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...

DBX- 13 scam
168 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...

Anyone with same symptons ## Jalra-M contains the active ingredients Vidagliptin and Metformin, both of which are oral antidiabetic medications. And yes, those symptoms can be normal for two reasons, one is the medications themselves, they can cause side effects, just the same as any other medication. And the second is due to the fact that your sugar was so high and is now being brought lower. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am 80 years old and i had hypoglycaemia Dr prescribed JALRA 50/1000 twice a day before food.at the time of high sugar and now my sugar level fasting 120 and ...

norethisterone 5mg dose to induce period?
4 Replies RSS
I have not had a cycle since having my son a year ago. I also have PCOS. I have taken 5mg Norethisterone tablets 3 times a day for 5 days. It has been 3 days now and although I had period pains on the last day of the tablets I have no signs of my period arriving. Do you think my dose was high enough? Many thanks. ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? Is that the dose your doctor advised you to take? Generally, missing your periods isn't a problem, unless you're trying to get pregnant again, so it's not anything to worry about. However, most women do get their periods about 3 days, or so, after stopping it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. Are you on any other medications? ## I also take metf...

What Do All Metformin Pills Look Like
16 Replies RSS
What does Metformin 1000 mg look like in all forms? ## Metformin is a generic medication, so it is manufactured by several different companies and they will all have different markings to enable their identification, thus there is really no way I could post what all of them look like and the descriptions. Just to give you a few examples... White, oblong, 93 on one side, 7214 on the opposite. White, oblong, GP 128. White, oblong, Z 71. and white, oval, C 474 are all examples of 1000mg Metformin tablets. Learn more Metformin details here. Do any of these match the tablet you're questioning? If not, then please post back with the markings from it, as well as the basic description and I'll gladly check it for you! ## I received a new prescription of Metformin HCL tabs and they are d...

I am 19 years old. I have been taking FORMITOL (contains metformin) since my doctor told me that I have PCOS. Recently, I consulted another Gynae, she prescribed me Krimson 35 saying that I have normal GTT level, so I don't need to take metformin. I haven't started taking Krimson 35 as i haven't got my periods yet. My breast are large. I am afraid that it may enlarge my breasts even more. I have severe acne and hirsutism too. I am not able to loose weight despite exercising and dieting. Can you tell me whether this tablet will help me in curing acne and loosing weight? And what effect will it have on breasts and other parts of my body? ## This is an oral contraceptive tablet, so yes, it may help to rebalance your hormones, which might resolve your problems.

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg Side Effects
25 Replies RSS
can i use tab.Metformin for weight reduction? i wanted to know the side effects of Metformin ## I wouldn't count on using an anti-diabetic drug for weight loss. Your best bet is a healthy change in eating habits and regular exercise. A pill won't lose the weight for you. Sorry to sound blunt, but it would be ignorant to think otherwise. As far as side effects go...the most common adverse effect of metformin is gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and increased flatulence; metformin is more commonly associated with gastrointestinal side-effects than most other anti-diabetic drugs. The most serious potential side-effect of metformin use is lactic acidosis; this complication is very rare, and the vast majority of these cases seem to be related to com...

5 Replies RSS
Hi, i've been using triphasil for 3 months. I took them every morning at half past ten. I'll notice many side effects. I lost weight everyday. When I went back the Dr gave me pills I'm not familiar with (trigesterel). I changed from 10:30 am to 8:30 pm. I haven't noticed any side effects but just that I eat a lot ever since I've been on the pill...will I gain more weight or will I remain a size 28? I'm scared to gain weight but don't wanna loose weight as well. ## Hello, Emelda! How are you? They are really the same, just different brand names, so it is doubtful that you will see much change. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting and PMS-like symptoms. Most side effects improve after about 3 mo...
