Insulins & Insulin Devices

Insulins & Insulin Devices

At Sanofi we understand patients' needs, and that daily routines don't always go to plan. That's why we've developed a range of insulins and pen devices designed to help your patients understand their treatment and how to store and inject their insulin. And to provide them with more information on their treatment, we have a range of booklets specifically for patients who have been prescribed one of the following insulins.

Toujeo® (insulin glargine 300 units/mL)

Toujeo is the brand name for insulin glargine 300 units/mL, an insulin analogue, licensed for adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus. Toujeo is a novel formulation of insulin glargine, administered once daily via the Toujeo SoloSTAR, an easy-to-use pen device.

Toujeo and Lantus are not bioequivalent and therefore not interchangeable.

Lantus® (insulin glargine 100 units/mL)

Lantus is a once-daily, long-acting, basal analogue insulin. It works by slowly releasing the insulin into the bloodstream throughout the course of the day, helping to control blood sugar.
