In brief: Good sugar control!

This combination medication (metformin/glipizide) is a commonly used treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus.
It is usually quite effective for lowering glucose levels. If you take too much, your sugar may drop below normal. You should have normal kidney function documented before starting metformin.
