Lantus / Lantus Solostar (insulin glargine) is a form of insulin used to treat people aged six and upwards with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes. Insulin glargine is a long-acting synthetic version of human insulin that is self-injected once daily and provides a steady (basal) insulin level throughout the day. Lantus comes in a vial for use with disposable syringes. Lantus Solostar is a set of pre-loaded pens. Each is sufficient to deliver 28 days of insulin doses.


Always follow the dose exactly as prescribed. There are instructions for self-administration, as well as for when the drug will be administered to a young child, on the Product Leaflet that accompanies the pens and vials. Note: Lantus and Lantus Solostar must be kept refrigerated except when being administered. The product can only be shipped to customers who have selected a cold shipping option when ordering.

Read the information leaflet that comes with the medication.

Most people who use Lantus Insulin do not experience any negative side effects. Doctors prescribe Lantus Insulin because they assess the benefits of such treatment outweigh any likely unwanted effects.

Some of the side effects that have been reported include:

  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) – more likely in children with type 1 diabetes and can be more severe
  • Injection site reaction
  • Skin thickening, lumps, or dents at an injection site
  • Flu-like symptoms (upper respiratory tract infections)
  • Weight gain
  • Swelling in the feet, ankles, or legs (peripheral edema)
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain
  • Diarrhea

Not all side effects are listed here. If these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen, consult a healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Children from the age of six and adults who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and adults over the age of 18 with type 2 diabetes need additional insulin to control their levels of blood sugar. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) is a potentially serious or even fatal condition and needs to be treated and monitored constantly.

Laboratory tests differentiate type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, blood samples contain antibodies that attack the pancreas (the site of insulin production). In type 2 diabetes, the main signal is high sugar content in the urine or blood.

  • How is insulin given to children?
    When a parent or caregiver is administering Lantus Insulin to a young child, there are a few basic guidelines. Choose a spot on the belly, upper arms, thighs, buttocks, or hips. Wipe the area clean with a fresh damp alcohol swab. Rotate the injection site in a cycle, so that the same spot is not used more than once in a month. After injection, dispose of the needle safely.
  • What is the duration of action of glargine insulin?
    Lantus is a long-acting insulin analog (insulin glargine). It has an onset of insulin activity of 1.5 to 2 hours. The insulin effect reaches a peak in three to four hours, and it continues to work for 24 –36 hours.
  • Why is insulin glargine given at night?
    For adult patients with type 2 diabetes, Lantus Insulin is often administered at bedtime. This is because insulin glargine reduces blood glucose levels more efficiently while fasting. There is less risk of nocturnal hypoglycemic events (low blood sugar) than when a patient is treated with an intermediate-acting insulin (NPH).
  • How long does it take for glargine to peak?
    In a small proportion of patients (about 10%), the levels of insulin taper off after an injection of glargine, so doses must be taken twice daily to keep the coverage of basal insulin sufficient. Some people can encounter a peak 2-6 hours after injection when administered at night. This can cause nocturnal hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
  • Should glargine be refrigerated?
    It is important to follow the storage instructions for Lantus (insulin glargine) pens and vials, to keep the contents safe and effective. Unopened pens and vials should be stored in the refrigerator, at between 36 and 46 degrees F (4–10 degrees C). Once a vial or pen has been opened, it can only be used for 28 days.
