zzzquil and Type 2 Diabetes
Is this safe for a person with Type 2 Diabetes? I think it is loaded with sugars but cannot find any exact information about this. I think it might be the reason my sugar count has been up for the past month. I have a problem staying asleep and have been using zzzquil for the past month or so and it seems to help, but if it is keeping my sugar count high I'll have to stop taking it. ## Hello, Larry! How are you? One of the inactive ingredients is high fructose corn syrup, which could raise your sugar levels, especially if you're sensitive to it, as some people tend to be. If you need a sleep aid that doesn't contain it, the active ingredient in this is just Diphenhydramine, 50mgs per dose. Diphenhydramine is available by itself in Benadryl and its generics, as well as in pro...

Problems with metformin Vomiting and diarrhea every 2 to 3 months
I have prediabetes and was prescribed metformin 500 1x a day. Got along for almost a year now having all kinds of gastric problems, pain nausea etc. also have vomiting and diarrhea once every 2 to 3 months. Now trying 1/2 a pill. Would extended release help and is the vomiting occasionally related? ## Hello, Deejoe! How are you? Metformin can cause gastric side effects, it's fairly common for it to do so. Other side effects may include dizziness, flatulence, stomach pain and hypoglycemia. As to the occasional vomiting and diarrhea, if they are occurring that infrequently, they most likely aren't related to the medication. Are you on any other medications? Have you changed your dietary intake, at all? There are many things that could potentially cause such symptoms. How are you d...

Diane 35 / 4 Days Delayed :(
Hi, I'm taking diane35 with metformin for my PCOS. This is my 3rd month that i'm using it. The first and second po was okay, nagkaroon ako ng menstruation. But i'm quiet worried this month kase 4 days na po ko delayed after i finished the pack. :( is it normal? What should i do? Kailangan ko na po ba bumalik sa OB ko? Eventho after 6 months pa dapat ang appointment ko sa kanya? Or do i need to wait till 7th day and pag di pa din dumating period ko i'll take another pack? Please help naman po. :( thank you so much!!

GLYCOMET GP1 AND glimepiride 2MG
I was prescribed JANUMET XR 1000/50 MG 2 TABLETS in the morning before breakfast and 2mg GLIMEPIRIDE after breakfast. I was suggested bya doctor to take GLYCOMET GP1 twice daily instead of JANUMET XR. should I continue to take GLIMEPIRIDE because i read that GP1 contains 1 mg of GLIMEPIRIDE ## Hello Rao! How are you? Yes, you should double check with the doctor, but it seems that he meant to replace your other medications with the Glycomet GP1, since it contains Metformin and Glimepiride. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and low blood sugar. What are your normal sugar levels? Were they not in control with the Janumet XR?
