Works for me but after turning 65 and on Medicare D I will have to stop using it. Ins will not pay. Only side affect I have noticed is dehydration and my LDL has increased. Drug company gave it to be free but after starting Medicare they stopped. Doesn't make sense since I can't afford it now that I'm on Social Security

I have not had any unusual symptoms with this medication. It does make you urinate often and you should prepare a plan for hydrating yourself for the fist two or three weeks. It normalizes after a while. I haven't had my A1C taken yet (next month) so I can't say that I have lowered my blood sugars. I have lost weight though and didn't really try that hard. Several days upon rising my b ... Show Full Comment

I have lost 21 lbs. but my A1C has raised considerably in teh last few months. My doctor just now told me I should be taking Metformin with it! I had two bladder infections in teh beginning. Now I still have burning and itching. I felt it was worth it due to weight loss. Now I'm afraid to stop taking this and going to the traditional diabetic meds because I don't want to gain the weig ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking the 100mg once a day along with Glucophage 1000mg 2x daily, Actos 45mg once daily, and Glimeperide 4mg 2x daily. I had excessive urination the first 2 weeks but that has slowed down a bit. No urinary tract or yeast infections. Drinking plenty of fluids helps. A1C went from 8.1 to 6.6 and within the first 30 days my glimepiride was cut to 2mg. This is working great for me.

Lowers my blood/sugar all day. I've cut back on my glipizide and Lantus. Some nights I don't use the lantus at all. I've been taking it for eight weeks and I've lost 6lbs!. My A1C is also dropping. Very satisfied with this drug. I do urinate more often but that's fine with me. I drink 4, 16oz bottles of water a day too.
