I have been on the 100mg about a month and my blood sugar is in normal ranges. It was running 250 to 300 even on insulin. I have cut my insulin back 50% and so far no side effects. Wonder drug so far.

I have taken this medicine for over 5 months. I have lost 35 lbs. and can not believe how easy it has been. Sure I have to urinate at least every 5 hours. But that is a small price to pay for the results!
