Brief Answer:
they are the same...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

although they are different drugs, their dosage is the same when switching from one to the other. When we switch from lantus to levemir (or vice-versa) we need the same number of units per day to achieve the same result. Remaining vigilant for hypo- or hyper-glycemia is warranted anyway. It would be a new drug for you and you can never be 100% sure before you try... I'm sure everything will be fine!

I hope you find my comments helpful!
You can contact me again, if you'd like any clarification or further information.

Kind Regards!
