Ok, I know most of you won't agree with me, but Lantus doesn't work as well as it is said to be. My best friend was on it, and had severe seizures, major headaches, and a litany of problems. She was on this for a while, and her sugars were outrageous, even though she kept upping her Lantus dosage and adjusting her habits. She would end up in the ER once a month because of this. <br>She switched doctors and immediately her new endocrinologist took her off Lantus, and all problems subsided and she chose the other alternative, the MiniMed Insulin Pump, which has made her life so much easier! She is able to excercise whenever she wants to and can live life more freely than taking the Lantus + 3 more shots of Humalog --- now she only has to take one to TWO shots a WEEK! Its so amazing, and her diabetic friends are all now talking to their endos to see if they can get their insulin though the pump rather than take one or more shots a day. <br>Lantus may work for some people, but for others, like my friend, I am so grateful she was taken off this insulin, becasue it almost killed her.
