taking byetta and insulin together

My doctor wants me to take a byetta shot in the morning and a lantus shot in the evening. Has anyone done this before and what were your results? Thanks Sue D.

I used to take them both. It works out good. I loved the Byetta because it helped me out with my appetite.

Re: taking byetta and insulin together

Hi

I started on Byetta just over 2 weeks ago and I am still taking Lantus at night but bringing the dose down gradually. Because of being on both medications I have to go and see a Consultant next Wednesday because at present apparently Byetta is not licenced to take with Lantus (that is here in the UK - dont know about the States).

Re: taking byetta and insulin together

I find this very interesting. I recently attended the Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) seminar and they had an exhbit on Byetta. I picked up a free DVD that had on it. It discusses the product, its use, etc. I am Type I, but I got if for my mother who is Type II. Anyway, I watched it before giving it to her and it said it is ONLY for Type II's who are NOT on insulin. Have they changed? I just got the DVD a couple of weeks ago.

Now I am curious. The DVD was clear in saying that it should not be taken with insulin.

Re: taking byetta and insulin together

I dont know the answer to your query Kendra but I have now been to see the Consultant and I think he said that Byetta and Lantus work differently - guess thats obvious really! - anyway I am still on 20 units at night (Lantus) but am trying to drop it quickly now as I have been on the Byetta almost 6 weeks now. Unfortunately I am suffering quite badly from the side effects but I am hoping it will settle down because against medical predictions my IBS has really improved since being on the Byetta.
