### Comments for Lantus Solostar

 Lantus by: Anonymous 75 units x 90 days is 6750 unitsthere are 1500 units in each box of 5 pens6750/1500=5 boxes

 Need help by: Anonymous How do you know the number of units in each box?

 lantus solostar pens that a Doctor orders by: Anonymous 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?

 Lantus by: JAM Like what anonymous said, there are 1500 units in 1 box of 5 pens. If you do the math...1 box = 5 pens1 pen = 3 ml1 ml = 100 unitsSo, 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...... by: Pt Mike Lantus comes in 300 unit per ml pen, packaged5 pens to a box( 1500 units)75 units x 90 days = 6750 unitsDivided by 1500 units is 4.5 boxesSince boxes aren't opened, you need 5 boxes to fill Prescription

 Lantus by: Anonymous You would dispense 5 boxesMember is needing qt. of 75u/dayEach box is 15 or 1500 mls90*75=6750 ml 6750/1500=4.5 boxes but since the boxes can't be broken 5 boxes would have to be dispensed.15*5=75
