Anyone Taking Metformin, Januvia And Lantus For Controlling Blood Glucose?

Anyone Taking Metformin, Januvia And Lantus For Controlling Blood Glucose?

My doctor took me off most of my pills and left me taking @Metformin, @Januvia, and @Lantus (Solostar) @Pen. Anyone taking similar medications at one time? what are your doses and is it working? I noticed that my BG is lower in the mornings and higher before dinner where I take my last dose of Lantus and it's still high when I go to bed.

I have taken JANUMET 50/1000 MG. and 50 units of Lantus, 2X a day before breakfast and supper. I always eat dinner between 5 and 6 pm. And I will have a snack before 9 pm (a slice of whole grain bread with peanut butter on it) My glucose is always excellent.

I take Januvia, Lantus and occasionally Novolog. You might talk to your doctor about changing the timing of your meds. Most doctors initially prescribe Lantus as a once a day insulin. I have had much better results splitting my Lantus dose. I take 8 units upon waking and 18 units before bed. My FBS is nearly always under 100. My bedtime reading is seldom greater that 115.

I'm on the same, don't keep a regular schedule I'm afraid, eat with my pills. Take my Lantus around 11 pm. If your sugars are lower in the morning, I'm thinking maybe it depends on what time you retire to bed, rise in the a.m.? Higher sugar before supper is not good. What are you having for lunch? Afternoon snack? Are you exercising? Well-hydrated? I'm trying to stay off the heavy breads, flatbread, wraps, pitas, etc. No pizza. It all helps.
