I have been on several diabetes medications over the past 10 years. Metformin gave me gastric issues, to put it nicely. Avandia made me feel emotionally unstable. They put me back on Metformin. I was prescribed the Novalog Insulin Pen and put on Actos. Actos made me retain fluid but didn't help control my sugar. My morning fasting sugar was 200-220. I gained weight while on it. I started on Invokana 14 days ago. My sugar has came down quite a bit. My morning fasting sugars are between 150-180 and I am feeling better. I have lost about 15 lbs. in 14 days! I am sure a lot of it was water weight because Actos caused me to retain so much fluid.
