As you may well be aware:

  • From 1 January 2020, Sanofi launched a second brand of insulin glargine 100units/mL, OPTISULIN
  • From 1 July 2020, LANTUS (insulin glargine 100 units/mL) will be delisted from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).

As we approach the LANTUS delisting date, it’s important that clients are informed and prepared.

Hear endocrinologist, Professor Tim Greenaway’s guidance for healthcare professionals to support the transition from LANTUS:OPTISULIN is now widely available in community pharmacy with no supply issues.1
