Hi everyone; I was wondering if any of you are taking your glucose medication in pill form; if so are you taking the "extended release" or the regular pill. I'm asking because I'm currently taking Janumet 50/500. I take 1-2 pills per day; lately though I've only had to take 1 pill every other day. I ran out of my medication and asked my doctor for a few sample packs; she didn't have the dose that I normally take so she gave me a comparable pill; Janumet XR 50/1000. The nurse warned me to check my blood glucose more often because this dosage doesn't release the medicine all at once as my normal prescription does. So I would like to know if you all prefer the XR or a pill that gives you your dosage at once.
