Welcome to Ask a Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Medicine can be cutdown according to your present clinical conditions, it is better to have less medicines if the diabetes can control with single molecule then it need to be tried first, in my opinion exercise would be best it is most advisable to try it, and stay away from the stress, psychological factors could cause the muscular pain and fatigue, try to come out of this.
Hope I have answered your query, let me know for further assistance.
