Soliqua® is an injection that contains two medications: Insulin Glargine and Lixisenatide.

Insulin glargine is long-acting and helps to lower blood sugar throughout the day.
Lixisenatide works by slowing the movement of food from your stomach to the small intestine, hence slowing down absorption of sugars into the body. It also regulates the amount of insulin made by your body in a sugar-dependent manner.
