What is Apidra SoloStar Pens?

Apidra SoloStar Pens are used for injecting Apidra, a fast-acting insulin approved by the FDA. Apidra helps manage high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes. Dosages may need adjusting due to changes in activity, weight, stress, illness, diet, or other medications. 

Apidra is usually taken shortly before or after meals to control blood sugar levels. It can also be used with external insulin pumps for continuous subcutaneous infusion. 

However, its safety and effectiveness in children under 4 years old with type 1 diabetes or in children with type 2 diabetes have not been established.

How Does Apidra SoloStar Pens Work?

Apidra SoloStar Pens help manage blood sugar by regulating glucose metabolism. The active ingredient, insulin glulisine, lowers blood sugar levels by increasing glucose uptake in muscles and fat tissues and reducing glucose production by the liver. 

This dual action keeps blood sugar levels normal for people with diabetes. The pens deliver precise doses of insulin glulisine to effectively control high blood sugar.

Dosage Information and Usage

Dosage Form and Strengths of Apidra SoloStar Pens

  • 3 mL single-patient-use Apidra SoloStar prefilled pen
  • Contains 100 units per mL (U-100), a clear and colorless solution

Usage

1. Prepare for an Injection:

  • Review the full instructions that come with your Apidra SoloStar pen.
  • Check the label to ensure you are using the correct insulin.

2. Attach a New Needle:

  • Attach a new needle, keeping it straight. Apidra SoloStar uses push-on or screw-on needles.

3. Perform a Safety Test:

  • Perform a safety test to remove air bubbles and ensure the pen and needle are working properly.
  • Select a dose of 2 units.
  • Remove the outer needle cap and keep it for later. Remove and discard the inner needle cap.
  • Hold the pen with the needle pointing up, and gently tap the reservoir to move any air bubbles to the top.
  • Press the injection button in and check if insulin comes out of the needle.
  • If no insulin comes out, repeat the test up to two more times. If still no insulin, try a new needle.

4. Select Your Dose:

  • Ensure the dose window shows “0” after the safety test.
  • Select your required dose in 1-unit steps. For doses larger than 80 units, use multiple injections.

5. Inject Your Dose:

  • Insert the needle into your upper arm, abdomen, or thigh as instructed by your healthcare provider.
  • Press the injection button, hold it, slowly count to 10, then withdraw the needle.

6. Remove the Needle:

  • Remove the needle after each injection. Use the outer needle cap to unscrew the needle from the pen.
  • Dispose of the needle safely, as instructed by your healthcare provider (e.g., in a sharps container).
  • Put the cap back on the pen.

Additional Tips:

  • If you encounter issues, try changing the needle and repeating the safety test.
  • Each Apidra SoloStar pen is for use by one person only.
  • Always read the instruction leaflet that comes with your pen for additional important information.

Storage Information

Store Apidra SoloStar pens in their original carton with the Instructions for Use. Do not freeze them. Do not use the pens after the expiration date on the carton. 

If unopened, keep the pen refrigerated at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C) and protect it from light. Once in use, keep the pen at room temperature (up to 77°F or 25°C) for up to 28 days. 

Do not refrigerate the pen once it’s in use. If using Apidra in an insulin pump, change the insulin in the pump reservoir at least every 48 hours, or as per the pump manual, especially if exposed to temperatures above 98.6°F (37°C).

Side Effects of Apidra SoloStar Pens

Common Side Effects

  • Rash
  • Swelling
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Weight gain
  • Itching
  • Allergic reactions, including reactions at the injection site
  • Skin thickening or pits at the injection site (lipodystrophy)

Serious but Rare Side Effects

  • Severe low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
    • Dizziness
    • Sweating
    • Confusion
    • Headache
    • Blurred vision
    • Fast heartbeat
    • Shakiness
  • Severe allergic reaction (whole body reaction)
    • Rash
    • Shortness of breath
    • Fast pulse
    • Feeling faint
  • Low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalemia)
  • Heart failure, especially if taken with certain diabetes medications called TZDs (thiazolidinediones)
    • Shortness of breath
    • Swelling of ankles or feet
    • Sudden weight gain

Warnings and Precautions

  • Never Share an Apidra SoloStar Pen or Syringe or Needle between Patients: Sharing insulin pens, syringes, or needles between patients increases the risk of transmitting blood-borne pathogens, potentially leading to serious infections.
  • Hyperglycemia or Hypoglycemia with Changes in Insulin Regimen: Changes in insulin type, strength, injection site, or administration method may affect blood sugar levels, increasing the risk of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia. Patients should make changes under medical supervision and monitor blood glucose levels closely.
  • Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, is a common and potentially life-threatening side effect of insulin therapy. Patients should be able to recognize symptoms and regularly monitor their blood glucose levels. Immediate treatment with glucose or carbohydrates is necessary if hypoglycemia occurs.
  • Hypokalemia: Insulins, including Apidra, may cause potassium to shift from the bloodstream into cells, potentially leading to low potassium levels (hypokalemia). Patients at risk should be monitored, and potassium levels should be managed appropriately.
  • Hypersensitivity Reactions: Severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, can occur with Apidra. Patients who develop symptoms such as rash, shortness of breath, or swelling should discontinue Apidra and seek immediate medical attention.
  • Fluid Retention and Heart Failure with Concurrent Use of PPAR-Gamma Agonists: Thiazolidinediones (TZDs), when used with insulin-like Apidra, can cause fluid retention and exacerbate heart failure. Patients should be monitored for signs of heart failure, and TZD therapy may need adjustment or discontinuation.
  • Hyperglycemia and Ketoacidosis Due to Insulin Pump Device Malfunction: Malfunction of insulin pumps or infusion sets can lead to hyperglycemia and ketoacidosis. Patients using insulin pumps should be trained to administer insulin by injection in case of pump failure and should have a backup insulin plan.

Overdosage of Apidra SoloStar Pens

In cases of Apidra overdose, too much insulin can lead to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and, if given directly into a vein, low potassium levels (hypokalemia).

Hypokalemia means potassium levels in the blood are too low. It’s important to correct low potassium levels to keep the body’s electrolytes balanced.

Severe hypoglycemia can cause serious issues like coma, seizures, or brain problems. Hypoglycemia is when blood sugar levels drop too low. Mild hypoglycemia can often be treated by eating or drinking sugar. To prevent it from happening again, insulin dosage, meal timing, or exercise may need to be adjusted.

For severe cases, emergency treatment with a glucagon shot or strong sugar solution through a vein may be needed. Continuous intake of carbohydrates and close monitoring are required because low blood sugar can come back after initial treatment.

Drug Interactions With Other Medications

Apidra may interact with other medications, affecting blood sugar levels.

  • Drugs Increasing Risk of Hypoglycemia: Certain medications like antidiabetic agents (used to treat diabetes), ACE inhibitors (used for hypertension and heart conditions), and fluoxetine (an antidepressant) may increase the risk of low blood sugar. Patients should monitor blood glucose levels more frequently and may need adjustments to their Apidra dose to prevent hypoglycemia.
  • Drugs Decreasing Blood Glucose Lowering Effect: Medications such as corticosteroids (used for inflammation), diuretics (used for fluid retention), and estrogens (hormones) can reduce Apidra’s effectiveness in lowering blood sugar. Dose adjustments and increased glucose monitoring may be necessary to maintain adequate blood sugar control when these medications are used together with Apidra.
  • Drugs Affecting Blood Glucose Levels: Alcohol and beta-blockers (used for heart conditions) can either increase or decrease Apidra’s blood sugar-lowering effect. Alcohol consumption can lead to unpredictable changes in blood sugar levels, while beta-blockers may mask symptoms of low blood sugar, making it harder for patients to recognize hypoglycemia.
  • Drugs Blunting Signs of Hypoglycemia: Medications like beta-blockers and clonidine (used for hypertension) may mask symptoms of low blood sugar, such as rapid heartbeat or sweating. This can delay the recognition of hypoglycemia, potentially leading to serious complications if left untreated.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The shelf life of an unopened Apidra SoloSTAR pen that is not refrigerated is 28 days. Once opened and in use, the pen should not be refrigerated but stored below 77°F (25°C), away from direct heat and light. It must be discarded if kept at room temperature for more than 28 days.

The Apidra SoloSTAR pen is available only with a prescription from your healthcare provider. 

The Apidra SoloStar insulin pen (insulin glulisine) helps control high blood sugar in people with diabetes when combined with a proper diet and exercise. Effectively managing blood sugar levels can reduce the risk of complications like kidney damage, blindness, nerve issues, limb loss, and sexual function problems associated with diabetes.

If there’s not enough insulin left in your Apidra SoloSTAR pen for your full dose, you can still complete your injection. Calculate how much more insulin you need from a new pen.

For example, if you normally take 41 units and only 12 units are left in your current pen, you’ll need 29 units from a new pen. First, inject the remaining insulin from the old pen, then use the new pen to finish your dose. Alternatively, you can use a new pen for the entire dose.

Keep the Apidra SoloSTAR pen in a cool place below 77°F (25°C), away from heat and light. Do not refrigerate it. Once opened, discard it after 28 days, even if there is insulin left.

To use the Apidra SoloSTAR pen, attach a new needle, dial your dose, inject it into your skin, and remove the needle after each use.

No, Apidra and Lantus are different. They serve distinct purposes and have unique effects. Lantus SoloSTAR pen contains long-acting insulin, while the Apidra SoloSTAR pen has rapid-acting insulin. Always check the pen’s label to make sure you’re using the correct type of insulin for your diabetes management.

Apidra SoloSTAR pen contains insulin glulisine injection at a concentration of 100 units per mL (U-100).

Apidra, containing insulin glulisine, is a fast-acting insulin that starts working around 15 minutes after injection. It peaks in about 1 hour and keeps lowering blood glucose levels for 2 to 4 hours after injection.

No, do not share your Apidra SoloSTAR pen with anyone, even if you change the needle. Sharing the pen could cause serious infections for both parties. Use the pen only for your prescribed insulin to avoid health risks.
