    This was added along with 1000 mg. metformin and within 3 days i was down from the mid 200's to a 99 on a morning fast test. Also, no side effects like the metformin.

    Just started taking this medication. Had previously been on Metformin but had side effects. This medication seems to be working with no side effects.

    I take 5mg along with 1500 mg of Metformin daily for Type 2 diabetes. With the addition of this medication my blood sugar levels dropped where the doctor wanted them - lower than 150. Along with diet changes and exercise I get occasional loose stools especially after greasy meals. I do get regular (6 month) check ups for nerve damage, check toes, and an eye exam yearly.
