"That is awesome! It would be useful for your doctor to figure out whether the Onglyza or metformin caused you problems. Metformin is such an effective and safe medication, it would be a shame to permanently exclude it's use if it isn't a…"

"Hi guys. I was on Bydureon for 2 months with no effects. My H1C actually went up. My doctor took me off and put me on Lantus, which is working great. I don't mind the shots at all, compared to the Bydureon injections. Anita"
