My doc put me on that toujeo stuff, I gained weight same as you all, felt like crap it was the same 70 units as I was taking with lantus. He said something about it last longer and other stuff. I had enough told him I want lantus back and someone needs to figure out where to put all these toujeo pens that I got cause I'm not taking it anymore. He said he had no lantus samples and the company wasn't giving him any the lantus people wants me on toujeo cause their patent was coming up so they stopped sampling it!!!! He offered me a levemir sample he said it had less weight gain than lantus and was the same., plus the levemir company still samples, I have been on this stuff for three weeks, I don't feel sluggish after taking it, I feel great, and the pen is nice!
Is it possible that with the hip surgery your less active and that is why you have weight gain?
I googled Toujeo its a new version of Lantus.
I know it's the toujeo that's making me put on weight. I went back on lantus 4 days ago. 8 pounds r gone. Following the same vegan vegetarian diet. I'll b calling my doctor tomorrow. I'm staying on lantus. And my numbers have been great.
No the weight came on before. I was on this medication 3 weeks before my surgery. Before taking toujeo I lost 15 pound eating vegan vegetarian. So as I'm seeing the pounds go up I'm like wtf. U get me. Weight gain is a side effect of toujeo being that I liked it up . So I'm going back to my lantus.
How are your BG Numbers, Many have found that Levemir does not last a full 24 hours.
I have gained weight while being on Toujeo as well - I have been on it for 4 months - I gained 17lbs in the first 3 months and I feel like I have gained about 10 more in the last month. Toujeo is not for everyone!
