@TaylorOski17 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump Taylor, I assume you're diabetic yes? Listen to the genius that I am and do what I said to do. If you're prescribed Lantus, get on Basaglar, it won't hurt you, I promise. And listen...you don't have to believe me, use the Google search bar and do research on Basaglar.
@TaylorOski17 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump You can get Metformin, Basaglar and Novolog anywhere in the US for 180 a month. That combo will cover the MAJORITY, pushing over 99% of DMII diabetics. Basaglar is BIO-IDENTICAL to Lantus and can't harm anyone. If it did, so would Lantus. They are the same thing.
@TaylorOski17 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump These aren't "alternative forms". First, you need to understand drug patents. For instance, two insulins can be bioidentical as is the case with Lantus and Basaglar. Well, you ask, how can one company sell the other's product? Easy, they change not what it is but HOW it is made.
@TaylorOski17 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump They don't look into it. Took me .23 milliseconds to Google "cheap alternative to Lantus", read about about Eli Lilly's Basaglar. Saw my doctor yesterday, had him switch my script from Lantus to Basaglar, picked up the box today for 35 bucks from Walgreens. BAM! 215 bucks saved.
@DrLearnALot Ah. My wife has no pump. She had pancreatic cancer with surgery which gave her type 1 (she was type 2 before) so she uses lantus and humalog injections, but not a pump. That's messed up though. They have your med record from before. Requiring this other stuff is overkill.
@Ptowngirll @_NewMillennial_ @TaylorOski17 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump A 10ml vial of Lantus costs 250.00 via Walgreens without insurance. But Basaglar is a bio-equivalent of Lantus and costs 35.00 a month. You get 5 pens, 3ml each with the caps/needles that screw onto the pens. Of course with a vial of Lantus, you'd have to buy insulin needles too.
@realDonaldTrump I really wish I could believe this. I just saw a patient who has been cutting their Lantus (insulin) dose in half because it was a choice between insulin or food. However, you've lied so many times about so many things that all this does is look like another lie to get votes.
ok diabetes twitter i need u! i take lantus in the am only - i am being sent for an ecg + stress test that will last 7 hours starting at 7am. they say no food/water/insulin from midnight till test is over. sugars gunna skyrocket, prolly 2 days to get stable. what should i do???
@realDonaldTrump can you do something about the cost of Januvia? A diabetic drug. Almost $500 out of pocket for a ninety day supply. Those of us on Medicare, on fixed incomes, paying supplemental insurance, are ineligible for $5.00 per month pharmaceutical coupons for all meds. twitter.com/jfnyc1/status/…
$25 for humalog and $25 for Lantus $35 for needle tips. not including the other $30 i pay for prescriptions. this is also with $120 i contribute to my insurance and $470 my employer contributes monthly 🤗 twitter.com/insulinth0t/st…
$200 to pick up lantus and humalog today. with insurance. not even counting what we pay to insurance each month (thousands). i really only know a few people my age that can afford this every month for the rest of their lives. most people i know my age don’t even have insurance. pic.twitter.com/JO1zKWCTsF— alex azar hate account (@insulinth0t) September 16, 2020
@CASprung I had Lantus when I was last in the hospital for DKA, and it really did change the game. My pancreas just ignores Levemir right now. I'm hopeful my endocrinologist can make the case for Lantus after my last round of labs. I'll know in a couple of weeks.
