    I recently was prescribed this medication. It is a combination pill that combines 2 of the meds I take into one!

    I haven't had any side effects from Metformin and I take a 1000 mg tablet twice a day and have for years.
    My doctor put me on Jardiance about a year ago and the only side effect is I lost my appetite. Lost lots of weight that I didn't really need to lose.
    So I take Jardiance + Metformin.
    Edit: I can go 24 hours and not get hungry. I force myself to eat something, plus lots of supplements to hopefully compensate for the loss of appetite.

    I take 500mg once a day, my a1c was 6.7 I think the lack exercise and bad diet is the problem.

    My A1C is the same as yours. Walk about 3 or 4 times a week is excellent exercise and is the best exercise for diabetics.
    I went to a diabetes clinic, that my insurance paid for, and was pleasantly surprised I can drink two large glasses of Chardonnay White Wine every day. No red wine, only white wine.
