Question about Glyburide 5mg
Hello. I am taking metformin Er 2000mg daily. Doc just prescribed glyburide 5mg once daily, additionally. The side effects for this one little 5mg green pill are just awful! I shake, get weak (low blood sugar), sweat, heart palpitations etc. Although I take it with food, I have very slow digestion so it can take up to 3-4 hours to hit me. I end up eating a sweet something to help the side effects. Which is ridiculous! My question is: how can a 5mg pill affect me so harshly? Eating sugar to counteract it is defeating the point! My average blood sugar is over 200. I am cutting out sugar, eating more protein , taking my meds. Metformin Er gives me no problems, but the normal metformin upset my tummy. ## Hello, Sharon! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the problem that you've bee...

I have been taking Metanx for about 6 months and it was working ok. I Recently lost my job and when I went to my Poditrist he told me of a new medicine that can save me a lot of money. So I decided to go to my pharmacist and get it. The name of the medicine is Folinic Plus. It cost me $16.00 for 30 tablets. What a savings! I also like the tablet form. I'm hoping it works.
