  • Start dose low and escalate slowly. Expect mild nausea at start and with dose increases. It will go away, so stick with it. I feel fine now. I am convinced that this medicine also helped me lose weight too, thus improving my glucose #s.

  • I take it morning and night with meals, it's like taking my vitamins. Not hard at all. I test my blood sugar 6 times a day or more. Before/after every meal. Only side effect I have had is gas.

  • If prescribed by your doctor to take a larger dose, take it after your evening meal. Rather than in the morning. I find that this is less likely to cause stomach issues.

  • 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.

  • Don't skip a dose or let 24 hours go by or you get the forced colon cleanse once again. Only have diarrhea on first dose and any 24 hour missed doses.
