  • The generic version of this medicine did not work at all, I switched to the brand name and it works better for me. I also started taking mine at night and have found the absorption and effectiveness increased significantly.

  • Be careful when your doctor adjusts your dosages. A tiny change can make a *huge* difference. Don't let them change your levels too quickly.

  • I had to take the generic form of the medication in order to show how it did not work for me. I felt horrible on this medication, lethargic, depressed, it was a challenge. Just didn't work for me. I am one of the few who needs brand name.

  • Having to take it early, before coffee or breakfast, is inconvenient, but totally worth it when you get your energy back. Also, I found that it didn't work nearly as well for me till I started regulating my blood sugar through better diet choices. I don't feel hypo any more!

  • You have to take it within the same hour of the day every day. That's how it works best. Early morning. With a big glass of water. Wait 20 minutes before you eat anything and I wait an entire hour before I take any other meds.

  • Take calcium supplement 4 hrs before or after. Take vitamin d, k, with calcium. Too high a dose contributes to osteoporosis.
