I AM TAKING NOVOLOG AND LANTUS INSULIN. MY READINGS ARE SKYROCKETING. IS THEIR SOMETHING FOR INSULIN RESISTANCE OR TO SUPPRESS CARBS! ## Have you consulted your doctor? You may need to try other medications. An additional question, are you watching what you eat and getting proper exercise? Those are really the best things you can do to help lower your blood sugar levels, because medications isn't going to be able to do it all, by itself. You may want to try keeping a food diary for a few weeks, with the corresponding blood sugar readings, so you and your doctor can see if there is a pattern. It could help you discover if there are certain things you're eating that are causing yours to elevate and then you'll know what you should stay away from.

A friend got rolled up on while knocking on a door, he has a warrant... hides his diabetic aparatus under the door mat.. I go on a recon mission to extract the payload and destroy before a nice old lady sweeps the porch and calls 27 family members over for an intervention.. Also, theres concern of latent prints on the preloaded aparati.. sounds exciting so I volunteer for the mission.. like a swiss watch< I should have been a S.E.A.L.. after securing the payload, I begin to think.. Well if this fiend was whipping around with loaded hollow points, then he very likely, based on my past tours of duty, and personal knowledge of the "the needle and the damage done", was very likely concealing more bullets..

Metanx Interactions

With other vitamin supplements ## I can only advise you to discuss it with your doctor. Supplement products are not usually tested for side effects and interactions, as is done with actual prescription medications. So, it would basically come down to what the exact supplements in question contain, because getting too much of some nutrients, such as Potassium and Vitamin B12 can be just as dangerous as not having enough of them. Have you discussed it with your doctor?

1 Reply RSS
I have taken Metformin 500mg for about 5 or 6 years. Recently, the tablet has not been dissolving. The number on one side of the tablet is 500 and on the other side 571. This has been happening for several months. To get them to dissolve, I am cutting them in half the long way. Can you tell me why this tablet is not dissolving? Thanks! ## You should not be cutting these tablets in half, these are 500mg Metformin controlled release tablets and the shell of the tablet is not supposed to dissolve, or be digested. It is part of the mechanism they use to control the time released formulation. If you read the detailed drug information, there is a notice about this in there. Even though you see the tablet in your stool, that is just the shell and the medication has been released and used. Are ...

i was on Amtas AT for 2 years and after that suddenly my blood sugar started rising. I don't have any family history of diabetes. Now am taking Januvia because Janumet though being more effecting in controlling my sugar is causing side effects like loss of apatite and vomit like sensation. 1) Are these side effects normal, if so, can i keep taking janumet as januvia doesn't control my sugar that well. 2)Is my diabetes due to prolonged use of Amtas AT ? My age is 51. ## i took Januvia for over 2 months, i tolerated the nightmares, stuffy nose, swollen fingers and toes, waking up with fluid bags under each eye on separate occasions, but today i reached the peak of the side effects, felt like i was coming down with a bad flu, had a swollen tongue and mouth, was out of breath going ...

Watson 460

I'm glad there was info about what Watson 460 really was. I take glyburide 5 mg and just had my prescription refilled yesterday. When I went to take my pills this morning, I noticed immediately that they didn't look like what I had been taking. Now I know my pharmacist screwed up and will take them back at once! ## Glad you found the correct information here. Yes, the pill with the WATSON 460 markings contains 5mgs of Glipizide, this leads me to suspect that they may have misread your prescription. Has the pharmacy replaced it?
