    @Damonite - Why do you want to do this tonight? Can any change you feel you want to make not be deferred until you have spoken with your team tomorrow?

    Nobody on this team can give you dosing advice, which would constitute medical advice.

    If there is an imperative, involving your medical safety, then I feel sure 111 could help you out, with either direct advice, or more likely a call back from someone medically appropriate.

    If it's that you don't feel you are going to get along with Tresiba, then can it not wait, 24 hours before making any changes?
