I been on lantus solostar pen for 2 years in it has worked great for me..Heres what you have to keep in mind about the monthly cost..Lantus comes in a box of 5 pens they won't split up a box..
Five pens equals 1500 units of insulin depending on how many units you need a day determines how long that box will last, some people only require 10 units daily and some require much more .
If you go to the lantus website you can sign up for 6 prescription refills for 25.00 dollars each. The way I read it if you get a 90 day supply it's still only 25.00 the first 6 times..Big savings ..good luck

Maybe talk to your doc about something different. Lantus, to my understanding is coming off patent, so there is a bit of time left to get the most cash they can.
