Have only taken 2x at night, 10ml. No more glyburide but down to two 500 metformin morning and dinner. So far NOTHING!! Both mornings readings of 215(was that way on all the oral meds!), and in afternoon after exercise -- I walk for a living (dog walker) blood sugar at 300! Is it normal for this to be so slow? I am watching what I eat!
