Lantus Strengths

Lantus® (insulin glargine) is a long-acting insulin used to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is an injected drug that works by providing a steady amount of insulin throughout the day -- this helps the body remove sugar from the blood.
 
Lantus is available in the following forms and strengths:
 
  • Lantus vials -- 10 mL, with 100 units of insulin per mL   
  • Lantus SoloSTAR® (disposable pen) -- 3 mL per pen, with 100 units of insulin per mL.
     
Lantus was once available in cartridges meant for use in the reusable Opticlik® pen. However, the manufacturer has discontinued this product.
 
Regardless of which form or strength you are using, Lantus should be given just once a day.
