Reviews for Jentadueto

NotforMe · Taken for less than 1 month · May 18, 2019

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.”

For Diabetes, Type 2: “Insurance would no longer cover Oseni which was working great. Suggested this one. Stomach is a mess. Was up all night wanting to throw up and with severe chills. Did keep my blood sugar between 90-120 but I just want to die.”

For Diabetes, Type 2: “I found this drug very easy to take and has been extremely effective in reducing my A1C levels to normal. We started with the larger dose and have now reduced it to the smaller one to see if there is any impact.”

Satisfied Patient · Taken for 2 to 5 years · August 20, 2015

For Diabetes, Type 2: “I have had great success in lowering my blood glucose levels using Jentadueto and Invokana together. I have experienced no serious side effects and would recommend that all Type II diabetics speak to their doctors about these wonderful medications.”

For Diabetes, Type 2: “Though not great in controlling my sugar levels, but, there is definitely an improvement in the level with this drug. The best part is that I feel great after having started this, no side effects and seems I have more muscle now :) A1C seems to be dropping too. Will know in the next one month when I get tested.”

Angus · Taken for 1 to 2 years · April 22, 2021

For Diabetes, Type 2: “Since starting this medication I have had nothing but troubles with my stomach and digestive tract. The dose was lowered and it subsided some but not enough for me to continue taking it. I was on Janumet previously, for a short while because of insurance coverage change, and had same issues. Absolutely read warnings for side effects and know them well.”

ESA · Taken for 6 months to 1 year · April 1, 2019

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.”

MR.k · Taken for less than 1 month · September 21, 2018

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..”

For Diabetes, Type 2: “Transferred from Metformin to Jentadueto but did not take it with a meal consistently…had stomach issues, weakness, confusion and dementia type symptoms with anxiety and depression! B12 levels appear on the lower side of the range.”

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.”
