@jesslyn_19 I don’t mind telling you just here. I’m your cheapest diabetic. Lantus or Basaglar and Novolog/Humalog. I’m also an RN, son is T1D too and reps around here are bare bones anymore I try not to ask them but when I do anymore they can’t. It’s rules and regs.

@SanofiUS So what? How about some affordable insulin? Canada charges Americans $70 for Lantus while you charge $300 in the US. People can't enjoy a reduced environmental impact when they're dead because they can't afford your insulin.

Another 90 days has almost passed... And another 5 months' worth of Lantus #insulin came my way today for free! Because my doctors at the @UofUInternalMed are AWESOME 😎

Not only for @LillyDiabetes, but also @novonordiskus and @Diabetes_Sanofi. My household uses or has used insulin from all three companies. 4000-6000% markup is unfair and unethical! twitter.com/NathanLoewy/st…

@siouxperjen I’ve used expired Lantus in a pinch (pump malfunction), but on MDI I usually went through it by the 45 day mark, but it seemed to work okay. Do you leave it in the fridge or at room temp once it’s open?

How long do you make a vial of lantus last? How long before you are having highs? #insulin4all

Can one box of humalog NOT be almost $600?? And the same for Lantus? I gotta live. Thank you. twitter.com/teampelosi/sta…

@Millennial__MD Same... like Januvia is derived from Gila monster saliva

I'd like to solve the puzzle: LANTUS SOLOSTAR JOHN BOEHNER. Buzz. Wrong, it was ENCLOSURE. You lose.

@IvankaTrump So exciting! My mom's Januvia will go from $1750 down to $1710 for a 90 day supply? America IS a Great place to live Again! 😂 If she was on medicaid, the state would quickly drain her humble estate ($90,000 home) upon death with such erroneous costs. Stripped naked.

Should the following be mixed for a duration longer than a year: 1.Co-Codamol - codeine and paracetamol 2.Donepezil Hydrochloride 3.Duloxetine Gastro Resistant Capsules 4.Cosmocol powder 5.Complan 6.Lantus Solostar Injection solution #Doctors #holistichealth #medicalresearch

The new, Framingham, Massachusetts plant will make biologics such as its insulin known as Lantus, Apridra and the Humalog biosimilar known as Admelog. twitter.com/FiercePharma/s…

Merck Sells Januvia in India at 43Rs a pill. So 100=100x43=4300Rs. 1$=71.57. 4300/71.57=60$. 100tabs of JANUVIA IN India costs 60$ whereas 100 tabs of JANUVIA AT CBS PHARMACY COSTS $453.00. Why are we paying so much? It’s a profit of 650%. Thats ROBBERY ON AN EPIC SCALE.

$16,000 + per year for my Humalog and Lantus insulin @LillyPad @sanofi @novonordisk raking in BILLIONS off dangling carrots then #PriceGouging My dad has ONE cancer pill that costs $128,000 per year! #MedicareForall means FOR ALL! #Warren2020 #Debate twitter.com/mamaliz1969/st…

Oh, Lantus. I will never forsake thee again 🙏🏻

@Martamendoza718 @EileenPMcLaugh2 I spent most of last weekend in the ICU for BS 850. Slow drip insulin. Infection made me spike, then spike some more. Dr. Wrote scrip for Lantus. Ins wouldn't cover, I got a cheaper version. BS average 328 last 7 days

@bigpurpleduck Glad to hear the Lantus is going some way to fixing things! This afternoon I had a 3.2 in the middle of a ‘networking’ event and honestly, I was delighted

Was missing both Humalog and Lantus, and didn’t know of the resources at the University hospital for emergency insulin, and couldn’t afford my prescription (was without health care coverage and didn’t have Blue Cross in Alberta - full RX was about $150 for both types) 2/

@ExpressRxHelp Already done this numerous times. I don’t have a lot of faith in someone who can’t get my name right when A. I’ve told them what it is and b. They have it on a screen. And then the supervisor called me a liar. So we’ll go with Lantus bc that’s all you cover.

Are you a person in Toronto who uses #insulin (or do you have an animal that does)? I have 2 unopened, refrigerated vials of Lantus glargine insulin and ~100 syringes (opened packaging but unused) that I don't need anymore. Free for pickup in Roncy/Parkdale!

@TheRhodri Wee bit better today, ta. First day back on Lantus and so far things are much less chaotic. Absolute bastard of a thing at times, innit. How’s your afternoon going?

@StephB617 @TRICARE I’m on the phone with the “supervisor” at ExpressScripts and he’s like “they didn’t denote on the prior auth WHY he needs triceba over Lantus.” We were never told they needed to give a reason - they’re doctors - do they need to justify why their patient needs insulin?! Really???

@alanands3 @narendramodi @PMOIndia Thanks but i said "Prescribed insulin", at Janaushadhi kendra you'll get only lantus.

@bigpurpleduck I tried switching to levemir and actually wanted to throw myself in front of a train - so sad and suicidal and very scary. 24hrs back on lantus all was better with the world. The reaction from the diabetes team = we’ve never heard of that before 🙈 hope you feel more like you x

@bigpurpleduck Nope! Tried it for 2 weeks & just hated it - I was so happy to be back on Lantus 😊

@iiSherry If we’re still that good in three months, I’ll probably drop the januvia.

@bigpurpleduck 8 weeks is definitely giving it a shot. Well done you. These things don’t always work for everyone, but it’s worth trying, to be able to say no thanks! So sorry it’s not worked for you. I hope Lantus works and you feel better soon. 🤞

@FennerMichelle Yup. Very familiar to the control issues I had till I switched to lantus and humalog.

@mann1ak Thank you. I still have a full box of Lantus pens in the fridge. The ME question is harder to answer, it’s not very predictable... hopefully if I can get BGs to behave better the ME won’t be too far behind 🤞🏼

@bigpurpleduck Good Lord! You poor thing! Jeesh! How much is one person supposed to bear?! Still have any Lantus kicking round? How long before you can normally get the ME back under control? Big hugs

@bigpurpleduck You've given it a bloody good shot - eight weeks is more than enough of dealing with that kind of wackiness, and the subsequent effects on the rest of you health. I'm sorry, I hope lantus gets you back on more of an even keel.

I switched basal insulin 8 weeks ago. I feel like I’ve given it the best shot I could have. But this is the chaos it’s resulted in (which is triggering my ME and making me feel terrible). I’m done. Tomorrow morning I beg Lantus for forgiveness.
