  • With its 900mg twice a day dosage in my case you'd be definitely prone to side effects. Have found diet control plus exercise to be a much better option. I now take one dosage every three days just as a precautionary measure.

  • Taken for PCOS. All it did was give me horrible non-stop diarrhea. Awful med.

  • Not actually taken for type 2 diabetes, but for glucose intolerance from PCOS. This is a b**** and a half to get used to, and it only works if you actually are gluten intolerant. For me, it is very effective because I actually am, but a friend who was prescribed this who was mis-diagnosed as gluten intolerant had terrible side effects. It's pretty bad when you are ramping up to full dosage, leveling out after a few months, so if it's still bad after that see your doctor.
