Went to the dr. today and was put on Amaryl

My A1C was 5.8 but to get it there I had pretty much quit eating carbs and exercise a lot. So he put me on Amaryl to try to let me eat like a normal person. He said he'll put me on a bit of basal insulin if this doesn't work well.

My C Peptide was in the range of normal but it was at the very bottom of normal.

Anyone take a low dose of Amaryl? How is it working for you? Side effects?
