What medication should I talk to my doctor about?

I am an insulin dependent type 2 Diabetic. I think I need to add something else to the mix.

I took Januvia for several years but overall did not see much difference. after taking it for a few years, I became allergic to it.

I cannot take metformin or glipizide as I became allergic to these as well after several years. I have seen commercials for many different diabetes drugs like Rybelsus, Tresiba, etc.

I am planning to talk with my doctor and see if he will write a prescription for one of these medicines.

Which medicine would be best to discuss with him? I would like to be informed when I speak to him regarding this matter... At this time I am reading good things about Rybelsus. Your insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  1. Hi there! Great question - and so good that you are becoming informed as well - it will really vary by person and as you mention your past experiences so it will be good to see what he is thinking!
