  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • In 2009 this part of recommended treatment for Pre (A1C w= 6.5). The other two meds were Januvia (which I am still taking) and Cymbalta that I had taken before with no adverse effects. After the initial constipation and continual urination I was taken off all three. Two weeks later I had my first real indication of Tinnitus.
