Has anyone else had this reaction to Lantus? I went off my pump about a year and a half ago, and have been on Lantus since then. Around the same time, I starting having issues with my energy levels. I thought it was from being tired from a month-long Europe trip, but it's gotten progressively worse. I feel awful about 27/30 days out of the month. Best way to describe the symptoms are "drugged-up zombie." My endo was saying it was hormones and my higher A1C, but the exhaustion has been way more than that. I have no idea how I have kept a job and friends lately. Last week, I couldn't find my Lantus bottle so I used my backup NPH for the day. The weirdest thing happened... I felt *normal*. I didn't attribute it to the NPH so I took Lantus the next few days... And went back to feeling awful. I looked up whether a side effect of Lantus is "drugged-up zombie", and couldn't find anything... But gave NPH a try again and haven't felt awful since then. I've cried everyday because it means that all the exhaustion hasn't been in my head and I feel like myself for the first time in a year and a half. Plus, my dosing is sooo much more predictable even though NPH does have a peak.
This is so weird... I have an endo appointment next week and will talk with the Dr about it then... Just wondering if anyone else has had a "drugged-up zombie" reaction to Lantus or another synthetic insulin.
