Use the Appropriate Dose of Basaglar When Switching From Other Insulins

Many patients will switch from Lantus to Basaglar (BAY-zuh-glar).

Basaglar is a new brand of glargine U-100...NOT a Lantus generic.

But Lantus will be dropped from some 2017 formularies since it costs about $370 per 5-pen box...compared to about $320 for Basaglar. Basaglar will only come in a KwikPen.
