Massage: Massage tends to relax your body. I fall asleep sometimes during it. Your muscles get the kneading which is not usual for them and this may be something that makes them "tired" which is felt the next day.

Dr. William Harris
Family Medicine 33 years experience
The equivalent 5-day Onglyza treatment would be once-weekly Bydureon injections. You get all of the benefits of a daily pill in a weekly shot. There is no equivalent, weekly (more convenient) dosing form of metformin yet -- we're still stuck with the once-daily metformin so far...
