    Lantus should be taken at the same time every day. Your doctor will give you instructions on what to do if you miss a dose. Maintaining a proper balance of insulin and sugar in the body is important to avoid possibly serious side effects from hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, including coma and death. You should not take more than one dose of Lantus in a 24 hour period unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.
