Anyone take Lantus before/currently? is there a "best" time to take it? can you take it more than once per day? How much Is to much?

I've asked this question before and they told me there was no "right" time to take it. It all works the same. It all depends on your schedule and when it'll be the best convenient time. I only had to take insulin once though but I don't know how often you do it.

Your doctor is slowly titrating the Lantus so that you gradually achieve good blood sugar control. There's no one amount that works for everyone, as each person is different metabolically as well in your daily activity and food choices. I think you'll also benefit by finding a diabetes education program in your area to help you gain knowledge about managing diabetes. Ask your primary doctor for a referral. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Really that is a question which is BEST addressed by your doctor or whomever gives you diabetes care. Dosing is also best discused with the Dr as well!

Accorinng to the Lantus website "With LantusĀ®, you give yourself one injection once a day, at the same time each day. LantusĀ® works continuously to help improve blood sugar control for 24 hours" source ~ http://www.lantus.com/

So for your safety's sake, Go to your Dr and discuss those questions with him or her ASAP. Actually I am surprised Dr hasn't already discussed this with you as messing with insulin is serious business!

God's best to you and yours
