Best times to take insulin lantus

    What time during the day can insulin lantus be taken if taking it at bedtime is not convinient
  • Samuel Grossman, BS Pharm, Pharm.D, CDE PROFESSIONAL
    Insulin Lantus can be taken once daily. As long as it is taken once daily at the same time every day, you can inject insulin lantus at any time during the day even in the morning. However, if you inject it in the morning or any other time but bedtime, inform your provider. The values of your fingerstick readings will change because you are injecting this insulin in the morning as opposed to night time.
