Has anyone taken or is taking a combination of Metformin, Gliclizide and Llnagliptin please and if so have you had any side effects? :)

I am on slow release Metformin 1000mg. My blood sugar has come down to about 9.0 in the morning to 7.0 in the evening. The nurse wanted to improve them further so asked me to take Linagliptin once a day along side the metformin. I took one in the morning with the metformin but my stomach has been really bad since so I had to stop taking them. I do have IBS so that could be a factor. I would try taking them at different times of the day and see what happens, just experiment. MY last fasting reading was 6.1 with just the metformin.
