Metformin Hcl 500 Mg Side Effects

can i use tab.Metformin for weight reduction? i wanted to know the side effects of Metformin ## I wouldn't count on using an anti-diabetic drug for weight loss. Your best bet is a healthy change in eating habits and regular exercise. A pill won't lose the weight for you. Sorry to sound blunt, but it would be ignorant to think otherwise. As far as side effects go...the most common adverse effect of metformin is gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and increased flatulence; metformin is more commonly associated with gastrointestinal side-effects than most other anti-diabetic drugs. The most serious potential side-effect of metformin use is lactic acidosis; this complication is very rare, and the vast majority of these cases seem to be related to com...

What is the difference between Mclazide - M and Anclazide - M? I was prescribed Anclazide - M but unable to get this medicine and the pharmacy has given Mclazide - M as an option. Are they both the same? ## Hello, Guarav! How are you? They are both listed as containing Gliclazide and Metformin, most commonly used to treat diabetes, so yes, they are the same. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhea and low blood sugar. Is there anything else I can help with?

If you happen to have any additional information you can provide on the ingredients that ARE listed as well as other supplement facts, please post back so others, including myself can be of more assistance. Also, if it does contain any stimulants, this may be a red flag for those with high blood pressure. Will look forward to hearing back! Thanks! ## I have been sent ...

Multiple medications are often prescribed to help bring someone's blood sugar down and bring it under control, so you should follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Are you also watching your diet to minimize sugar and fat intake?

1 Reply RSS
I've been diabetic for years but here lately my hormones, hot flashes has been bad , I'm turning 52 now it seem as if I can't get my daily testing especially in the AM under control I'm on 5mg of Glibizide and 500mg 2x a day of metformin. Does hormones changing have anything to do with our diabetes testing numbers? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? I'm sorry about what you've been going through. Yes, it may affect it, because insulin is actually a hormone. However, you should have it checked out by your doctor, to be certain that there is nothing else going on. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Metformin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence and hyperglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you doing? I'm sorry, but due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists for each related condition. For instance, pain medications will need to be prescribed by a pain management specialist and Clonazepam from another, a PCP can only write now for general medications, such as those for high blood pressure. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to the appropriate doctors? I...
