"I have taken it for over 10 years and I have had excellent results and I am still taking the amount that I was started on and my readings average 95. If you can beat that with another medicine please let me know what it is."

"I've been taking glipizide for two weeks. It is effective in lowering blood sugar and helps with post prandial spikes. It works fast, sometimes too fast and has forced me to modify the timing and quantity of my meals."

"I was on Glucotrol 5 mgs but my levels were still too high. We raised to 10 mgs. My levels got under control for a while then my night time sugar levels fell way too much, many more nights of 50 or lower so we dropped back to 5 mgs. Works like a dream when I remember foods I could have at 10 mgs are not allowable at 5 mgs. I like this med much much better than metformin. No side effects with my Glipizide ER."

"I've used it for a couple years. It has brought down my A1C. It really highlighted my bad eating habits though. I tend to go long periods without eating. Doing that with Glucotrol leads to hypoglycemia. I end up with hypoglycemia pretty often. But that is from my own bad habits. Especially while I am in school. I am getting to the point of having to write 4 paper a semester and that is just going to get worse as papers are required to have more content. I intend to talk to my doctor about the new Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists and Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. Especially the GLP-1 receptor agonists. They supposedly slow down the emptying of the stomach. I see food I just ate a couple hours earlier in my stool. That is way too fast."
