Previously used Lantus for 3-4 years, gained over 10lbs. Was tired, had no energy. My doctor suggested Basaglar and I am more energetic, no longer feel like I am in a fog all day. I take my shot at night due to my phenomenon with my diabetes and it has helps very well for the 2 years I have been using it. Able to work within a customer-based full-time position without having daytime drowsiness I always seem to experience with Lantus.

Used Lantus and then was switched to Basaglar because of insurance dropping Lantus. Personally, I think Basaglar is not as effective as Lantus per same dosing. This is the results I have seen and other people might not.

I have been on Lantus for 10 or so years and it was working well, insurance decided I needed to switch to this and it is not working well for me, blood sugars vary from 300+ to under 50 in just a few hrs.
