Metformin Overview

Metformin, marketed under the tradename Glucophage among others, is the first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.[3][4] This is particularly true in people who are overweight.[5] It is also used in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome.[3] Limited evidence suggests metformin may prevent the cardiovascular disease and cancer complications of diabetes.[6][7] It is not associated with weight gain.[7] It is taken by mouth.[3] Metformin is generally well tolerated.[8] Common...

Glycomet 500 Mg Side Effects
32 Replies RSS
my mother has been prescribed Glycomet 500 mg. But after she has started the medicine, she is experiencing problem of Piles. Is this problem related to glycomet ## Glycomet contains the active ingredient Metformin, it is an oral antidiabetic agent, used to help lower or control blood sugar. It is not known to cause hemorrhoids. Has she consulted her doctor? It is difficult to say how any medication will affect any individual and thus, it may or may not be related. It could also be due to dietary changes, if she's had to adjust what she eats, due to being diabetic. 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...

Ratio vs Apo Metformin 500mg
1 Reply RSS
Hello - recently I moved and changed pharmacies. My renewal for Metformin from the new drug store says Apo-Metformin 500mg. My old medication from previous Drug store says Ratio-Metformin 500 mg. Is there a difference in how these work? ## No, they are just manufactured by different companies, but the medication and how it works is the same. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Diabetes, Metformin, Glipermide, Trajenta. Insulin (Novomix 30)
1 Reply RSS
I was diabetic 2 and in the beginning prescribed Glipermide and Metformin but later it was suggested Metformin is not suitable if Uric acid is 1.5 or more, I had to stop it and was taking Glyciphage G1 but did not control sugar. I was suggested to take Insulin (First Insulatard and then Novomix 30) and Trajenta 5. This helped in controlling sugar to some extent. But some times I had spurt of FBS and RBS. PlS suggest any recent medicine for Diab 2 ## Does novamix 30 works better with metmorfin or with glimpride since I discussed with people they shared it works better results
