It's not bringing my blood sugars down, no matter what I eat or don't eat. I'm slowly increasing dosages (per my doctor's instructions), but I'm still having high fasting blood sugar and it doesn't come down very much after injections.

Fasting blood sugar at 354 dropped to 104 on the first day itself. Had glycemic low of 68 in early morning -2:30 am for 2-3 days. Once I decreased the night time dosage now the levels are normal. random is 124 - 134 unless i succumb to temptation and eat mangoes and bananas in the night. else, with execise, things are looking brighter. i feel energetic throughout the day. :-))

I was on Byetta which made me feel miserable BUT did help me lose weight. I now take Humalog 75/25 and it is controlling my BS BUT I am gaining weight! I exercise daily (Wii - "Let's Dance")! I am "porking" up quite a bit in my stomach and thighs! The weight gain is the only drawback I am unhappy with.

I take this drug with metformin xr, 1000 mg twice per day. Previously I took it with plain metformin and I started gaining weight, I was always hungry. Since the change I have started losing weight. If its not working for you, talk to your doctor. I went to and endocrinologist finally got my meds in order. I have also started an exercise program and am learning cognitive restructuring
