I take 2 metformin 500 ER pills every night and one 5mg onglyza and my numbers had dropped dramatically from 154 to 118 after using onglyza for 2 weeks along with Metformin.

Comment:
Numbers are down to normal or near normal range. No noticeable adverse side effects. I was diagnosed in 1990 and was treated for two years, lost several pounds and quit taking glucotrol. Recently had a TIA and was put on onglyza. After two weeks numbers were in normal range again. Expensive but my insurance is good so far.

"A bone spur forms as the body tries to repair itself by building extra bone." Am now wondering if this is the side effect for the lumps on my legs.

Comment:
Can't say it is working very well for me; but have noticed I'm having more headaches and a ridiculously high craving for sweets. I think I was better off without the Onglyza.
