I've noticed several comments about Lantus shots "hurting". I'm curious - does it hurt differently than another kind of insulin using the same injection method? Are these comments about Lantus being used via pen? via syringe? either one?
I've been on Lantus for several years now, always injecting via syringe, and haven't noticed any kind of discomfort.
Also - I'm curious about dosages. Lantus was supposed to be 24-hr long lasting insulin, meant to be taken at bed time. Or so it was when I first when on it (which was whenever it became available in the US.) I was having bad night time lows, so my doc switched me to morning, but it didn't seem to last the right lenght of time. I now take an a.m. dose (34) and a bedtime dose (13). Anyone else doing a 2-dosage method?
