"Hey Brian, I had a similar reaction when the suggestion was made. My hesitation went away once hearing about Invokana and her experience with that on other patients. I definitely have hesitation with FDA and big pharma vetting drugs fully.…"

"Hi Terry, It definitely does give me pause. It didn't happen overnight that I ended up on a three drug cocktail plan. It started out with metformin initially, then the addition of glipizide, and now we're trying Farxiga for 3 months. We do…"

Farxiga?

Hey Everyone, My doctor add a new med last week (as I transitioned insurance companies) by adding Farxiga (in combination with the existing regimen of Metformin & Glipizde) as she wanted to see if my A1C of 7.2 would drop due to this relatively new drug that I had not previously been on. What I've noticed already in just a few short days is that what I used to think was comfortable temperature wise (76°F-78°F) is now too warm and what I used to think was chilly (72°F-74°F) is now just…See More
