Glyburide/metformin 5/500 tablets

I take 2 tablets in the morning at breakfast and 2 tablets at dinner time. I was advised recently to test my sugar 2 hours after each meal for beakfast, lunch and dinner. They said it should be under 140. I can not get under 141 after breakfast, it is usually around 220. Two hours after lunch it is usually below 140, even though i do not take any tablets at lunch. I have tried taking the tablets 1 hour before i eat breakfast and the results are closer to 140. The only time i show bad results is at breakfast. Can you explain whe i should take the tablets? Thank you. ## white oval pill with 600 on 1 side and Adams on the other. ## It is rude to hijack someone elses thread, next time please create your own post, in the CORRECT forum for a pill ID.

Glycomet 850mg and Glucovance 500/2.5mg

I have had diabetes type 2 since 1968 off and on till about 10 years ago. I have it regularly now and I am 79yrs old. I am taking Glucovance 500/2.5mg regularly. Please, what is your advice on Glycomet 850? ## Diabetes isn't a disease that you can have off an on, you either have it, or you don't. It may be under better control sometimes, but if you have it, you always have it. As to the medications, which one has your doctor advised you to take? What are your current sugar levels? The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and hypoglycemia.

No, it hasn't been known to cause that. What types of foods do you eat, though? Not everything we think is healthy really is healthy, some may still contain a lot of cholesterol and fat.

Earlier i was taking Covence-AT as i also have the problem of Tachycarida. However, this time when i went my regular doctor was transferred and a new one had taken his place.
