What is the required effective use of glucophase?

Newly diagnosed with type I was prescribed glucophase. I need to take 3 tablets at night only after meal. Is this the normal treatment for newly diagnosed. Sugar varies from 10 to 14.

Trepiline won't reduce your depression instead it increases it by raising the blood rate in the vessels located on both sides of your head, which will reduce your ability to sleep and cause you panic and fustration
