Drugs taking:
- Alendronate Sodium - EQ 70MG BASE (alendronate sodium): used for 10+ years
- Omeprazole - 10MG (omeprazole): used for 2 - 5 years
- Niacin - 500MG (niacin): used for 6 - 12 months

Comments from or about the patient: Stopped taking Omeprazole and Actos became more effective (blood glucose average about 102) but stomach acidity probably caused by Alendronate Sodium (generic of Fosamax) is back with a vengeance. Need a proton inhibitor that doesn't blunt Actos.
