    Glimepiride in combination with Siofor had previously been prescribed 1000 mg (one in the morning and one in the evening). – Unfortunately, the Glimepiride caused me but a steady and (in total) from me no longer tolerated weight gain, which is why my doctor then on my strong request after 6 months also (finally) discontinued. – With the Siofor alone, I was pretty good, no side effects, but the values were unfortunately not quite in the normal range, which is why I finally got Janumet, which I have been taking for 3 months now. – Weight loss in this time about 10 kilograms, but I personally write this less the Janumet, as the deposition of glimepiride. – For about 4 weeks, my weight stabilized at 91 kilos (179 cm height) and falls no further, which confirms me in my assumption only. – Side effects of Janumet are clearly mild diarrhea, but not all the time. Occasional (and again slight) dizziness also occurs, as well as a certain slight indifference but nothing dramatic. I’m not getting so excited anymore. I do not want to call it listless, because that does not quite apply. — Disappointing for me is mainly the effectiveness of the (but quite expensive) drug. – My monthly average fell by just 0.6 points on average compared to the one where I had taken only Siofor alone. For me, effort + side effects are actually in an unacceptable ratio to the benefit.
