Drug Information

About Apidra SoloSTAR

What is Apidra SoloSTAR?

Apidra SoloSTAR is a prescription medication that is classified as a rapid-acting insulin


What is Apidra SoloSTAR used for?

It is used for the treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2 diabetes mellitus to help improve glycemic control.

How does it work?

It increases glucose uptake and inhibits hepatic glucose production which affects glucose metabolism and exerts its glucose-lowering effects.


How do I take Apidra SoloSTAR?

Step 1: Check the label on your SoloSTAR to make sure that you are using the correct insulin.

Step 2: You will need to attach a new needle with each use. Keep the needle as straight as possible when attaching it to your pen. The Apidra SoloSTAR uses screw-on or push-on needles.

Step 3: Perform a safety test to remove any air bubbles and ensure that your pen and needle are working correctly. Select a dose of 2 units. Make sure to always perform a safety test prior to each injection.

Remove the outer needle cap and keep it to remove the needle later after your injection. Then take off the inner needle cap and dispose of it in a sharps container. 

Hold the pen upright, with the need pointing upwards. Gently tap the reservoir to remove any air bubbles that are in the needle. 

Press the injection button all the way inwards and check if any insulin comes out of the needle. If no insulin, check for air bubbles and repeat the safety test two more times. If no insulin comes out a third time, try the safety test again with a new needle.

Step 4: Make sure that the dose window shows “0” after performing the safety test. Then select your prescribed insulin dose in 1-unit steps. If your required dose is > 80 units, you will need to use 2 or more injections.

Step 5: Use the injection method that your doctor or pharmacist showed you. You will either inject the needle subcutaneously in your upper arm, stomach area (abdomen), or thigh (upper leg).

Press the injection button all the way in. Hold the button in that position and slowly count to 10. Then, withdraw the needle.

Step 6: You must remove the needle after each injection and dispose of it appropriately in a sharps container. Place the outer needle cap back on the needle and use it to unscreen the needle from the pen.

Important: Injection sites should always be rotated within the same region (upper arm, stomach area, or thigh). This is to decrease the risk of lipodystrophy.
