I have gained 10 pounds in 2 months. My #'s have not changed much. Why do you have to take it at bedtime, and not during the day. My doctor tells me to take it at bedtime because in the morning my numbers are In the 200's.
Toujeo Solostar (insulin glargine ), is a long-acting insulin for adults with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
Toujeo is injected once a day, usually before bed, but it can be taken at other times. It is important that Toujeo is consistently taken at the same time each day.
Your doctor has probably recommended nightly dosing because peak insulin levels occur 12 hours after dosing which coincides with your morning high levels. Talk with your doctor before changing times.
Weight gain (and weight loss) has been reported with Toujeo and again discuss this with your doctor.
