    Reviewed Lantus Solostaron 4/30/2019Sometimes upon injecting you may a feel a burning sensation that quickly goes away. Not sure why but it happens 10 % of the time. Also, first time users please watch your glucose levels. My numbers always ran high but after starting lantus, they ran very low 50s. Just have to adjust the dosage.

    Reviewed Lantuson 8/16/2017Biggest issue is the potential for hypoglycemia after taking the Lantus. I have several episodes a year with hitting a vein or a injection site that puts some of lantus into blood stream too fast. Causing low sugars and it can be a significant reaction.

    Reviewed Lantuson 9/15/2016The pen gave me fits!! Cannot push the button in, when I try the needle bends and or I cannot get the Lantus to come out. My stomach looks like a battleground! Why can't you make the pen like Levemir pens? I had to go back to Levemir.
