Lantus Vial Drug Info (Pack with 1 x 10 mL Vial)
Lantus vial contains Lantus insulin, which is a scientific name for insulin glargine, a long-acting insulin solution. Its absorption, distribution and metabolism in the body is very similar to naturally occurring human produced insulin that is found in people who do not have diabetes.
- HOW IT WORKS?
Lantus works by simulating the action of naturally occurring insulin, which regulates the control of blood sugar levels in the body. The primary function of insulin (including insulin glargine, the kind used in Lantus) is the regulation of sugar metabolism. It lowers blood sugar levels by stimulating blood sugar absorption from the blood into skeletal muscle and fat cells, and by blocking sugar production by the liver.
Always follow the health advice of your doctor or other healthcare professional.
The amount of medicine that you take depends on the strength of the medicine. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the medicine depend on the medical problem for which you are using the medicine.

Lantus (Insulin Glargine)
Lantus is a long-acting insulin that helps control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. It contains insulin glargine, a man-made form of insulin that works slowly and consistently over time to keep blood sugar levels stable.
Why Choose Lantus?
- Long-Acting Insulin – Lantus provides a steady release of insulin over 24 hours, helping to maintain consistent blood sugar levels throughout the day and night.
- Flexibility – Lantus can be taken once daily, at any time, as long as it is taken at the same time each day.
- Compatibility – Lantus can be used in combination with other fast-acting or short-acting insulin injections for optimal blood sugar control.
- Simple to use – Lantus is available in a pre-filled pen (Lantus SoloSTAR) and vials, offering convenience and ease of use.
How to use Lantus?
Using Lantus correctly is crucial for effective blood sugar management. Please follow these steps and consult your healthcare provider for personalized instructions.
- Check the label – Before each use, ensure that you have the correct insulin type and concentration.
- Prepare the injection site – Clean the skin at the injection site with an alcohol swab, and allow it to dry completely.
- Dose Preparation – If using a Lantus vial, draw the prescribed dose into an insulin syringe. If using a Lantus SoloStar pen, attach a new needle and prime the pen according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Dial the prescribed dose.
- Dispose of the needle – Safely discard the used needle or pen in a sharps container.
- Record your dose – Keep track of your insulin doses, blood sugar levels, and any reactions to help your healthcare provider make adjustments to your diabetes management plan as needed.
