met small 500 tablet
doc advised me to take this tablet 3 times a day( after food) i.e morning, afternoon, and night.... so my question is if I consume this tablet 3 times in a day then will it nullify the sugar level I mean will it bring the sugar level below 50 ??? ## Hi Mady, Unfortunately there's no real way of knowing how this medication is going to end up affecting you and your blood sugar levels until you try it enough times to develop a true opinion. The effect this has on someone else's blood sugar levels may be totally different than yours based on several individual and biological factors. But with all do respect, isn't your doctor supposed to be monitoring your progress on a regular basis while you're first starting out on Metformin?

Replacement of Glycomet GP 1 with Glycomet 500 two tabs.
I was earlier prescribed Glycomet 500 but the sugar level was not coming down so I was prescribed glycomet gp 1 in the night and amaryl 2mg in the morning in emty stomach. Now the fasting sugar level is still about 130 but post lunch it is in limit. I got a lot of glycomet 500 tabs in stock as I have purchased 2 months tabs. Can I take two tabs of glycomet 500 in place of glycomet gp 1. Please answer.

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...
