There are many different types of medications your Dr.can give you. If your numbers are still high with just the Metformin they have the option to increase the dosage or put you on Insulin. There are different types but your Dr. will guide you thru what is right for you. But Definately go inn & see your Dr. so they can help you out.
Take care , Kathy
Along with my Metformin I take an injection once a week called Bydureon. I am also about to start another medication called INVOKANA. It's taken orally & it's brand new. It works by reducing the amount of Glucose that gets reabsorbed by the kidneys. It also has the spectacular side effect of weight loss so we'll see. ; )
