Historically, metformin and the sulfonylureas were the most-prescribed drugs for type 2 diabetes. These agents dominated the early lines of therapy until disease progression required insulin replacement. However, the emergence of more-effective, safer, and/or better-tolerated therapies, such as the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-IV) inhibitors, sodium glucose contransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors, and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, has provided physicians with a much broader array of therapeutic options. Moreover, because of a better understanding of type 2 diabetes and its complications, treatment is becoming more individualized. Numerous branded agents from both established and new drug classes are now jostling for position in the treatment paradigm.
