i know that 75 pens a day multiply by 90 days is 6750. where from that 1500 in a box and 5 boxes in all? can you please help me?

Like what anonymous said, there are 1500 units in 1 box of 5 pens. If you do the math...

1 box = 5 pens
1 pen = 3 ml
1 ml = 100 units

So, 6750/1500 = 4.5

**But you can not break a box (well, not in our pharmacy as per my Pharmacist won't do it. I don't know other pharmacy though).

Anonymous rounded it of to 5 boxes.

(Then of course, there's the insurance problem that they'll only allow maximum of 90 days and that's another story. :))

How to calculate answer......

Lantus comes in 300 unit per ml pen, packaged
5 pens to a box( 1500 units)
75 units x 90 days = 6750 units
Divided by 1500 units is 4.5 boxes
Since boxes aren't opened, you need 5 boxes to fill
