Metformin Overview

Metformin, marketed under the trade name Glucophage among others, is the first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes,[3][4] particularly 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 side effect...

DBX- 13 scam
199 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...

metformin smell
111 Replies RSS
why does it smell like fish? ## I got my script refilled the other day and the new one smells like fish too! My first bottle (different manufact) did not smell like fish. Beginning to wonder if it is of good quaility ## It is an odor from one of the fillers they use in making the medication, nothing to worry about. Since each company that makes the generic version of med can use different fillers, then some might have the odor and some won't. ## Yes, it is too something to worry about! With all the horrible cheap fillers being used these days by money grubbing foreign countrues - killing our animals and probably us too. The brand I got from Walgreens is fine - even old pills dont take on a smell. But the cheap kind sold by Walmart and as I know of, Strogers hospital in chicago smell...

What happens if x Met sr 500mg tab is consumed on an empty stomach? ## Actually, that's when it should be taken, on an empty stomach just before a meal. This contains the active ingredient Metformin in a time released formulation, it is an oral antidiabetic medication that's used to help lower and control blood sugar. Taking it just before a meal allows some of the medication to start being released, so it can start working to help control your blood sugar by the time you are digesting your food. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and low blood sugar. Learn more XMet-SR details here. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Will xmet 500mg works after food to control sugar, coz I am using it and my sugar level is 215mg/dl after foo...
