ActoPlus Met (metformin / pioglitazone): “I have been taking ActosPlus Met 15/850 for Type 2 Diabetes for approximately 3 years. My HbA1C has been steady between 6.0 and 6.3. If I'm having side-effects, they are not noticeable. The price, however, must put a smile on the pharmaceutical company CEO's face. It would be nice to see it go generic!”

Recently company changed insurance and I no longer have perscription coverage, at a cost of $350/month I am looking for generic version now”
