    Nishu - I have no idea about your country, but it is not legal to buy the drugs you list there in UK, without a prescription from a doctor.
    If you are seeing your doctor and they feel any of those medications meet your needs, I feel sure they could prescribe them to you.

    Moving on, I'm a little fascinated by your name. Are you a pharmacist, or what significance does that have to you?

    I think the rules of the forum make it unlikely that people can give advice on this matter

    "11. Important: Members are generally not Health Care Professionals, and those who are participate on the Forum as Members, not Health Care Professionals. Members are unable to diagnose any condition, or instruct in the alteration of medication, irrespective of personal or professional standing or experience."

    @Nishu - As a pharmacist, who has studied these drugs, you may be in position to make an informed choice for your own treatment, and to pay for it?

    In UK, our diabetes medications are strictly prescription only.

    On a friendly side note: Please be very clear that our forum Rules do not allow for any advertising relating to the acquisition of medications, or sources so please do not do that. Such activity will lead to posts being removed, and the potential for your membership to be terminated.
