I recently switched for Novolog to Apidra in my insulin pump. I have heard mixed reviews but so far I have been doing okay with it. The reason for switching was because Apidra is supposed to have a faster MOA than Novolog and I needed that for work.
Additionally, its free through my insurance and I was paying 100.00 a month for novolog! It is because of THIS reason I am determined to make the Apidra work... 100.00 a month of ALOT of extra money.
My question is as follows, how often do most of you leave the Apidra in your pump. I typically left my novolog in for a week which it was approved for, but Apidra say no longer than 48 hours! I only get enough infusion sets to change my site every 3 days so that's concerning. Just wondering if anyone has had success leaving it in the cartridge for longer than 2 days?
So far I can't tell if I need more insulin using Apidra which a lot of people have mentioned on here, but that's cause I sick so my numbers are all over the place right now anyways.
