Need information on Lantus Pen- down to 20 units on first pen but use 27 daily- what do I do? Must I waist the 20 units left?

Hi, GolfBuddy, I use Lantus in vials and not the pen. If you have thrown out the 20 U this will be for the next time. You can inject the part dose and use a new pen for the rest. That way you are not wasting this costly drug. Just use a new site close to the original injection.

If I am incorrect I expect my brothers and sisters here to correct me.

I agree. When I used insulin, I used every drop, even if I had to split a dose between 2 pens.

Almost exactly what I would have told him Luis!…but I don't think where he injects the 7 units from the new pen would make much difference.
