Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Don't take it over the counter rather consult diabetologist to evaluate you for complications of diabetes besides accurate prescription.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

People suffering from type II diabetes need medicines to control their blood glucose levels. There are a number of anti-diabetic medicines available in the market and each of it works in its unique way to control blood glucose level. I came across a write up 'Diabetes Medications - Drugs at Glance'. They can differ in the way of administration as well. Some can be taken orally while others can be given as an injection. You can read and understand the concept.
