Tresiba prescription FAQs

  • How much does Tresiba cost?

    You will find many factors that affect the cost of insulin degludec. You should take note of the dose that you are prescribed. The 100 units ml option comes at a lower price compared to a higher dose of Tresiba. Another thing that affects the cost is the type of Tresiba that you get. Tresiba Flextouch may come at a different price than containers that hold the liquid.

  • How can I refill my Tresiba prescription?

    If you have a repeat script for insulin degludec, then you simply need to go to your local pharmacy once every month to pick up your prescription.

  • How long can you keep Tresiba out of the fridge?

    Since Tresiba Flextouch and other forms of the medication use live organisms, the storage instructions are often not the same as regular insulin treatments. You can leave this medication out of the fridge as long as it remains below 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The insulin degludec will remain usable for a period of up to eight weeks.

  • What happens to Tresiba if it is not refrigerated?

    Even when you already started to use a Tresiba Flextouch pen, it is unlikely to decline in its efficacy to control high blood sugar if you do not add it to the refrigerator.

  • Can you take Tresiba after eating?

    Tresiba is not a short-acting insulin treatment. The insulin dose that you get from an injection site will work over a long period of time. This is because the medicine helps to control your blood sugar levels by gradually releasing into the bloodstream. Do not take the medication after you have a meal. Instead, stick to the instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

  • How long does it take for Tresiba to kick in?

    Even though not a rapid-acting option, the insulin dose you get from your Tresiba Flextouch should start to work within the first 60 minutes after you take it. The main ingredient, insulin degludec, will continue to remain active in your system for an extended duration of time. Each dose of Tresiba lasts for around 42 hours. This is why the medication often allows for easy adjustments and more freedom.

  • Who should not take Tresiba?

    A daily dose of Tresiba is usually not advisable for people with insulin resistance but rather only for those with diabetes mellitus. You also need to avoid other medications that could affect your blood sugar levels. Each dose of Tresiba that you administer can further increase the risk of low blood sugar in this case. There are also clinically significant drug interactions that you should be wary of. Tell your doctor about any other drugs that you will use with this insulin dose. Do not use Tresiba Flextouch if you have problems with low blood sugar or have experienced allergic reactions to similar drugs in the past. Talk to your doctor about treating diabetes mellitus if you previously experienced diabetic ketoacidosis.

  • What happens if I miss a dose of Tresiba?

    If you have a missed dose as part of your insulin regimen, then Tresiba offers flexibility. You should take the next insulin dose once you remember. This is because each insulin dose of degludec remains active in your system for up to 42 hours. With this said, even with the lower 100 units ml dose, timing is still something to remember. Your dose of Tresiba should not be within an eight-hour window of the previous insulin dose you injected.

  • What happens if I take too much Tresiba?

    • Too much insulin degludec can cause low blood sugar. It can also make allergic reactions to the drugs more severe. This is why blood glucose monitoring is vital when you use this drug to manage your blood sugar levels. Blood glucose monitoring can help you identify low blood sugar when you use insulin degludec.
