@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 Basaglar is the exact same thing as Lantus, you can Google that. It's just because they manufacture it smarter than whoever makes Lantus, they can afford to sell it cheaper.

@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.

@RonaldJWaldron @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump Wow if only that were the case for all types of insulin 🙄 One vial of Humalog (10mL) = $332 One vial of Novolog (10mL) = $351 One vial of Fiasp (10mL) = $348 One vial of Lantus (10mL) = $306 You were saying??

@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.

@formerrepublic7 @ogprop55 My damn Januvia is almost $400/month ... the Donut Hole arrives quickly. Lord help us!! Good luck

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???

@Kidfears99 We use the same the humalog and Lantus! 7 years ago I spent 990 for a month supply now I spend 1900!

Have you heard of Semglee? This new basal insulin is similar to Lantus but is available at a lower price. For more information visit semglee.com #T1D #Diabetescamping #insulin

@janaforjustice @AngelWarrior321 @EinsteinsMagic I’m Type 1 diabetic, I use Lantus and Novolog and on Medicare/Humana prices went down drastically

@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/…

@RayKump Is this before or after the Januvia pill?

@betabetic2 Ooh, I didn’t know this was a thing! Will look into it and might ask consultant or DSN when I finally speak to someone. Can’t up Lantus in advance because this doesn’t happen every month, so something that’s active for 8-12 hours would be great

Looking for someone near Santa Clara who has lantus #Insulin4all

$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…

My basal insulin requirements have increased by 40% in the last 3 days, because hormones. This is quite difficult to manage on injections because an increase in Lantus dose takes 3-4 days to take effect, by which time my period will have arrived and it’ll turn on its head

@bwsolutions29 @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump Lantus Is old, tresiba is very distinct to lantus Of course they are similar as they all serve the same function, mimicking insulin.... but that does not make them all the same... they all have different onset times and durations...

$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.

Didn’t take my lantus when I was supposed to last night because my blood sugar was low and I didn’t wanna be up all night dealing with low blood sugars then around 2/230 I started going high so I took it around 3ish and now my blood sugar is even higher

@texas_teacher68 @radiabetic @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump Learn to ask your pharmacist what's a cheaper option and comparable medically. Lantus compared to Basaglar as an example.

@badpancreas @radiabetic @JFNYC1 @realDonaldTrump My husband just switched from Lantus to Basaglar $600 to $35. Anyone can buy Novalin fast acting insulin over the counter in a vile for low price also. Ask your pharmacust.

@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.

@jmshoffstall Oh man, I'm using Lantus now and it's such a game changer. I really hope you can get it soon! It's frankly ridiculous that price is a barrier.

@CASprung Right now, I'm just happy that that 10.6 A1C is down to 9.5. Maybe one day the insurance company will cover Lantus. I'm not holding my breath.
