In most cases, your symptoms will have already begun improving before you start receiving Sandostatin LAR. Before being given Sandostatin LAR, you should have already been receiving immediate-release Sandostatin. Some people feel improvement within a week or so after beginning Sandostatin. Once you switch to the long-acting Sandostatin LAR, your doctor may recommend that you continue taking the immediate-release version for a few weeks. This will help ensure that your symptoms remain under control.
