glycomet r 500
1 Reply RSS
I know that Glycomet is used by diabetic patients. My wife has become fat unnecessarily. She is 92 kg, 38 years and has 158 cms height. She has thyroiditis and and her USG of Abdomen and Pelvis report shows that she has mild fatty liver and polycystic ovaries (3-4mm follicles). The doctor has suggested her to take glycomet r 500 twice a day. Is it OK if she takes glycomet r 500 to reduce her weight and have a baby? We are also planning to have a baby. Please kindly suggest us. ## She should take the medication as prescribed by her doctor. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and flatulence. Has she started taking it, yet? Has there been any change?

Long term use of Jardiance
15 Replies RSS
Well, I have been on Jardiance for 4 months now. I have lost 42 pounds. I have reduced meds. But I have to say, I am peeing every hour, and am fairly incontinent. I also have a funny ashy taste in my mouth. Is there anybody else out there on this stuff? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? I'm sorry about the side effects that you're experiencing. As listed by the FDA, Jardiance is used to treat type 2 diabetes and help boost weight loss. The increased urination is normal, that's how the medication eliminated the excess sugars from the body, other side effects may include nausea, hypotension, UTIs and hypoglycemia. What dosage are you on? You may need an adjustment, if it's pushing you to the point where you are experiencing incontinence. ## I go back to the doctor next week....

Metformin tinnitus/hearing loss
2 Replies RSS
Doctor put me on Metformin, two days after I started experiencing severe stomach pain and tinnitus in one ear. Went to ER, told it was side effects of this drug. I stopped taking Metformin. The stomach pain stopped but I still after 7 days have the tinnitus in my ear. I have read several forums that talk about ringing in the ears while on this medication. I started taking B12 to see if that would help but nothing so far. Has anyone experienced hearing loss after or while taking Metformin? My doctor never told me of this side effect. I think it should be shown as a definite side effect of this drug. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Yes, those can be side effects of this medication, however, they can also be side effects of uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure, as reported by the NIH...

DBX- 13 scam
177 Replies RSS
In January 2013 - I recently purchased a subscription to the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) newsletter and got the book "Miracles from the Vault." I scoured the pages to find DBX-13 which they advertised as the diabetes miracle cure, and couldn't find it anywhere. I called HSI, and after three attempts and by threatening to take them to court for false advertising, a response finally came by email. DBX-13 is called X-Cravings. But get this... it is no longer being manufactured. X-Cravings appears to be a formula to help you stop craving food... a diet product... and I guess they apparently felt this would help you lose weight which would help your diabetes. I placed a call to the manufacturer of X-Cravings, Nutricology. Tel: (800)545-9960 who claims they don't know that...

Nausea and dizziness
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking 12.5 mg Jardiance once per day at breakfast for 8 days now. Added to that are 50 units of humalin n morning and bedtime morning sugar today 5.4 and 5 lb weight loss. Sounds like a match made in Heaven but the nausea (no vomiting) and the dizziness keep me pretty much lying down. Does this get better or disappear over time? Anyone know? I'm trying to persevere with it but it's horrible feeling this way. ?? ## Such side effects usually do go away, but it may take about 4 to 5 weeks for your body to get used to the medication. You may also experience headache, and diarrhea. Has anything changed, at all, yet? ## I'm actually feeling much better today....not 100%, but better. Thanks for your reply. It's good to know I'm not alone in this. ??

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...

metformin recalls

What is the protocol for warning patients, pharmacists, etc. in the event a medication is causing adverse effects? Do we have to await for the ambulance chasers TV commercials warning us of legal suits or is there an entity policing the prescription/consumer industry?

metformin smell
106 Replies RSS
why does it smell like fish? ## I got my script refilled the other day and the new one smells like fish too! My first bottle (different manufact) did not smell like fish. Beginning to wonder if it is of good quaility ## It is an odor from one of the fillers they use in making the medication, nothing to worry about. Since each company that makes the generic version of med can use different fillers, then some might have the odor and some won't. ## Yes, it is too something to worry about! With all the horrible cheap fillers being used these days by money grubbing foreign countrues - killing our animals and probably us too. The brand I got from Walgreens is fine - even old pills dont take on a smell. But the cheap kind sold by Walmart and as I know of, Strogers hospital in chicago smell...

I want to know what is in this medicine, the amount of eash property- how much more than an over the counter drug/ ## Please explain what is in this medicine and also is vitamin C and B12 over the counter just as good. Thank you ## I just started this metanx a little over a week now. I was given a pamphlet on it. It states that metanx contains the active ingredients of folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 which allow the body to absorb them without having to break them down first like you would have to do with OTC vitamins. It is only available with a prescription and you take two of the pills a day. Hope this information helps. ## The ingredients list provided by Krystal is correct, it is generally given to help Diabetic Neuropathy patients. The breakdown is 2.8mgs of Folic Acid, 25...
