I do NOT think Semglee is as effective as Lantus. I'm about to contact my Dr about this as well. I was completely controlled on Lantus, and have used both as I still had some Lantus left. My glucose levels are FAR more controlled with Lantus. My levels were significantly elevated with Semglee and I can't increase the dose any more without fear of more severe hypoglycemia. I can't pinpoint the "peak" either (which every glargine has - though slight - it has to be accounted for in your control). This is not an equal product. With insurance not covering my Lantus anymore I don't know what to do. Managed care in this country is a business, and cares nothing about anyones "health". It's shameful and a tragedy that I have to fight for my health in this country. I wish the insurance companies would have to turn their bodies in to experimental lab rats as they keep making us do every time they decide not to cover an insulin based on their business and political dealings. I work really hard at being healthy and staying well with Diabetes, and every time I have to try something else due to financial/managed care/political reasons it just undoes all the work we do to stay alive. It should be criminal, because it can kill people. Read More Read Less

This medication SHOULD NOT be prescribed to patients who are doing just fine on Lantus! I experienced weight gain and fluid retention as an otherwise very healthy T1D of 30+ years. I have never had weight issues UNTIL I started this medication for only 3 months. I quickly stopped the Semglee once I realized it was causing my weight gain reaction and bloating. We all know how crucial weight control is to diabetes care. How could this product be approved for daily glucose control when it causes, as a side effect, a symptom which directly impacts diabetics?? DO NOT accept this prescription from your physician or healthcare team if you care about your health as a diabetic. Read More Read Less

This product is not effective at all and since my insurance will not cover Lantus I'm stuck using triple the amount of this crap.

I think this is nothing more than sterile water. Since switching from Lantus my insulin levels are all over the place! With Lantus I KNEW it was working..Makes me wonder..
