Apidra is a fast-acting insulin that adults and children commonly use with diabetes mellitus, even for children under four years old with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It can be used to safely and effectively treat diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels.

When used as a mealtime insulin, it should be taken 15 minutes before mealtime or 20 minutes after starting a meal.

Apidra (insulin glulisine injections) SoloStar® pens are disposable single-patient-use prefilled insulin pens. It’s important to review any associated leaflets included with the pen and speak with your healthcare provider before usage to ensure proper injection techniques are followed.

This insulin can also be used subcutaneously by external insulin infusion pumps.

Every 48 hours, the infusion sets (reservoir, catheter, and tubing) and the Apidra should be replaced. Do not dilute or mix Apidra when used inside the pump, which can cause degradation of the insulin and potentially cause ketoacidosis or hyperglycemia. Do carry a spare form of insulin administration in case there is a failure with the insulin pump.
