Soliqua Solostar information

Side Effects
Available Form

The recommended starting dose of insulin glargine-lixisenatide depends on your previous dose of insulin. Starting doses are usually either 15 units (15 units insulin glargine/5 µg lixisenatide) or 30 units (30 units insulin glargine/10 µg lixisenatide) injected once daily.

Insulin glargine-lixisenatide should be injected subcutaneously (under the skin) of the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen, once daily within 1 hour before your first meal of the day. Do not inject it into a vein or muscle. Do not use Soliqua Solostar in an insulin pump.

Depending on your body's needs and blood glucose monitoring, your doctor or diabetes educator will help you adjust your dose until your fasting blood glucose is appropriate for you. Your doctor or diabetes educator will determine the appropriate dose for you according to various lifestyle factors and the blood glucose values obtained while monitoring your blood glucose. The maximum daily dose is 60 units of insulin glargine/20 µg of lixisenatide daily.

If you need less than 15 units or more than 60 units of Soliqua Solostar to control your blood glucose, contact your doctor.

If you are unsure how to use the prefilled injection pen or Soliqua Solostar, ask your doctor, pharmacist, or diabetes educator to show you. Don't use Soliqua Solostar until you know how to administer it.

Insulin glargine-lixisenatide should be clear and colourless. Do not use Soliqua Solostar if you notice anything unusual in the appearance of the solution, such as cloudiness, discolouration, or clumping. It is not necessary to shake or rotate the vial before use. It should not be mixed with any other insulins or solutions.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Soliqua Solostar exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, inject within the hour before your next meal and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store unopened prefilled pens in the original cartons, in the refrigerator. Protect from light and do not allow to freeze. Once a pen has been opened, keep it at room temperature and protect it from light. After first use, a pen may be used for 28 days. Discard any solution that remains in the pen after this time, or if the pen is frozen or exposed to excessive heat.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
