This is a brand name product.
The Apidra SoloStar 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.
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.
Warning and Precautions
Avoid sharing needles, cartridges, or syringes to avoid disease transmission. Single-use injection pens are recommended. Even if the needle on the injection pen has been changed, do not share it with anyone, including family members. Do not use it on more than one individual.
Each time you use the needle, attach a new one. You can find different gauges and lengths of hands. Ensure that the needles you use with SoloStar are approved by the manufacturer. Make sure you research Apidra and ask your doctor if it is recommended for you. For more information, talk to your doctor.
When you press the injection button without a needle attached, you will not be able to select a dose.
Always perform the safety test before each injection.
In the event that someone else gives you an injection, they must take particular care to avoid needle injuries and infection transmission.
SoloStar should never be used if it is damaged or if you are not sure it is working properly.
If you lose or damage your SoloStar, always have a spare on hand.
Common Side Effects
Many medications can cause side effects. A side effect is an unwanted response to a medication when it is taken in regular doses. Side effects can be mild or severe, temporary or permanent. The side effects listed below are not experienced by everyone who takes Apidra Solostar (Insulin-glulisine-rapid). If you are concerned about side effects, discuss the risks and benefits of Apidra Solostar (Insulin-glulisine-rapid) with your doctor.
The following side effects have been reported by at least 1% of people taking Apidra Solostar (Insulin-glulisine-rapid): redness, itching, swelling, or bleeding at the place of injection, thickening of the skin at the injection site, anxiety, blurred vision, confusion, difficulty concentrating, difficulty speaking, dizziness, drowsiness, fast heartbeat, headache, hunger, nausea, nervousness, numbness or tingling of the lips, fingers, or tongue, sweating, tiredness, trembling, weakness.
Many of these side effects can be managed, and some may go away on their own over time. Although most of the side effects listed above don’t happen very often, they could lead to severe problems if you do not seek medical attention.
Severe Side Effects
Stop taking the medication and seek immediate medical attention if any of the following occur: rash or blisters all over the body, seizures, symptoms of Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) (e.g., Hives, difficulty breathing, wheezing, fast heart rate, sweating, swelling of the face and throat) and unconsciousness.
Some people may experience side effects other than those listed. Check with your doctor if you notice any symptoms that worry you while taking Apidra Solostar (Insulin-glulisine-rapid).
The metabolism of glucose can be affected by a number of drugs and insulin doses should be adjusted accordingly.
Some medications, such as Apidra, may cause hypoglycemia by increasing the blood-glucose-lowering effects of insulins, such as oral antidiabetic medications, pramlintide, ACE inhibitors, disopyramide, fibrates, fluoxetine, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, propoxyphene, pentoxifylline, salicylates, somatostatin analogs, and sulfonamide antibiotics.
The number of drugs that could reduce Apidra’s blood-glucose-lowering effect is a long list. These include corticosteroids, niacin, danazol, diuretics, sympathomimetic agents (e.g., epinephrine, albuterol, terbutaline), glucagon, isoniazid, phenothiazine derivatives, somatropin, thyroid hormones, estrogens.
Insulin’s blood-glucose-lowering effect may be affected by beta-blockers, clonidine, lithium salts, and alcohol.
Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can sometimes occur after pentamidine use.
In patients taking beta-blockers, clonidine, guanethidine, or reserpine, signs of hypoglycemia may be reduced or absent.
Since this medication contains insulin glulisine, it needs to be consumed within 15 minutes of having a meal. You may not be on a regular eating or dosing schedule. If you miss a dose, do not use two at the same time.
When given intravenously, excess insulin can lead to hypoglycemia and hypokalemia. Hypoglycemia that is mild can usually be treated with oral glucose. The dose of your medications, your diet, or your exercise regimen may need to change. Glucagon or concentrated intravenous glucose may be administered in cases of more severe hypoglycemia associated with coma, seizure, or neurologic impairment. Because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery, sustained carbohydrate intake and observation may be required. Hyperkalemia must be corrected appropriately.
Contact the Poison Help Line at 1-800-222-1222 or seek medical attention immediately as it can lead to life-threatening hypoglycemia. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms such as drowsiness, confusion, numbness, tingling in your mouth, difficulty speaking, blurred vision, muscle weakness, seizures, or loss of consciousness.
There are no well-controlled clinical studies of the use of Apidra in pregnant women. In view of the fact that animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human responses, this drug should only be used during pregnancy if the benefit outweighs the risk to the fetus. The maintenance of good metabolic control during and before pregnancy is essential for patients with diabetes or a history of gestational diabetes. Insulin requirements may decrease during the first trimester, generally increase during the second and third trimesters, and rapidly decline after delivery. Careful monitoring of glucose control is essential in these patients.
Taking the Apidra SoloStar pen while pregnant (or planning to become pregnant) is not recommended.
Dust and dirt can damage your SoloStar. A damp cloth can be used to clean the outside of your SoloStar. The pen should not be soaked, washed or lubricated in any way.
SoloStar is designed to operate safely and accurately. Handle it carefully. Do not damage SoloStar.
In case of damage to your SoloStar, a new one should be used.
SoloStar Pens should be kept out of reach and sight of children.
Store your SoloStar in a cool location (2°C – 8°C) until first use. Avoid freezing your SoloStar Pen. It should not be placed near the freezer compartment of your refrigerator or next to a freezer pack. When you are ready to inject your SoloStar, take it out of cool storage one to two hours before injecting. Insulin that is cold is painful to inject.
As soon as you take your SoloStar Pen out of cool storage, either for use or as a spare, you can use it for up to 28 days. If possible, keep it at room temperature (15 – 25°C) and do not store it in the refrigerator. Once the 28-day shelf life has expired, any remaining insulin should be thrown away.
SoloStar should not be used after the expiration date printed on the label or if the ink is cloudy, colored, or if you see particles. Keep SoloStar away from light. If your local authorities require it, dispose of your used SoloStar.
