A patient brings in a prescription for Lantus insulin 10 units subQ once daily. There are
100 units/mL of Lantus insulin and 10 mL of Lantus insulin per vial, so 100 units/mL x 10 mL = 1000 units.
What is the days’ supply for one vial of Lantus?

1000 units x 1 day/10 units = x days
x = 100 days

Note that the vial of Lantus is only good for 28 days once opened or stored out of the fridge. So in this case, you will need to default to a days’ supply of 28 days since the patient should discard any remaining med after this time.
