About Lantus Solostar

What is Lantus Solostar?

Lantus is the brand-name for insulin glargine that is marketed by the Sanofi pharmaceutical company. Lantus Solostar is a special injection pen also made by Sanofi to make it easier for you to administer your medication. Contrary to popular belief, the Lantus Solostar pen cost can actually be lower than the price of regular vials depending on your insurance copay or discount plan. In many cases, the two products are the same price, and Lantus Solostar pens can hold up to 500 units more insulin glargine than a supply of regular vials. Insulin glargine is a long-acting insulin analog that helps to control insulin levels throughout the day. It is said that a dose of Lantus never peaks as it slowly releases steady doses of insulin over a 24-hour period. It works in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes by helping move sugar from the blood stream to other cells where it can be converted to energy. It also stops the liver from producing more glucose.
