Reviews for Linagliptin/metformin

Jentadueto (linagliptin / metformin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “A friends sister takes this with great success. Asked my doctor to put me on it and my fasting blood sugar rates soared every morning. Went from around the 140's to 240's. Took it about one month without any adverse side effects but asked my doctor to put me back on my original meds. and my numbers are coming back down. Also, a rather expensive drug compared to others on the market.”

Jentadueto (linagliptin / metformin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “I used to take Metformin which gave me stomach problems and really didn't help my A1C. I started on this drug a year ago and have had NO adverse effects despite the fact that it contains metformin; it also brought my A1C down to a normal level. My only gripe is the high price! My insurer lists this as a Tier 3 ($$$ drug). I thought the patent would expire 2019 and make way for a more affordable generic version, but it seems the patent may have been extended a few more years. For that reason alone, I will need to return to metformin.”

Jentadueto (linagliptin / metformin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “Started taking Jentaduento as a step up from Metformin...It did bring my blood sugars down but l found the side effects unbearable. I had severe motion sickness with a constant very queasy stomach and severe case of the runs especially at night. I was also having nightmares keeping me from sleeping. Also constant dizziness so will be seeking an alternative..”

Jentadueto (linagliptin / metformin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “Being that it's still Metformin, it's way overpriced and I still have the side effects (although I don't have to visit the lady's room quite as much), so might as well go back to Metformin and save the money.”
