What do I do to bring it down? I am taking 250 mg of metformin and just had a 301 blood sugar reading.
More potent medicine: Hi. A higher dose of metformin would help (1000 mg twice/day, AM & PM), but may not be enough. My favorite next drug would be a GLP-1 drug (liraglutide or eventide) or an SGLT2 inhibitor (canagliflozin or dapagliflozin) because they can be added to metformin without risking hypoglycemia.
