Hi I have been told I am not diabetic but am pre-diabetic. My levels are fine but I am always tired and my muscles tend to tingle.
Per my doctor he ran a test that determined I am insulin resistant and he put me on actoplus met (pioglatizone HCI and Metformin HCI) 15/1000 first I had to take 1 pill a day 1/2 pill with breakfast and 1/2 with dinner but my problem was that it got me even more tired and I ended up falling asleep at work.
Now I have been switched to the xr version and have to take 1 pill a day still gets me tired and sleepy but now I take it before I go to sleep. Bad thing is that I usually only sleep about 4 - 5 hours a day due to my work schedule, 3am - noon.
I stopped taking the pills when I had acute pancreatitis and one of the ER doctors told me it could have been caused by the Metformin if I really didn't need to take it.
Now I am still tired and confused even more.
