How long did it take for everyone to come off of their medicine completely after being sleeved?

You can only go with what your doctor recommends but I am type 2, & with cutting out carbs & taking a 500mg pill of Glumetza daily, I always test under 6. My doc told me to stop the meds when I go on the pre-op liquid diet. He said he will re-evalutate me weeks after the surgery, because more than likely, I won't need any of my pills anymore (I'm on BP pills & Colesterol pills & a Water pill.) Hooray!!!! I wish the same for you!

Was off of insulin for 2 weeks after surgery but had to go back on it again, but a lot less. I still take 2000 ml metforin also.

I was on 2000mg of Metformin and 100mg of Actos. (along with other non diabetic stuff). I was sleeved in November, and am down to no Actos, and 1000mg Metformin. My A1C went from 7.0 to 6.0 in that timeframe. I am going back for more blood work in June and expect to go down another 500mg of Met. I am backing of slowly, so my goal is at 1 year post sleeve I will be 100% at goal weight and drug free. I am already off my cholesterol medicine and half a dose down on my HBP meds.

That is not a time-set thing. When/if depends on your A1c. Do remember, if you go back to a high carb lifestyle, your A1c can go back up. I have been in remission for a year, but I test every other morning, and a few other random times a week, and I a1c every 3 months.
