Lantus: Is a long acting insulin, is meant to be used once a day. Every patient is unique, so adjustig your regimen is unique as well. Is better to ask your doctor for his/her reason to do split the dose. I am curious as well. The important issue is the total dose you need per day (once, or in divided doses.

In the event that they do not, one's local pharmacy can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please clarify: Hi. I don't understand your question. Lantus is only given once per day (not 3 times/day).
