    Be extremely careful with this medication. My husband has had an internal bleed and they discovered he has liver problems.

My husband was on life support for 5 days and is now on insulin injections.

    Don't listen to the crazy reviews... if you stay away from sugar (NO SWEET TEA OR SODA, OR ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS) and watch your diet the side effects are minimal. I drank a lot of water to stay hydrated and keep my pee clear. No infections. I was on the pill for 2 months and my a1c went from 6.6 to 6.1 (back into pre diabetes territory) within 3 months.
