Apidra Insulin Information

People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes may benefit from Apidra® (insulin glulisine). This prescription insulin works by controlling the spike in blood sugar levels after meals. It comes in injectable form and is administered just under the skin (subcutaneously) within 15 minutes before, or up to 20 minutes after, starting a meal. Your healthcare provider should show you exactly how to inject it.
 
Most people tolerate this type of insulin well; however, it can cause side effects, including low blood sugar and thickening of the skin at the injection site. Also, make sure your healthcare provider has information about other medications you are using before starting treatment with Apidra.
