110 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 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...

If she's been constipated, at all, and straining to have bowels movements, that may be contributing to the problem. ## effects of glycomet on pregnancy ## i was given glycomet 500mg but soon problem started wth me that...

I 4 5 on a round white tablet Label says Metformin 500 MG from Solco Health. . . from Publix grocery pharmacy's free program. These do not resemble the others that I had been taking from another pharmacy. ## You do have the correct medication, this does contain 500mgs of Metformin. Not all generics will look the same, as they have to have unique markings so the contents and manufacturer can be identified in case of emergency. Do you have any other questions? ## Where is Socol's metformin #145 manufactured? ## Solco does not make anything they are a marketing front for the Chinese manufacturer Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd - This company is/ws under investigation by the Chinese FDA
