My A1c in June was 8.9, hence the reason for all the meds changed..Good luck with the insurance approval, it took a month to get mine approved, so I kept having to get samples from my Drs office in the meantime.

I have been on various versions and strengths of Metformin, more recently liquid Riomet 5ml 2x a day. Tried Victoza, but really ill with it. Trulicity has increased heart rate, but in 1 day swelling down, 5lbs lost, feel "normal" joints feel lubricated, eyes not dry & pins & needles in feet & hands much, much less! Blood sugar below 100! I have great A1C 6.2 to 5.9, but I have a lot of diabetic related issues. This is a disease that impacts every part of you. Now hoping insurance will authorize coverage. Drs office gave me 2 wk trial pack.

I've previously been on Metformin 1000mg and Glipizide 10mg, both 2x daily. Recently I went to an ENDO & he changed the Metformin to the Metformin XR 500 X 2 tabs for 2x day, kept the Glipizide the same & added 10mg daily of Actos & the 1.5mg of Trulicity injection once per week.

Now my sugars instead of 250-500range are under 150.

I'm not sure what drug you mean @sugarsmom2. As I understand it Trulicity forces your pancreas to make more insulin.

I've been on Trulicity for a couple of months, love it. It's finally got my sugars in a healthy range with no side effects.

if you are having problems with the Medication you should get ahold of your Dr.
