Daily Life Interactions for Apidra SoloStar 100units/ml Pre-Filled Pen Solution for Injection

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Alcohol and Apidra SoloStar 100units/ml Pre-Filled Pen Solution for Injection(Insulin Glulisine)
Alcohol and Insulin(Insulin Glulisine)
It is best to limit the ingestion of alcohol during use of insulin. Alcohol can increase the risk for severe or prolonged low blood sugar. If you do choose to drink alcohol, make sure you do not take it on an empty stomach. Frequently monitor your blood sugar. Know the signs and symptoms of low blood sugar and how to treat them. Do not drive or operate machinery, or perform other hazardous tasks while ingesting alcohol.
Minor Lifestyle Interaction
Tobacco and Apidra SoloStar 100units/ml Pre-Filled Pen Solution for Injection(Insulin Glulisine)
Tobacco and Insulin(Insulin Glulisine)
If you use tobacco or are trying to quit tobacco use, you may need to monitor your blood sugar more frequently. Nicotine, a component of tobacco, can increase the blood sugar. Also, if you are trying to quit smoking, as your body adjusts to not smoking, your blood sugar levels may change; the actions of Antidiabetic Agents (medicines used to treat diabetes) may be increased and this could lead to low blood sugar. Know the symptoms of low or high blood sugar and report them if they occur. Monitor your blood sugar regularly.
