Metformin has helped some women, with PCOS, by improving the way their bodies use insulin, but it can cause some side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, weight changes and flatulence.

Looking for help with the cost, on medicare but will not cover it, I am on disability, ## I can't find a complete assistance program for this and most of those are for people who have no insurance, anyway. However, they do have a discount that you can receive on your prescription and you can call them about getting that savings card at 877-484-2869. People who qualify can get up to $25 off for 12 months. Have you consulted with your doctor about using a different medication, if you can't afford this one?

what is major differences between metnax and neurotin in treatment of neurophy for diabetes....taking neurotin now .... doctor said i should try metnax any comments ? ## Metanx is actually a nutritional supplement and, it can help some people, if their pain is caused or aggravated by a deficiency in the vital nutrients it contains. However, there is no guarantee that it will help you. Neurontin is an actual medication, it contains the anticonvulsant Gabapentin, which has been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. How has it been working for you?

storvass 40
1 Reply RSS
My husband was taking storvass40 . In feb he had to undergo knee surgery so his diabetic doctor reduced dose to storvass 20. Now can he start storvass 40 again. His recent test lipid profile shows hdl cholestrol as 38.3.. ldl 53.1.. cholestrol [[chod [pod]] 115.8 triglycerides 122.1. vldl 24.4 chol/hdlchol ratio 3.0. ldlchol/hdl chol ratio 1.4 are the readings normal or at a risk level? Can he start of with storvass 40 to bring HDL level high. ## What has his doctor advised? The relevant dosage here might not just depend on his levels, but his overall health and any other medications he may be taking. Therefore it isn't wise to raise the dosage, without his doctor's approval. In addition, is he also watching the amounts and types of cholesterol in his diet?

Metformin 500mg ER
3 Replies RSS
I took a Metformin ER 500mg today for the first time but I cut it in half because I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to. I took the first half and then saw that I was supposed to take it whole so I took the other half. I'm just wondering if I'm in any danger? ## Since it is time released tablet, you could get too much of the medication at once, so you will need to watch for the signs of low blood sugar, which could include: dizziness, drowsiness, tremors and fainting. You may want to make sure you have something sweet on hand that can bring it up, fast, such as a small glass or orange juice and then, when feeling better, a sandwich or something to help keep it up longer. Are there any other questions? ## how long / how many hours does metformin ER act? ## AJJAx, they s...

Can I Discontinue Glycomet 500
1 Reply RSS
my fasting sugar ranges between 98-108 and 2 hours after food it comes between 120-140. for previous 2 months i have been taking the tables glycomet.I am doing exercise on daily basis apart form swimming. can i discontinue the medicine ## Have you consulted your doctor about this? When you are diabetic, it is very important that you discuss such issues, with your doctor, before stopping any medication. Out of control blood sugar levels can cause serious medical complications. At this point, while your readings have improved, it could be because the medication is doing its job and if you stop taking it, they may steadily start to rise, again.
