 37 and that's when I was at 54 units today my doctor decreased the amount of insulin to 40 units I hope for my health that it never happens again. Anyway good luck and God bless

I am on 100 units a day. I'm glad that others of you are on lower doses but please don't tell us that or doses are wrong. I put my trust in my doctor, not strangers. To answer the question, you will get almost 3 days per pen.

I was wondering how this worked as my latest dosage is 45 units before bed and the pharmacist told me that the one box would be enough for the month.

I couldn't see how that was possible until I realized from the above writings that there are 5 pens in a box, and not the 4 that I thought there were.

I was probably thinking only 4 because one of the pens was broken right out of the box, wouldn't inject any amount, tried multiple needles etc. Didn't bother notifying the pharmaceutical company since I don't pay for lantus what with their $0 copay available on the website.
