I took on 4mg pill and the nexted morning my blood sugar was down to 29 I almost didn't make. After a day and half in the hospital still could not control by low blood sugar had to give me prednisone to get my pancreas working again. I spent a total of 41/2 days in the hospital and now have to take insulin.

This drug has done wonders for me. I have not felt well for four months now but this med seems to make me feel better than I have in a long time. My count has went from 225 to 120 since on this pill. Yeah!
