12 Jul 2012 At first all seemed real well, then after about 6 1/2 weeks, I started getting headaches, neck aches, back pain, stomach pain in my upper stomach, and joint aches. Vision immedately went bad, but got better after about 3 weeks of use. ( take 20 mg one a day) Doc told me to cut back to 15 once a day, as I called him yesterday to see what was going on.

12 Feb 2012 For me Lantus has given me much better basal control of my blood sugars compared with Insulatard and has eliminated severe night time hypos, which were frightening even after 50 years of being T1 diabetic.
