I started taking @janumet xr approx 3 weeks ago. At first I had no problems at all. I take it every night at supper as instructed.

Metformin - did nothing for A1C

Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it
My husband was diagnosed several years ago. Had only been on Metformin which kept his numbers under control. Recently his A1C went up to 8.1 Dr has recommended adding 100mg of Januvia once a day. We have a 21 day sample supply. Has anyone had success with adding this drug?
