The Apidra SoloStar Pen 100IU/ml injectable pen is a rapid-acting insulin (similar to Fiasp) that begins working 10 to 20 minutes after application. Like insulin produced in the body, it allows glucose into fat cells and muscles to have energy. In addition, it will block glucose from being released from the liver.
The Apidra SoloStar 100IU/ml injectable pen is used to improve blood sugar levels in individuals who have been diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This fast-acting insulin effectively lowers blood sugar levels after a meal and can reduce the chances of developing severe diabetes conditions.
Apidra is also available in vials and cartridges. Solostar pens and similar cartridges are available through the Apidra brand.
This medication is typically prescribed with long-acting type insulin medications or other diabetes medications. Your nurse or doctor will demonstrate the correct way to inject this insulin subcutaneously (under the skin). Part of your diabetes regimen should include regular exercise, a healthy diet, and weight loss.
Track your blood sugar levels regularly, and be sure to share them with your doctor so they can adjust your dosage accordingly. Your doctor may add other medications to your regimen such as Novolin and Ozempic to help better your diabetes management.
