I just took one at noon and will see how it does. Person who took at bedtime - doctor's order. I would be afraid to take it then for fear of night lows which may be occurring. I take 120 mg Starlix before each meal and see if it will be necessary with the new.

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.
