    This has really been beneficial - I couldn't get my A1C down on the highest dose of Metformin alone. In six months, it has dropped from 8.4 to 7.1 with zero side effects. They said it could possibly lower your blood sugar and you'd get really dizzy, but I am always anyway so haven't noticed a difference!

    I was taking 1000mg metformin 2x/da. A1C kept rising; daily meter readings were erratic. Started glimepiride; no change in A1C; readings were quite high in a.m. Started 30 units of insulin; A1C dropped from 9 to 7.9 to 6.8; morning readings still very high; afternoon/evening readings often drop to 45-60.

    I was taking Glimepiride(1mg,1/day), it was working well. I had a new doctor, and she switched me to Metformin (500mg, 2/day). With Glimepiride, my A1C dropped from 6.4 to 5.7 in six months but with Metformin my A1C went from 5.7 to 7.8 in 8 months, and with terrible dizzy spells and nausea. So I am now back to Glimepiride! No liver or kidney problem!!!
