    Has anyone ever seen this before.

    I was d/xed in May 2003 as T2 and put on Glucotrol XL 10 mg. My morning 2 hour after breakfast
    reading has always been around 105-110.

    My insurance company switched me this month to the generic version (Glipizide XL 10 mg) and now my
    same morning reading (after eating same thing) is 160-170!

    All my other reading are normal.

    Is it possible that the generic version takes a lo0t longer to start acting? I usually wait 45
    minutes to 1 hour after taking before eating breakfast.
    Thanks ... Ray
