I was diagnosed with Diabetes On October 1 and thought I wasn't going to have to go on medication but was wrong. When my sugar continued to rise I was immediately placed on medication. They at first wanted to put me on another medication but I was told by my mother who is diabetic not to take it and was placed on Glipizide. Upon reading the side affects I was concerned about taking this medication, but when it has already started to reduce my blood glucose level I am a happy camper. One 5mg tablet in the morning with breakfast is my dose for the day. I was told this medication can be hard on your stomach, but I have had no problems yet. Maybe because I followed the pharmacists instructions of taking with food. I am shocked that a medication can work so quickly. My level was over 200 and is now down to 134. I am hoping to continue to go lower in the next week. I would be really happy with 100 at this point. This is a power packed little pill! Wow! Thank you for technology!
