    Hi, I have been given Toujeo today and told to start taking it. Stupidly I didn't ask when I should start taking it and the DNs have closed now. I last took my levemier at 9am, I usually take my other levemier dose at 11pm. Would I take toujeo then do you think or in the morning? Thanks for any advice.

    For clarity, I have never used insulin, so have zero experience to offer you. I had a quick consultation with DrGoogle and I wonder if their of these links could have something helpful for you

    If I recall, @ickihun uses Toujeo, but she's not around at the moment, having just had an op.

    On the upside, this post will bounce your thread to the top of the reading lists again.

    Fingers crossed for you.

    Why not think about what time would suit you best? As you're on split doses now I don't think it would really matter either way. If you still have Levemir left you could also opt to postpone the change to monday and ask your DN.
    Good luck!

    I have no idea why I haven't thought of that! I didn't want to double dose, and figured levemier would still be in my system now. I'll wait. Thanks
