What Are 9 Things To Know If You Are Taking Metformin?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Metformin is the most widely prescribed diabetes drug in the world and has been used effectively for somewhat over 80 years now

My Husband Was Prescribed Synjardy Xr In Combination With Ozempac To Control His Blood Sugar. Does He Need To Take Both Of These?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband has type two diabetes and high blood pressure and high cholesterol. He was given 4 different medications including the Ozempic and synjardy xr (also, rosuvastatin and valartan) would it be better, in the interest of not taking four new medication starting all at once to choose one of the diabetic treatments and see how it goes before incorporating the other? Curious what anyone else’s experience has been.

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?
