Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
Headaches start in the AM when meds are taken and continues(off and on) for the remainder of the day/night until I go to sleep.
From this study (2 years ago):
I tried Januvia for three months during which my blood sugar was out of control.
As soon as I used Amary (1mg/day) along with Januvia, My blood sugar is perfect, fasting or after meal is between 6 to 7mmol (108-126).
I was very happy, except for the continuous headache for three days since I started taking the Amaryl.
