    At first, I suffered from increased UTI's but that subsided over 3-6 months. Lost 10 pounds and A1C dropped from 11.2 to 7.0 over six months. I do get up at least once each night to urinate, but a lot of that is due to my increased intake of water to stay hydrated. Overall I am pleased with this drug and have had minimal side effects.

    I had nearly 3/4 of the side effects from this med. I take Atenolol as well and this med just messed me up in ways I had never experienced before. I took MYSELF off it. I dont have Type2 but am PRE type 2 and have been for over 40 years due to PCOS.
