What type of insulin is Apidra?

Apidra is a type of fast-acting insulin that was created to control blood sugar levels in a person with diabetes. This type of medicine is always prescribed as a part of treatment in combination with other drugs, as well as a diet, exercise, weight control, etc., and cannot be used independently.

Apidra also helps with controlling glucose metabolism. It promotes the absorption of glucose by adipose and peripheral tissues, skeletal muscles, etc., thus maintains the appearance of the glucose in the liver.

Is Apidra rapid-acting insulin?

Yes, Apidra is a rapid-acting insulin that should be prescribed along with long-acting insulin or other diabetes mellitus medications. It is mealtime insulin that should be applied 10-15 minutes before or after eating.

The frequency and dosage have to be directed by your doctor only. The patient is not allowed to change the dose themselves. Those who plan to become pregnant are currently pregnant, and breast feeding women may require individual recipes.

When should I apply Apidra insulin?

As Apidra insulin glulisine is mealtime insulin, it should always be taken before starting a meal or after the meal once or twice per day (the frequency depends on the patient’s health peculiarities).

The rules of administration of Apidra for high blood sugar are the same as for all injectables. It should be applied subcutaneously (not into the vein or the muscle); the areas you may administer medication into include the abdomen, upper arm, thighs, and buttocks. It is recommended not to massage the area after injection, as well as to change the injection site after every administration in order to avoid bumps formation. Do not share the pen or a syringe even if the needle was changed in order to avoid dangerous types of infection or illness.

Before using insulin, a health care provider should show a special technique and safety rules of insulin application to the patient so that they can do it on their own at home.

Are there any side effects after Apidra?

Apidra insulin glulisine may cause the following common side effects:

  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia);
  • Injection site reactions (allergic reactions, redness, slight bruising, etc.);
  • Nausea;
  • Fatigue and unusual weakness;
  • Headache;
  • Slight weight gain.

All of these symptoms are safe and do not require the help of the doctor. However, if you have noticed any of these symptoms, you should talk to your medical provider right away:

  • Trouble breathing or swallowing;
  • Serious allergic reactions in the injection sites;
  • Visual disturbances;
  • Cool pale skin;
  • Increased irregular heartbeat;
  • Muscle cramps.

These symptoms are not dangerous if you call your doctor and take care of them on time. Otherwise, they may lead to serious complications, heart failure, and, on rare occasions, death.

In the case of low blood sugar, insulin cannot be used. First, a person needs to get their blood glucose level back to normal. It can be done in a few ways: eat something sweet (sugar cubes, honey, and nuts, candies, etc.), drink a sugary beverage, or take a glucose pill. If these methods did not help, it is recommended to call the doctor to get medical help right away (a glucagon injection may be required).

Who cannot use insulin Apidra?

People with the following medical conditions cannot use Apidra insulin:

  • Low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia);
  • Allergies or hypersensitivity to any ingredients of the drug;
  • A history of liver or kidney problems.

Tell your doctor if you are taking any over-the-counter medications, herbal extracts, or have changes in your diet or exercise routine. It is also important to inform if you changed your basal insulin. A recalculation of Apidra may be required in this case.

Can I buy Apidra over-the-counter?

No, it is impossible to buy Apidra over-the-counter because Apira is a prescription type of insulins. In order to buy it in your local pharmacy or online, you need to get a valid prescription from your doctor. Only a specialist may define which insulins you need exactly, how often you should apply them, and what dosage will be good for you.

How should I store Apidra?

Unused Apidra should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature from 2 to 8 ° C. You cannot keep it in the freezer or close to the freezer compartment. If the medication was accidentally frozen – it should not be used!

If the drug is about to be used or is currently in use, you should keep it at a room temperature not higher than 25 ° C. Put it in a dark and dry place, away from the heat, direct sunlight and children. Apply the medicine to the injection sites within 28 days after the opening.

Do not use Apidra after the expiration date that is indicated on the box. Dispose it properly after the remedy went bad (you may ask about the rules at your local pharmacy).
