For Diabetes, Type 2 “I was on Lantus Solostar and Metformin twice daily max dosage. Sugar counts were still 300 and 200. I was so frustrated because the insulin and supplies are extremely expensive with my HSA plan. Basically, my problem did not improve and I was broke. I ran out of insulin and did not have the money to refill. My dr’s apt was three weeks later. I explained my low funds situation and promised to fill the Rx as soon as I received my next pay check. She said “Let’s try a cheaper option for you”. I said “Woo hoo! Let’s!”. She prescribed Glimeperide. I took a half pill for days 1 and 2. No change. I took the entire pill days 3 & 4…better…but not much. I take two pills daily now, and I see IMPROVEMENT! WOO HOO!”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “My doctor put me on Amaryl & it quickly lowered my readings.My problem is that I have a SULFA allergy & now I’m broken out in a HORRIBLE RASH & the doc doesn’t think it might be the Amaryl.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “After 3 months of 2mg four times a day, with no change in glucose levels my doctor and I sat down for a talk. When asked if there was a ceiling for the dosages he said we have plenty of room to adjust (there actually is no recorded max dose I could find in the literature). The typical patient uses about 4 mg four times a day. I have found that I have had to increase as much as 16mg four times a day to see adequate glucose changes. It’s ease of use and small size makes it easier to take than some, but I have yet to find it’s stable dosage for ME.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “I have been taking it for 2 years now . It will drop your blood sugar levels quickly so you need to eat within 10 minutes of taking it . If I exercise alot that will further drop my blood sugar levels . Be careful at first . I take a soda in the car with me just in case or carry glucose tablets until you see how it affects you . You may need to eat more than you are use to .I have not had any side effects”
