keep all the new diabetes meds straight
Technicians are trying to keep all the new diabetes meds straight...and asking why different patients get different diabetes drugs.
Metformin (Glucophage, etc) should be the FIRST drug used in type 2 diabetes. It works well...it's inexpensive...and it usually doesn't cause low blood sugar or weight gain.
But many patients will need to add another med to metformin.
