In men it causes extreme ED, Not sure if this happens with women? Have tired not taking it for a full day and my sexual drive came back. But when I started taking it again my sex drive went away just as fast. No ED medications will work with it either.

I have been taking for approx 3+ years. I am not always compliant with my diet...but have found this med keeps me within range. Actually 80-90 2-3 hours after a meal. I consider it very helpful. Before I was taking Metformin.

Have switch from this to Janumet.See my other entry below. Swelling is gone, very fast, I am able to reduce my weight and feel great. I see that the FDA is "looking" into this drug, about time.

I have taken this drug for over 5 years, but recently I am developing a mild form of anemia which I read an article it may be from this drug. I am taking B12 and iron supplements to see if I can still take this medicine.
