LANTUS 100 IU 3 ML 5 PEN
Lantus is a brand name for insulin glargine, a long-acting insulin that is used to treat diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas and helps to regulate the amount of glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream. In people with diabetes, the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use it properly, leading to high blood sugar levels.
Lantus is administered by injection under the skin once a day, usually at bedtime. It works by gradually releasing insulin into the bloodstream over a 24-hour period, providing a steady level of insulin to help control blood sugar levels throughout the day.
Lantus is generally well-tolerated, but like all medications, it can cause side effects. Common side effects of Lantus may include injection site reactions such as pain, redness, or swelling, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), weight gain, and allergic reactions. More serious side effects can include severe allergic reactions and hypokalemia (low potassium levels). It’s important to notify a doctor right away if any serious side effects occur.
Lantus should only be taken under the guidance of a medical professional and with proper monitoring of potential side effects. It is not recommended for use in individuals with certain medical conditions, such as diabetic ketoacidosis or hypersensitivity to insulin glargine. It may also interact with other medications, so it is important to tell a doctor about all medications being taken.
