Other Medications, Type 2

Question from United States:

I take 20 units of Lantus in the evening, Victoza in the morning. This morning, I accidentally gave myself another 20 units of Lantus. What is going to happen?


From: George Grunberger, MD, FACP, MACE

You may experience hypoglycemia due to the increased insulin. Be prepared to check your blood sugars more often throughout the day.

Editor's Comments:

Please reach out to your own diabetes doctor as well. He/she should be able to guide you about dosing your Lantus this evening.
