Brought my glucose levels down to normal range with a proper diet. I use the Carb. counting method. I take the medication in the morning with my breakfast. I have even lost some weight. No side effects experienced. I do eat three times a day with snacks in between and a bedtime snack also.

it starts off a little slow at first(it takes a week or 2 to kick in),but once it gets in your system it works great

Easy to take. In my case it has been very effective when combined with "Glucofage"(sp?) It has brought my numbers down below 100 consistantly. I have not experianced any stomach problems - I always make sure to take with food.

This medication with the help of Metformin and Insulin has brought back my eye sight. This is truley a miracle.I can now see wings on a bird, leaves on a tree, bricks on a wall.

glipizide XL 10 does not work for me. It must not be breaking down in my system. the 5XL works better than the ten XL. I take the tens 3x a day and the 5XL 3 x a day Plus I take the regular 5's if I need to bring my insulin level down more. I'm trying to see another doctor to see if I require another medication as I don't think the 10's are breaking down in my system.
