I am having dry mouth and sweating at night. Not lowering my glucose as much as it probably should.

Comment:
I, too, have had night sweats but didn't relate it to the medicine until I read the other reviews. My insurance won't pay for it so it is quite expensive. It has not helped with lowering my blood sugar.

After being on the medication for a couple of days I noticed drenching night sweats and a rise in my B/P due to retaining of water. I've tried to start this med twice with the same results. Also sever leg cramps. Will not take it again.

Since starting onglyza my blood sugars are lower in AM, I use less insulin during the day, less lantus at bedtime . Cost is ridiculously high.Only side effect for me is morning leg cramps 3-4 times a week.

Comment:
Blood glucose was well within acceptable ranges for 4-6 weeks, after that they began to graduaolly increase. The whole time I have been taking this I have had multiple (6-8 times a day) incidences of complete whole body drenching sweating. This is enough to cause be to seek another medication. I will call the dr seeking an alternative medication.
