Not sure if truly effective...

Pros: It hasn't made a difference to me.

Cons: Not sure how it really works in combination to my Actos and Metformin XR AND insulin treatment...

Overall: Have been on Januvia 3 different times in the last 5 years - I feel it does not help in my meds cocktail. My older cousin was on it for 2 year sand felt the same way.

Works for me

Pros: No side effects

Cons: none

Overall: I have been taking metformin for 10 yr. and have not had any problems. I was taking glyburide with it but my BS was getting too low so Dr. took me off. I now have good numbers and feel better.
