Hi Talldude,
 
What meds are you on?  I'm not sure how long it usually takes for the meds to start working, but I'd say if you are concerned then you should contact your doctor - you may need to try other meds, a combo with something else or just a little more time.
 
Hope your numbers come down soon.

Dude,
Please don't type all in caps. It is considered shouting and difficult for some members to read.

Have you had your nutrition class? What calorie food plan are you on? How many carbs per day and how many at each meal? What is your exercise plan and how much do you do each day? Has your doctor discussed insulin with you? Do you need to lose weight?

As you can see from my questions there are a lot of factors that go into your blood glucose numbers. It is not just the medications. Meds can help your body's insulin move glucose into the cells but if you are not doing any exercise to use up the glucose then the muscles won't ask for more. If you are consuming too many carbs for your needs then the meds can't move them all into your cells. If you are over weight then your body's insulin resistance may be higher so losing weight will help your body move the sugar to where it can be used. Answering these questions will help us help you.
