    Has anybody been subscribed Xigduo XR on the NHS?
    Was it easy to obtain from your GP
    I have been on metformin slow release and gliclazide x4 per day and they are having no effect
    My readings are about 13 usually

    Hi and welcome,

    Maybe your Metformin and Gliclazide are having little effect is because you are eating the wrong things? Diet is the key over and above medication. Perhaps you could list some of the foods you typically eat in a day and we may spot something.
