Exenatide is approved for use inserh basal insulin.

An insulin glargine dose titration algorithm is in the exenatide package insert. When added to insulin detemir, a reduction in the dose of insulin detemir may be needed to reduce hypoglycemia; the insulin detemir package label recommends a dose of insulin detemir 10 units subcutaneously once daily when combining with a GLP-1 receptor agonist. Administer at any time of day, with or without meals.
