Lantus (insulin glargine) is a long-acting type of insulin. Insulin helps to control blood sugar levels in diabetes mellitus, including diabetes type 1 and diabetes type 2. Lantus is more popular than other insulins. There are currently no generic alternatives for any insulin, but there is an alternative insulin with the same active ingredient as Lantus.
