    Been taking this med for 2 months and first symptom is heavy thirst. Dropped a few pounds but that reversed. Many trip to the bathroom during waking hours. Recent warning for Ketoacidosis but have not test to confirm. May stop med after this round runs out.

    Beware you will lose bladder control with this medication to the point that you will pee in your pants. Also makes you very thirsty. I took it for a few weeks and will not take it again.
