What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C
Jauamet - gave me low blood sugar too low
Victoza - I loved it but ended in emergency for the pain I was experiencing.
Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it

Hi Patricia Your posting is about the same with my journey, being a diabetic. I was on several different meds, on Metformin and I think all it did was to increase the damage to my kidney's. I am Stage 3, my kidney function testing is lower than 35%.........scary when kidneys not functioning well. finally on 24 units of insulin each evening, depending on BS. Also on Actos. having low readings makes me feel tired, my body isn't use to low BS. trying to get my A1C back to normal, not very far off mark. Have a great day it is 1:45am and I am going to bed. nite all and pray everyone has a great day

I've been on Metformin and Glimeperide and various -statins and blood pressure tabs since first diagnosed 10 years ago. I've also been prescribed Januvia, Janumet, Tradjenta,Victoza and Glipizide plus some Welbutrin (buproprion) for depression.
I took one Glipizide tablet and it depressed me so much, my wife insisted that I do not take it ever again.
The Victoza was another bad ride - firstly because no-one told me to start at 0.6 and increase up to 2.6 or whatever- so I started at 2.6 for three days and threw up like a dog! My PCP suggested I try it again at the correct dosage but it still made nauseous and bloated.
Over the last few years, I've been put on insulin (Lantus, Toujeo and lately Tresiba) but numbers seem to bounce around with no obvious pattern. I've been told there aren't many options left for me to try. After 10 years I wonder how much worse (or better) would I be without the meds? Probably will never know...........
I'm constantly being told to lose weight and that it will help my condition, but it's hard to exercise when you feel like "you know what".

Als je Victoza gebruikt en je eet te veel ja dan word je ziek daardoor ga je vanzelf minder eten

Sounds like how I was - was on several different diabetic pills, none really worked (dr said they were doing as much damage as they were helping). Metformin, I had all the side effects from, actos and a few other pills. Well long story short, now I have stage 4 kidney disease - so most of the diabetic pills I can no longer take - too hard on my kidneys. Pretty much leaves me on insulin!! Which is ok, got a1c down to 6.4
