    I was on Janumet but decided I did not want to risk cancer so the doctor put me on 2mg of glimepiride and 1000mg of metformin. It has been great just have to watch low blood sugar when working harder than usual. I have since dropped to 1 mg a day, I wish Metformin did not tear up my stomach as bad as it does.

    Struggled with Metformin and Onglyza duo for a year or so. Dr. added 2mg glimepiride and BAMM - numbers are much lower. A1C dropped dramatically from over 7 to 5.0. Just make sure you have steady meals as it does drop glucose levels to the 70s if you're not eating at normal intervals. Overall, very good so far.

    went from 1mg, then 2mg and did not help blood sugar. Two days ago was switched to 4mg and my blood sugar has sored. 289 yesterday and 233 today, after meals check. Had to quit taking metformin due to kidneys. Why would the stronger dose make my blood sugar go way up? Had lettuce salad with chicken strips the first day and veggies with smoked beef sausage the second day.
