Pros: seems to be lowering blood glucose. Morning readings have dropped.

Cons: a lot of nausea when I first started meds. Almost quit taking but stuck in there. still get nausea once in a while and have unusual stomach cramping at times.

Overall: Hate taking such a large pill but next month will see if A1c comes back good. First time taking this med and the nausea is horrible.
