I have beeb taking this medication for 5 days now and I hate it. I feel tired all day, dizziness,nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach upsets. The worst side effect is the nausea. I hope the side effects go away soon. I don't know how much more of this I can take...

Comment:
I was on this drug in addition to metformin for about 4 months and gained almost 20 pounds. My doctor finally told me that weight gain was a MAJOR side effect of this drug. As I have RA I am trying to stay smaller and now I am stuck with this weigh that does not want to go away. I will say my sugars have not been as stable with out it but I have gone to strictly insulin now and it is helping.
