Reviews for Metformin/saxagliptin

Kombiglyze XR (metformin / saxagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I've been on kombiglyze xr for 3 years and have never felt better. All other drugs caused stomach pain & diarrhea. First two years my doctor added glimiperide then Lantus 40 units. After changing my diet I'm off glimiperide & only using 12 to 14 units of lantus, working on getting off completely. Oh & I've lost 30 pounds. No more night sweats or high & low blood sugars. Did I mention my blood sugars have dropped from 7 to 6 on my A1C! Two in a row! Hope by next year I will be on 2.5/500 kombiglyze xr once daily. After 8 years finally something that has worked for me!"

Kombiglyze XR (metformin / saxagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "My doc just wanted my A1C to go down from 6.0. After years of glucophage, he changed me to this great pill. It has been 2 weeks + and I have not felt so strong and healthy. Besides little stomach discomfort an hour after I take it, my morning blood sugar reading has gone from 130 to 105 and below. In another 2 weeks, I will know my new A1C reading. I think I am going to love this medicine."

Kombiglyze XR (metformin / saxagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Doc put me on 2.5 mg, with little results but side effects. Raised it to 5mg and I feel worse. I am using sample packs and insurance will not cover. I have noticed improvement in my sugar levels but I have felt worse now having started the pills. Nausea, soft stool, headache, dizzy. All of these and sugar reads only 152. Also, I don't feel rested when I'm sleeping."
