Im reading conflicting info as basic as what it actually does.

 

This drug seems to work like a charm for me. I dont see any side effects

 

Does anyone have any info on this drug, good / bad / ugly? Long term studies?

 

Thanks!

It is a sulfonylurea (SU), and stimulates more insulin production. Thus if you have limited beta cells, it can lead to faster burnout and insulin dependence. Short-term effects may include hypoglycemia.
