From Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA:

Is Lantus safe for use in pregnancy? The prescribing information is very vague. Have there been any problems reported by pregnant women in Europe?


I am not aware of any research or reports of the use of Lantus (insulin glargine) during pregnancy so I cannot give you a good answer. If you are currently using Lantus, you may want to switch to one of the other long acting insulins (NPH or Ultralente) temporarily.
