    Hi guys, long time no see!! I've been busy with my new grandson.....born in August 2012!!! :D
    I have just been prescribed Saxagliptin, which I have been told is the new 'wonderdrug for us T2s!! I also take Diltiazem, and saw that there can be some contraindications between the two! On surfing further I've read that I may suffer more hypos than usual! Anyone else on these 2 meds? If so, anybody had any problems as yet?? Would love to hear your stories please!! :p

    Hi. The xxxxGliptins family can normally be taken with most other drugs. I gather Diltiazem is for blood pressure? There are many other blood pressure drugs which may or may not be suitable for you e.g. I'm on Ramipril. Perhaps your doctor can change to another drug if he agrees there is conflict.
