You should know if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
If you have type 1, you must take insulin.
If you have type 2, you may take a pill instead of or along with insulin.
Below is a list of the common drugs used to control diabetes, how they
work and the common side effects.
It is important to know the name of the diabetes drug you are taking
and any of the likely side effects.
You should report side effects to your doctor, nurse or diabetes educator. Look at your insulin or pill bottle to see what drug you are taking.
Know your diabetes medications!
