Abasaglar® (insulin glargin): Administreringsväg

Abasaglar administreras som subkutan injektion.

Detailed information

Administer Abasaglar subcutaneously into the abdominal area, thigh, or deltoid.1

Rotate injection sites within the same region from one injection to the next to reduce the risk of lipodystrophy.1

Do not dilute or mix Abasaglar with any other insulin or medicinal product as the time/action profile of Abasaglar can be changed and mixing can cause precipitation.1

Do not administer Abasaglar intravenously.1

Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

After injection of Abasaglar into the SC tissue, the acidic solution is neutralized, leading to formulation of microprecipitates from which small amounts of Abasaglar are continuously released.1

Abasaglar has a slow and prolonged absorption and a relatively constant concentration/time profile over 24 hours with no pronounced peak.1

There are no clinically relevant differences in serum insulin or glucose levels after abdominal, deltoid or thigh administration of insulin glargine.1
