Effects of Lantus

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, your healthcare provider may recommend a type of insulin called Lantus® (insulin glargine). The drug's effects on the body are long-lasting -- one daily dose provides a steady level of insulin for 24 hours. Theoretically, this may help reduce the chance of dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
 
Side effects of Lantus may include:
 
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • A skin reaction at the injection site
  • Thickening of the skin at the injection site.
