200 days supply total for Lantus Insulin
by: David

Lantus Insulin U-100 = 100 units per 1ml

Multiply 100 units by 10ml (the size of the Lantus insulin vial) and you have 1,000 total units.

Next, we divide the maximum units used each day:

10 units sq bid = 10 units twice daily

10 X 2 = 20 units each day

1,000 units divided by 20 units = 50 days per 1 x 10 ml insulin vial

Back to the original question: we are dispensing 4 x 10ml vials of Lantus... so we have to multiply our days supply question by 4... 50 days supply multiplied by 4 = 200 days supply total.
