How soon after taking Metaglip will my symptoms improve?

In a clinical study, people taking Metaglip (glipizide/metformin) had a significant response to treatment after 18 weeks. However, it may take up to six months for your glycemic levels to become stable. During this time, blood glucose monitoring will determine whether this medication is working and what dosage you should be taking. This drug is initially prescribed at a low dose, which is increased as needed. You can improve your outcome by eating properly and exercising while taking Metaglip.
