Default New, taking Humalog/Lantus, have questions

Ive been taking NPH and Regular Novalin for many , many years now, lately ive have some dangerous lows! Since i havnt been to a specialist in a long time, i figured i needed to take care of myself some more, My new doctor is great! Explains everything to you so you understand . So he put me on Lantus and now taking humalog just before my meals, this is very different than im used to taking my insulin twice a day before and just going from there, now its one shot a day and then im taking one just before my meals. Also Humalog and Lantus are 5x more expensive the my NPH and R. Anyone else gone thru this and how did it work out???!!!!

I was on nph and had problems with lows too. NPH effectiveness was like a bell curve if you didnt eat for the peek I had lows.

I switched to Lantis and novalog. gone are the lows what your on now is basal/bolis and its worked great for me (untill I went onto a pump).
