Reviews for Kombiglyze XR to treat 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!"

"Sugar - 117, and some times it will spike to 254 for a half day, can't sleep, no energy, joint pain, intense ankle pain. Have to wear custom made leather braces. Limits my walking to 5-10 minutes, tired of the foot pain, joint pain climbing up stairs in out car."

"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."

"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."
