I just started to take Lantus Solostar and it said to take before bedtime,but i work nightshift sometimes so i don't sleep, when i work i take it early before i go to work,should i bring it to work to take at same time eventhough i don't sleep??? Or should i take it when i sleep during the day??? Thanks...
Nightshift can really screw with your medications. I used to have to skip doses or I"d be taking them too close together, I know your problem. At least with this it can be taken when you go to work. The nights you are off you can take it a little bit before bed. Or you can take it to work and take it at what would be your bedtime.
I know that problem, I am a insulin dependent diabetic and know from hard won experience that the more consistent you are with your meds the better control you will end up having. I know that it is a royal pain in the but to have to stop or to change something just to take a shot. But when you find a time that is convenient to you to do the shot then at that time every day take the shot then. You can move the time around about 30 minutes but I wouldn't push it beyond that. If you are going to change the time of your shot more than hour it will take you a couple of days or have your doctor figure out how you can do it with adding or subtracting insulin from your next shot. I hope this helps you
