JANUMET = 50 / 500 OR 50/1000mg.

Janumet is available and is one of the expensive blood-sugar medicines in India.

Doctors prescribe this as per the patient's pocket.

It is an imported medicine and has no MRP.

As little as possible. So much so that I feel hungry at 2am and have to eat something to be able to sleep, or else I keep tossing and turning.

Anup, you have been very kind,and thank you for advising me. I am in a "Catch 22" situation.Last December was hospitalized for COPD,they brought down the sugar to 100/150 and started insulin 12:12:20.They gave me lots to eat, rice chappaties,veg etc as per dietitian.But at home levels shot within a month. I am still breathless,ankles twisted due to Posterior Tibial Tendonitis last 4yrs,walking is out.I am told insulin 30:30:35 + the tabs are putting on weight.Retired VRS at 55 and single with positive attitude I am home with no friends, i.e.no 'physical' activity of any sort!!

I have read about most fat removal Technics, but I dont think I can afford any.

As it is the medicine bills are making a big hole in my pocket.

After taking this much medicine plus insulin, still you have no control in sugar fasting level means, I hope you are not under control of your diet. Pl. control your diet strictly. then automatically you can reduce the medicine. check your sugar level when you are in extreme hungry.

have bneen having Janumet for over an year now.

yes janumet is available in indian market.prolong use always have side effects.

Been taking it for the last three years.

Is JANUMET and PIOZ the same?
