    Snap!
    One of the few DB drugs taken that I had no side effects from and has helped level out my lows and highs

    Thanks for the link. I've been on Januvia for a few months now and it has noticeably smoothed out my BS spikes which Met & Glic weren't doing very well. I've had no side effects after the first few days of headaches. I'm waiting to see what my next Hba1c is.

    Hardly surprising when all I had heard previously was that noone knew the longterm effects but it was suspected of causing thyroid cancer! :!: :!: :!:

    Dr has put me on Januvia today to try for 8 weeks. Hba1c is 7.6 down from 7.9 but still not as good as before. If it does not come down much more or I dont feel better it will then be time for insulin at last.

    Were you experiencing unexpected spikes in your levels Friar tuck? Januvia is paricularly good in that situation.
