I take this medicine about one hour before supper it has lower my blood sugar from the four hundred range to around 160 two hours after eating supper it is the best medicine i have been on and i can tell a big different on how i feel after taking this medicine however the medicine is very expensive and i doubt my insurance company well approve me being on this drug as approval by the insurance company is required (the drugs cost 215.00 for thirty pills) i have not noticed any side effect as of yet

I've been on this med for approx. 2 weeks now. I was afraid at first from all of the negative comments I read. However, this has been the best thing for me. My numbers have improved tremendously. I've had no problems and will continue to use it.

I have high sugar readings in the morning and taking Onglyza greatly improved my levels in the morning and during the day. I also take Amaryl in the morning and after dinner. I was doing great on the drug up to about one month later. I developed pain in my knees at first. Then it progressed to my upper thighs and calves. I literally could not walk. The pain was so bad that I could not sleep and there was nothing to help alleviate the pain. I thought that maybe, I had sciatica or some form of arthritis. I was also on Crestor and I thought that my leg cramps might be caused by that medication. I stopped the Crestor and the pains got worse. I got to the point that I was crying. I finally decided that I must come off of this horrible medication and without doctor's orders, I did. After about two days, my pain has improved and I can finally I can finally walk and function again. I will have to notify my doctor of my action and I will never take this medication again. It is very expensive and I would rather die than take this medication again.

I have been diabetic for years now. I was taking Janumet, a combination of metformin and januvia, and had severe stomach problems, a new doctor put me on onglyza and glumetza, and my sugar is stabalizing and I have had no side effects.

Type II Diabetic since 1996. High readings in the AM from liver producing sugar during the night. Low doseage taken at night, no side effects, noticeable lower readings in the morning like 103, 116 rather than 165, 180. Very pleased!

I have been on Onglyza for about a week; and I have noticed that my blood sugars are at an acceptable range. I'am very much pleased with this medication and its effectiveness. My medical ins. takes care of most of the cost, I only pay $9.00 for 30 pills.

My blood sugar was lowered and in the proper range, however I have noticed a rash on the inside of both arms and armpits.
