Dosing InformationThe dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your current dose of other insulins
- How you respond to Apidra (especially as measured by your blood sugar levels)
- Other medications you are taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Side Effects of ApidraAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Apidra. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Possible side effects of Apidra include, but are not limited to
- Low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia)
- A skin reaction at the injection site
- Thickening or pitting of the skin at the injection site.
