As of jan. 1, my prescription drug coverage will no longer cover lantus. They want me to switch to levemir (insulin detemir). Is levemir (insulin detemir) basically the same thing?

In brief: Tough question

Some patients do much better on Lantus and others do better on levemir (insulin detemir).
You will have to work with your doctor on this. Essentially they do the same thing.
