Well, at 5mcg of Byetta I was taking 2000mg metformin, 8mg Avandia and 20mg of Glucotrol a day, split into 2 doses to correspond with the injections. My post prandials were sub 100 and my morning fasting was sub 120.
This week I just went to 10mcg of Byetta (no nausea, no side effects - YAY) and my doc as an experiment ELIMINATED all my other meds!!!!! Well so far my post prandials have been 120-140 and my fasting around 120. Not as good as previously but WOW. I just eliminated a pile of meds and on the strength of Byetta alone, my BS is holding.
As a footnote, please realize I watch my carb intake pretty closely, so this is certainly not an unrestricted diet with Byetta as a supplement.
PS - We need a gila monster icon!
PPS - Its been a few weeks now and my doc added back in some metformin and avandia. Not as much as previously but he's sooooo aggressive about numbers. Its pulled my numbers back to sub 100's so I guess thats a good thing!
