How bad are the side effects? How effective is it at controlling your blood sugars?

TIA!

Is that the same as glyburide? My doc talked about starting me on glyburide if I couldn't get my sugars down a bit. I don't know about all the side effects, but it seems that it can cause hypoglycemia - especially at first, when your doctor may have to play around with the dosage a bit to get the right one. So you'll want to watch for signs of hypoglycemia and may need to test a bit more often while on it.
