"My doctor is predicting a weekly shot within about a year or two and he's pretty up on the research. I'm just wondering if a large once-a-week dose might not increase the incidence of nausea. So far, I've had no problems.
"Hi Linda....Oh this sounds very familiar to me. All I can share from my own experience is to make sure you eat enough protein and carb at your meal after a injection. Try to take any medications that are due at least 30 mins before your injection.…"

I think I saw it on the website, but it's not there now. I bet you could write them and ask. It was free. I was taking glucofage (generic metformin?) but my Dr. switched me completely to the pin. I noticed that some people take both.

hmmm. i was never offered a case for my pen. oh well. i am on both metformin, plus byetta. what is the pill form you were taking? i'm not on aol. i'm on yahoo IM and on skype. i like the insulated lunch box thing, except i hate carrying extra stuff. my hands go numb on me at the worst possible times and i drop things. we need to invent an insulated pouch that fits in a purse and goes in the freezer when not in use. oh well, rome wasn't built in a day. we'll figure it out.
that's my problem as well. if i know i'm not going to be home for lunch, i take it before breakfast, but suppertime is when i have the big problem. with the price of gas nowadays, i hate running home just to take a shot before i eat. i'm working on finding something small enough to fit in my purse that will keep it cold enough. i even checked with the pharmacy to see if they knew of anything. nada, zip. i think a travel toothbrush holder will hold the pen and a couple of needles but what to put them into to stay cold. if you figure out something let me know and i'll do the same for you.
