I have taken the drug for 7 years I have been on the lowest dose.Before on once a day meds. I had lows at odd times of the day. With Prandin I could have more self controll. Now since I am on diuretics, and unable to exercise, I find my blood sugar going higher than normal. I am going to see my doctor to raise the dosage. I don't want to lose the ability of self control.
