I'm trying a new medication for my insulin resistance. I initially took Metformin for a few years, but dealt with awful side effects. I asked for something different about six months ago and my doctor prescribed Januvia. I have since then gained about 25 lbs, so I assume it's *really* not working, so I called and asked for yet another medication. I was given the choice of going back to metformin, or trying Actos. Of course, I went with Actos, and I should receive the prescription in a few days. Has anyone had success with Actos?
Astrophe, that's a good suggestion. If the actos doesn't work, I'll look into it. Maripossa, those same TV commercials exist for Januvia, Metformin, Lipitor, and more. They're just ambulance chasers. Also, if I'm going off of those commercials, then Januvia is worse than Actos, so I should switch anyway.
