Super: José, Taking Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL SoloSTAR® since 2007.

Super: Do not take Lantus® if you are allergic to any of its inactive ingredients.
Super: The most common side effect of insulin is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious and life threatening.

Super: Insulin is taken as part of an overall diabetes treatment plan, which may include diet, exercise and other diabetes medications.

Super: Do not share needles, insulin pens or syringes with others. Do NOT reuse needles.
Super: Follow all steps in the instruction leaflet that comes with your pen. Otherwise, you may not get the correct amount of insulin injected which may affect your blood sugar levels.
