what is this drug, or a medical book of curesron ## Hi Ron, Based on my research, DBX-13 is a comprised of 11 natural ingredients that are each shown to fight diabetes (by balancing blood sugar levels) without many of the harsh side effects of prescription medications. The strange part however, is that I can't find much information on it other than what is mentioned above; not even a list of ingredients. It makes me wonder if it's really legitimate to be honest. Where did you first hear about it? ## I seen it on a video with Jenny Thompson Director of Health Sciences Institute. ## DBX 13 is touted in one of those "we can cure anything" advertising circulars put out by a group called "Health Sciences Institute". Always wondered, if their "cures" are so gre...

As to how long you should take it, you should follow whatever instructions your doctor provided. Learn more Diethylcarbamazine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for your information given by by Verwon re banocide forte 100mg which acts only on filariasis.I fully appreciate his views on the subjec...

Metformin Hcl Er Tab 500mg in Mexico
4 Replies RSS
What is the name for Metformin HCL ER TAB 500mg ER in Mexico? ## I can't say for certain, but from what I could gather, Metformina (Glucophage XR) is the correct name for this in Mexico. Are you trying to order it online? ## Similar to your other question, once again, I have to advise you that it's best to just ask for the generic. The regulation of medications in Mexico is very sketchy, at best, so what may be available as a brand name for it today might not exist tomorrow and etc. However, the Spanish names that they use for the generic/active ingredient are usually very similar to what we use in the U.S. and that should enable you to find what you need. Learn more Metformin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you very much, I appreciate this informa...

Hello. I have a history of irregular periods. After seeing the dr when we were trying for a baby, she prescribed coseval and metformin tables. I conseved in a month or 2. But later found that baby was not growing and had to go for a dnc in dec. Now, we want to try again. But afraid that something like that might happen again. Could you tell me if the above 2 tablets(conseval and metformin) have something to do with that? And can i continue with them now and what should be the dose.

I've been on Metformin for several years and done well. Recently I refilled the script and the pharmacy had changed suppliers to aurobindo. The pills smelled like rotting fish but I managed to take it. My blood sugar was running higher on this med. the next refill smelled and tasted so strong I could hardly take the pills. I developed horrible nausea and severe diarrhea and lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks. Since my pharmacy refused to order the drug from a different manufacturer I changed to Walgreens who did not use aurobindo and immediately the symptoms were gone. I question the quality control of that manufacturer and worry about using drugs from many foreign countries. I am willing to pay more to feel that the drugs are safe!!! ## Hello, Maggie! How are you? Sorry about the problem that ...

need to see picture of glyburide/metformin .5/00 believe i may have received the wrong pills they look different than last ones ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? Can you please post back with the markings on them, as well as their shape and color? Since this is a generic medication, it is manufactured by several companies and each has different markings and may also look different. This is very common with generic medications, because it creates market competition and helps keep prices down. However, I can't possibly list them all or post pictures of all them for you. The FDA classifies this medication as being an oral antidiabetic agent and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizzies, flatulence, bloating and hypoglycemia. Can you post back with these additional detail...

i have b taken for 2 week and my belly look like i going to blow out ## Hello Anita! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metformin, which the FDA classifies as an oral anti-diabetic medication. Bloating is listed as a normal side effect of this medication, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and hypoglycemia. However, the good news is that side effects tend to be transient and go away, after your body gets used to the medication. You should see an improvement in about 2 more weeks, if not, please consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

metformin 500mg tab her - results - extended release

I have noticed the poor fasting test numbers that I am experiencing with the Glibizide 5mg extended release and the metformin 500 extended release. a1c numbers now at 7.5 from 6.4.. Is this normal with extended release meds and blood sugar testing results? ## Hello, Tony! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, usually the controlled release medications give you better control over your blood sugar. Has anything else changed, such as changing your diet? Are you on any other medications? Has your activity level changed? The FDA classifies these as being oral antidiabetic medications and their typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia.
