Insulin glargine (Lantus) Should be administered once daily, at any time of day, but should be administered at the same time each day. Cold injections should be avoided. SubQ administration is usually made into the thighs, arms, buttocks, or abdomen, with sites rotated. Cannot be diluted or mixed with any other insulin or solution. Solution should be clear and colorless with no visible particles; inspect solution prior to administration.
These are the forms available in the USA:
Lantus®: 100 units/mL (3 mL) [OptiClik® prefilled cartridge or SoloStar® disposable insulin device]; (10 mL) [vial] one is a prefilled syringe.
