Six months ago my A1C was 7.2; at that time my Dr. doubled my Metformin so I now take 1000 milligrams twice a day. He also added [[treatment:Januvia:5612ce4f6bcd619a[[phone:12000360]] 100:]] mgs daily. I decided to work harder on diet and exercise and not take the Januvia. My next A1C was 6.7.

What "damage" occurred with the Glipizide? I've been on that. Thanks!
Dr just prescribed Junuvia, I was on Jardiance for about 5 mo but had reaction to it and we decided to try something else, i.e.: Junivia
and was wondering if anyone has been on it and for how long and if they had reaction to it
I haven't started it yet as need AC1, etc done first, so will prob do that tomorrow and then start taking
ok, thank you, I've only been on for few days, so we shall see, why do they produce these meds when they have so many side effects,, the bottom line I guess!!!

I agree. Take your meds as prescribed by your Doctor.
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?
how many years is januvia likely to stay effective glucose lowering medication as a ball park estimate
You can maybe ask your pharmacist. But diabetes is a progressive disease so I would think the answer would not be accurate. What works for 1 diabetic does not always work for others neither. Each… read more
