Levemir prescription FAQs
How does Levemir work?
Like other types of insulin, Levemir helps blood sugar (glucose) get into your cells so that your body can use it for energy. It may be used with short-acting insulin or other diabetes medications.
What Are the Associated Dosages and Treatments for Levemir?
Always follow your doctor's dosing instructions. Your dosage of Levemir will vary depending on your health condition and blood sugar levels. Levemir should be injected under the skin of the abdomen, upper arms, or thighs once or twice a day. If taken once a day, it should be taken at bedtime or with the last meal of the day.
What Are the Benefits of Levemir?
Levemir provides your body with a low, steady dose of insulin throughout the day, which helps lower your blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can cause blindness, loss of limbs, kidney damage, nerve problems, and sexual dysfunction. Since Levemir lowers blood sugar, it helps reduce the risk of developing any of those problems.
What Are the Side Effects of Levemir?
As with any medication, Levemir does come with a risk of side effects. While most people can take Levemir without experiencing any side effects, you may experience things like:
Injection site reactions
Low blood sugar
Increased heart rate
Low blood potassium
Skin rash or itching
Hollowing or thickening of the skin where you did the injection
Severe allergic reaction
What Are the Considerations and Precautions of Levemir?
While Levemir is generally considered a safe medication, it isn't appropriate for everybody. Always tell your doctor about your medical history and your current medications to prevent potentially serious complications.
What Are the Interactions of Levemir?
Levemir may cause interactions with other medications. Make sure to tell your doctor about every medication you take, including over the counter medication, supplements, and vitamins. Be especially certain to mention if you take any of the following:
Beta-blocker medications like metoprolol or propranolol
Other diabetes medications
What Are Other Levemir Considerations?
Use of Levemir may be more complicated if you have certain health conditions. Be sure to tell your doctor about your entire medical history. Definitely make sure you mention any of the following:
Adrenal/pituitary gland problems
Currently hypoglycemic (have low blood sugar)
Low potassium levels
What to Know About Levemir for Pregnancy or Breastfeeding
Pregnancy may worsen diabetes. It is crucial to carefully monitor your blood sugar levels during pregnancy and stay in constant touch with your doctor to determine appropriate dosage levels for Levemir. While Levemir is considered safe during pregnancy, your dosage may change throughout your pregnancy.
Levemir does pass into breast milk, but it is unlikely to harm a baby and is probably safe to use while breastfeeding. However, you should talk to your doctor because your dosage of Levemir may change while you are breastfeeding.
Can You Buy Levemir Online?
When trying to buy Levemir online, you must be cautious. You may find websites that claim they can mail prescription medication from other countries. However, federal law requires everybody to speak to a doctor before getting any prescription medication, so these websites are skirting the law.
Fortunately, there is a legal, safe, and trusted way to get a Levemir prescription online. With PlushCare, you can avoid a trip to your doctor's office with a phone or video appointment with one of our licensed doctors. If that doctor believes that Levemir is right for you, they can electronically send a prescription to your local pharmacy.
How does it work? You can make an appointment any time of day or night.
At the beginning of your scheduled appointment time, you will be asked to supply your current medications and complete medical history. This helps to avoid potentially serious medication errors.
Then, you'll discuss your symptoms and concerns with one of our doctors and talk about if Levemir is right for you. If they decide that you would benefit from Levemir (or a different medication), they can send an electronic prescription to your preferred pharmacy, where you pick it up when it's ready.
It really is that easy to buy Levemir online.
