really hoping this will work so I won't have to do insulin, but I can't tell much difference in #'s so far.. 300mg, I didn't want, so I asked for 100mg..Seems like my mouth is SO DRY most of the time, and I'm trying to stay hydrated too! Med has only been out since March 2013, so still very new.. I'm also not taking my regular fluid/bp pill, so I'm having swelling in my ... Show Full Comment
