Comment:
I have reduced my medication because of high amounts of exercise. I need to take 1/2 of dosage of 1.25/250 so I cut tablets. However, the brand name is no longer manufactured. I can't take generic - I get wheezing, mucus, nasal swelling and cough from probably the coating or other stuff in pill. Any ideas?

Comment:
I HAVE BEEN ON THIS MEDICATION FOR 8 YEARS AND IT HAS WORKED VERY EFFECTIVELY. IF TAKEN EVERY 12 HOURS IT SEEMS TO HELP CONTROL THE SUGAR LEVEL. I HAVE HAD TO ADD JANUVIA IN THE MORNINGS NOW. BUT THE BIGGEST FACTOR IS WATCHING WHAT YOU EAT AND QUANTITY. I AM ALLOWED TO TAKE A SMALL BITE ONCE IN A WHILE OF SOMETHING SWEET, BUT IT USUALLY WASN'T WORTH THE SUGAR INCREASE, MUST EXERCISE IF YOU ... Show Full Comment
