New Drug Treatments

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

My partner was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and was placed on metformin. He struggled to tolerate it as first but seems to be better managed with it now. We keep hearing of other people using newer drugs for their diabetes and obviously see all the adverts on TV. Does anyone have any feedback on these drugs and whether they feel better controlled on them than on metformin?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am not fond of the side effects from either. I had taken the inovokana but ended up with yeast infections every month.. esp right before my period. Sorry guys that is on my team if it's TMI.

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.

A DiabetesTeam Member
