Does Lialda come in IV form?

No, they dont. For any of the UC medicines to work, they must be taken orally (b/c they work topically on the large intestine). Thus, taking it intravenously would be a moot point.

 However, if you cant swallow Lialda pills, try Pentasa. The pills can be opened up and sprinkled onto food (like
 applesauce or yougart). Pentasa has the same active ingrediant as Lialda.

Lantus versus levemir insulin?

Insulin of any type causes your body to better use the sugar in your system. Insulin ALSO helps the body convert unused sugar to fat.
 Most patients, when they use insulin, gain weight.

 There are only two ways to lose weight:
 1) Exercise more. Use more calories than you eat.
 2) Eat less. Eat fewer calories than you use.

There are some recent studies that indicate that Lantus works better if you split your dosage into twice a day. Most doctors say take it at night, but new evidence sasy that you should take 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. Doing this has reduced my rapid insulin intake by about 1/3. You might want to talk to your doctor about this.

How long does suboxone withdrawal last?

Some slight symptoms can last 2-3 weeks, but those should be pretty mild. After 8 days, you should not be REAL achy. I know exactly what you are going through, just tough it out and in a week or so, you will have completely gotten through it. Try taking hot baths or sitting in a spa, that will help with the muscle aches. Try taking some Benadryl at night to help sleep.

How's the new medication januvia working?

My wife takes Januvia. It wasn't quite enough so the doc tried Janumet. It didn't work out, so now she's back on the Januvia and Glucomet? at night.
 At one time she used diet and exercise to successfully become diabetes free, after losing 180 pounds with a stomach operation. Unfortunately, her knees and one hip went bad and she gained some of the weight back and now is trying these things while recovering. So there seems to be an awful lot of trial and error in treating diabetes. I would definitely try exercise and diet like Mr.Peachy suggested before moving on to medications.
