I have been on precose for 2 years and had few side effects when I ate a proper diet. The more starches I consume the more bloating and gas I get. I cut my intake of white breads, potatoes, pasta and rice. I changed what I eat and now only have gas when I get careless with what I eat.

After three weeks on Precose @ twice a day, have bloating, gas, nausea and dizziness everyday. Has lowered my numbers, but side affects are not nice. Wish I could tolerate it better.

I have been using this medication for 4 weeks and only take it when I am eating a high carb meal and it keeps my blood sugar below 140's. In my opinion this is a miracle drug, it works for me.

This medication seems to have been a medical mirical for me. I was close to becoming insulin dependant but thanks to this medicin among the metformin glipizide actose and jenuvia my blood sugars never get over 200! I am no longer afraid to eat. Thanks to who ever created this medication.
