I have taken metformin 500mg tabs Sandoz for years today when I picked up my medicine they gave me metformin 500 mg tab zyd. What is the difference in the two? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Sandoz and Zydus are just the manufacturers, so that's the only difference based on what you've posted. Your pharmacy is just carrying one that's been manufactured by a different company.

what is dbx 13
for type one diabetes and is it effective ## Hi, Amira! How are you? Many people have been asking about this, since that email newsletter/ad was sent out. On top of the fact that those claims are unsubstantiated, there is no actual testing that proves any substances work as was claimed, I can't even find any information on them anywhere to confirm that they actually exist. I've searched various sources, including medical, scientific and independent. It really makes no sense to me that someone would make such claims, but provide no information on the substances being discussed and how to obtain them. Thus, I can only conclude that there are reasons such information isn't available and neither are the substances. Has anyone else found more details? ## Health Sciences Institute...

Strength Plus Lehyam
i am 26, 180 cm hight & 68 kgs. I am diabetic for last 1 year. and i lost my weight almost 10 kgs in these session. i need to gain weight up to atleast 75 kgs. ayurvedic medicine strength plus can can gain weight without any side effects ? or can use diabetics? pls reply me soon.. ## Since you are diabetic, it may not be safe for you to gain a lot of weight. It can have an effect on your blood sugar and may cause it to be more unstable. Learn more diabetes details here. And as to an Ayurvedic product like that, it has not been tested to see if it will cause problems with any prescription medications or medical conditions. Thus, the only advice I can really give you is that you should talk to your doctor before taking anything new, or trying to gain any weight, to make sure it is saf...

Gynovit syrup
no periods for last prescribed gynovit syrup.what is the use.what is if it is taken along with metformin tablets also?? ## From what I could gather, Grovit syrup is simply a multivitamin supplement for use in treating vitamin deficiency states as well as increased vitamin demands for pregnancy, lactation, growing children, and even severe infections. The Active ingredients in Grovit syrup are: Vitamin A (palmitate) + Vitamin B complex + Vitamin C + Vitamin D + Vitamin E Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Metformin and Vitamins. So in my honest opinion, you should be fine taking the two together. I hope this helps! ## Should we take gynovit syrup before or after food ## You have to take 10ml trice a day before food.. ## Whether Dexorange sy...

I barely srtarted to take Jalra M 50/500mg and I had being expeiencing stomach ache. I read that this symptom is parte of the side effects. Should I continue using this medication or shoud I stop. Please respond Thank You ## after taking Jalra M, I have metallic taste, find fruits and food fried in oil smelling foul and increase belly fat. Doctor advises no change of medicine. Shall i change medicine, ## Hi, Nacho! The side effect of the stomach ache should taper off after awhile, as your body gets used to the medication and not treating your diabetes would be far more dangerous, because it can be life threatening. And Bhagabat, those are also side effects that may wear off after awhile. How long have either of you been taking this medication? ## My one of friend taking Tb jalra once da...
