- Does tradjenta with glimepiride lower a1c or fasting sugar or both
I was on glimepiride (two tablets before breakfast, one before lunch and one before dinner). My fasting sugar suddenly became 200 and A1c was 9.6. So I consulted endocrinologist. And she recommended to add Tradjenta (5 mg) once a day. I started Tradjenta on 02/12/2014. But my bood sugar has remian the same.
Do you think that I should continue the combination ?

Recently my doctor prescribed Glimepiride to help control my diabetes. After being on the medicine for only about 14 days I had gained 6 pounds and am already overweight by about 20 pounds. The weight is not good for my diabetes and I gained it all in my stomach so now have a bigger spare tire around my waist.

- Joint swelling in my hands
I have only been taking Invokana for almost 3 weeks, I have noticed joint swelling in my hands which did not occur 3 weeks ago when I was taking Glimepiride. While taking the Glimepiride I noticed that my ankles and feet hurt after sitting for a while or when I woke up. Has anyone else noticed these symptoms?
- Cymbalta and pulmonary embolisms (2 responses)
I started taking Cymbalta in August for pain. By September I was suffering from shortness of breath. Visited Doctors asking if Cymbalta could be the cause. Answer was no. By the end of September I was no longer taking Cymbalta but still suffering from shortness of breath. It was getting severe although only when I was up and moving. On Oct 10th I was admitted to the hospital. I had a myriad of tests on my heart such as stress test, echocardiogram,sonograms on my neck and legs. All were clear. Blood test indicated clots(I guess) and a cat scan was done. Both of my lungs were covered in clots. Cat scan done of my stomach,intestines etc. Doctors could find no where of origin for the clots. I am convinced it was the Cymbalta. I was taken off Celebrex when I left the hospital. I have since been taken off glimepiride,fish oil. I currently only take Lisinopril and Hydrocholorthiazide, metformin,crestor AND COUMADIN. I am providing this information as I feel it is important to others like me.
