Patti - I sent you a friend request w/a msg not realizing I would run out of space so quickly :P To continue that msg - I have experienced the bad night time lows to and find that it is really important to have a snack at bedtime (if you continue to take it then). I used to take it in the morning, though in addition to it not working for me, I did not like having to take 2 needles (bc of breakfast). Anyways, I went off my Lantus while I was pregnant (ended up on Humalin N and gained an insane amount of weight -argh!- that took nearly two years to lose...sorry, side bar!) and when I went back on to it I experienced a lot of bad night lows, but it seemed to settle once my dosing was sorted (that changed a lot - when I went back on after my baby I was taking 30+ U at bedtime!). I still have bad lows at night (whether that is Lantus or me), but not with a worrying frequency. I hope that you are able to sort things and wish I had better advice...feel free to drop a note if you want to chat more :) Bec
