Prior To Taking This Medication

Refrain from using Basaglar Pens or Basaglar Cartridges should you be allergic to insulin. Should you have an episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) be sure to inform your Primary Care Physician. Basaglar is not approved for use by anyone younger than 6 years old, and should not be used to treat type 2 diabetes in a child of any age. To make sure Basaglar is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have: liver or kidney disease; low levels of potassium in your blood (hypokalemia); or diabetic ketoacidosis (call your doctor for treatment). Tell your doctor if you also take pioglitazone or rosiglitazone (sometimes contained in combinations with glimepiride or metformin). Taking certain oral diabetes medicines while you are using Basaglar may increase your risk of serious heart problems. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Follow your doctor’s instructions about using Basaglar if you are pregnant or you become pregnant. Controlling diabetes is very important during pregnancy, and having high blood sugar may cause complications in both the mother and the baby.

Use

Basaglar is to be injected under the skin of the abdomen, upper arms, or thighs, usually once daily or as directed by your doctor. Be sure to make sure that the area in which you are injecting is clean. Do not inject into a vein or muscle. Change where you inject each time to lessen the risk of problems or damage under the skin (for example, pits/lumps or thickened skin). Do not inject into skin that is red, swollen, itchy, or damaged. Use this medication regularly as directed by your doctor in order to get the most benefit from it. You may inject insulin glargine once daily at any time during the day (such as before breakfast or at bedtime) but you should inject at the same time each day. Carefully follow the insulin treatment plan, meal plan, and exercise program your doctor has recommended. Do not mix this product with other insulins or solutions, or use it in an insulin pump. Do not change brands or types of insulin without directions on how to do so from your doctor. Monitor your blood sugar on a regular basis. Keep track of the results, and share them with your doctor. This is very important in order to determine the correct insulin dose. If you are measuring doses from vials, do not reuse needles and syringes. If you are using the cartridges or pens, use a new needle each time. Do not share your pen device with another person, even if the needle is changed. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (your blood sugar is too high or too low).
