I am currently on Victoza, Metformin (2000 mg a day), glucaphoge & glipazide. My A1C was 7.9 as of 2 days ago. My doctor wants me to try to get my numbers down by the time I go back to see him, if not he is going to take me off the glipazide and try me on the Invokana, he said it is expensive and no generic brands. I have insurance through Escripts that pays 500.00 and something and I pay 140.00 for a 3 month supply, which is what I pay for my victoza pen, for a 3 months supply also. I didn't think to ask my doctor if glipazide would be the ONLY medicine that he would take me off of. I don't want to pay ANOTHER 140.00 every 3 months along with the other meds! From the reviews it looks like you still need to take the metformin and the glucaphoge, wonder if I would still need the victoza pen?
Do I still take ALL my other meds with Invokana?

I want to make a correction in my question: I am NOT TAKING glucophage with my other diabetic medicines listed. Sorry for the confusion.
Well, my diabetes was pretty uncontrolled, so I'm currently taking metformin, invokana and the victoza (I just started this one). But the invokana, you're right my insurance just laughed at me and won't pay much, but the dr gave me a card where it's completely free for the first year. So I've been on it for about 3 months now :)
