In brief: Adding second agent
If your are not on maximum dose of metformin (which typically is 2000mg daily), then adding a second glucose lowering agent is the most logical next step as your diabetes is not apparently under control.
You must discuss this option with your physician to individualize your treatment plan as there are now various medications available in the market.
