No, Lantus should not be diluted or mixed with other insulin or solution. If mixed, the solution can turn cloudy. The time to peak and onset of action can also be altered in an unpredictable manner when mixed with other insulin or solution. Hypoglycemia is the most common side-effect observed with Lantus and hence precautions should be taken to inject it as prescribed.
