My blood levels have been high lately and my doctor added januvia to the metorformin and glyburide that I have been taking, but didn't seem to do the trick. So then he added actos. I have been on actos before and experienced severe weight gain. I am a little uncomfortabe taking 4 medications for my diabeties. He keeps adding medications. I feel he should take away the januvia since it didn't work or try different combinations.

They all work differently in reducing blood glucose, so your doctor is probably trying all avenues.
And yes, if the Januvia didn't work at all then he should have taken it out. You should discuss t his with him. He may have a perfectly good explanation for adding Actos to your list of medicines without taking Januvia out.
