I've use several types before but wanted to try the "my gift" (anascii) thing lol.
I can search around but I'd rather post to maybe help others to avoid asking this again.

I wanted to do 50iu in the morning

Start with 5-10iu morning and night, 50 is way to much. 20iu would be around the prescribed dose for a 200lbs person starting insulin therapy taken at night before bed.

They have a dosage calculator on their website

from what i have read, if u want to use the pen the way it was designed, you need to get the pen needles. or u can draw from the pen itself i believe but not sure if u have to take out the full dose or not.

Also some popular gent says use every not skip days.
and mentioned one doesn't need to cycle this as it doesn't mess with endo insulin.
Maybe that was lavimir

You dial the dose that you want to take, ex 10 = 10 iu, 80 = 80iu

Also why is there no way you would do lantus 2x per day? its not a true 24 hour insulin and 2x per day dosing will give better blood sugar control

How dependent/ insulin resistant you become on it will depend on your diet. if you do not eat any thing extra you will be ok, if you start eating more food/carbs then that can lead to fat gain and decreased insulin sensetivity

because it's extended release it's not going to have the same effect on your blood sugar levels as taking humalog or other faster acting insulin. 10iu of humalog would require some carbs up front, 10iu of lantus spread over 12 hours typically means you can eat pretty normal.

because you don't need anything extra over what you are already eating, 10iu/12 hours is .8iu per hour, just enough to assist your own pancreas in keeping blood sugar down

So if I do get to 50. I wonder how many carbs I should take.
Probably my standard bulk which is 600 maybe a lil more.

First off, get a blood glucose meter. Take fasted blood glucose reading in the morning to determine what your doses should be.

No need to add carbs to your current diet because you're on lantus. Just eat your normal diet.
