Brought my glucose levels down to normal range with a proper diet. I use the Carb. counting method. I take the medication in the morning with my breakfast. I have even lost some weight. No side effects experienced. I do eat three times a day with snacks in between and a bedtime snack also.

Comment:
glipizide XL 10 does not work for me. It must not be breaking down in my system. the 5XL works better than the ten XL. I take the tens 3x a day and the 5XL 3 x a day Plus I take the regular 5's if I need to bring my insulin level down more. I'm trying to see another doctor to see if I require another medication as I don't think the 10's are breaking down in my system.
