Hi everyone

Just wondering if anyone has feedback about janumet XR. My last fasting was 7.2 A1C 6.6. My former physician had me on 2000 mg of metformin and not concerned.
The new physician concerned and put me on janumet XR. I have read about it and concerned .
Any feedback would be helpful

Honestly not really I have never had issues with metformin just the fact I am on something new. Thanks for asking and all your knowledge you are sharing 😀

New Drug Treatments

New Drug Treatments

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?

Actoplus Met

Actoplus Met

I take metformin 500mg, 4 a day and one Actos 45 mg once a day. Would this be a better way for me to take these medications? Taking an all in one tablet would be easier.

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

Metformin comes in an extended release tablet. I take 1000 mg once a day with the XR and it provides a good level layer of coverage to meet up with my other med that includes metformin XR

Had Anyone Had Success With Adding Januvia To Existing Metformin?

Had Anyone Had Success With Adding Januvia To Existing Metformin?

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?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

@A DiabetesTeam Member, it depends on what insurance you have. I’m with Ambetter, and my twice daily dose of Janumet, which is Januvia/Metformin combo, costs me $30 a month - my generics are $0.

Has Anyone Experienced Diarreha And Intense Gas Pain While Taking This?

Has Anyone Experienced Diarreha And Intense Gas Pain While Taking This?

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. Three nights ago I woke with severe gas pain and then was hit with diarrhea and nausea which lasted about an hour.. the next night, same thing. Is this normal? I expected to have problems right away but not three weeks in. Thanks in advance all!

Is Janumet a form of metformin or is from that group of medicines? If so, then you are suffering from flare-ups of IBS. I had to cut my metformin back as it was a trigger all the time for flash… read more

For Different Carb Foods "We Are All Different" Is Not True - So How Can We Stop This Misinformation From Proliferating.

For Different Carb Foods "We Are All Different" Is Not True - So How Can We Stop This Misinformation From Proliferating.

We are T2s that means we have a carb limit we can process at any one time and more carbs of any type will send us high as a kite...

But weirdly, most posting T2s think they can test a food to see if it affects more than another carb food, their reasoning is they say because everyone is different

They say they test and have proven food xx does not affect them as much as food yy BUT they have not proven it at all because they do not know the base load of carbs they were already processing… read more

Wrong. We are all different. Our bodies process the sugar and carbs differently. My pancreas might produce insulin better or worse than yours. I'd suggest that every diabetic be careful but our bodies… read more

Sleep Disturbance

Sleep Disturbance

Hello everyone! I have type 2 and have this problem in the night. I wake up at around 2:30 every night. My hands and feet are tingling, ears are ringing and I have a headache. It feels like my breathing has gone very very slow. I’ve been for a sleep apnea test and the Dr says I don’t have it. If I take glucophage it makes it worse so I control my sugar with diet. I’ve struggled to find a Dr that can diagnose this and help with a remedy for it. Does anyone else experience this or know what it… read more
