I have 13 vials of NPH in my refrigerator and I am not going to see it expire and go to waste. So I thought I would switch from Lantus to NPH for awhile. I am just not sure if I should take the same amount of insulin and just split the doses. NPH is taken twice a day and Lantus is once a day for me. Any thoughts?

I just went from NPH to Lantus I was taking ~70 a day of NPH, 40 night and 30 in the AM I am now taking 60 IU of Lantus in the AM. I will not go back to NPH. I find the Lantus a much more level release than the NPH. And my BG numbers are more important.

Stay on the Lantus and donate the NPH to someone that needs it.
