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...

What is the protocol for warning patients, pharmacists, etc. in the event a medication is causing adverse effects? Do we have to await for the ambulance chasers TV commercials warning us of legal suits or is there an entity policing the prescription/consumer industry?

metformin smell
106 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...

My wife is suffering from the condition of LVF,chronic heart disease, diabetes and some kidney problem. Can regular use of Ivabrad 5 mg medicine have any side affects relating to increase in creatinine.

DBX- 13 scam
174 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 pill difference
1 Reply RSS
What's the difference in the pill with 227 on one side and the ones I take that have 102H? Both are 500mg. ## They have just been manufactured by different companies, otherwise, they are the same medication in the same dosage, according to FDA guidelines. It's typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, diarrhea, and hypoglycemia. Are you having any problems with either one of them?

Heritage Pharmaceuticals and 500 mg. Metformin
6 Replies RSS
Heritage brand Metformin did not work for me, but I took it for months and developed blisters around the outside of my mouth which is not herpes. Now back on Ascend Metformin and it is working for me. The blisters and inflammation are lessening but not completely gone. Has anyone had this problem and know what it is and how to treat it? ## My blood sugar numbers were very high when I was on Amneal and Heritage brand Metformin. My eyesight was affected and I had inflammation and blisters around my mouth. I am now on Ascend Metformin and my blood sugar is way down between 73 and 107. The inflammation is slowly going away and the blisters are lessening. I live in SoCal and can't get help from the manufacturer or the pharmacies. I filed a complaint with the FDA and a grievance with my i...

norethisterone 5mg dose to induce period?
6 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...

Where Is Solco Metformin Made
11 Replies RSS
In what country is SOLCO Metformin made? ## Solco Healthcare is a U.S. based company that is FDA approved. Have you had some problem with this product? There are more Metformin details available here. ## Solco metformin is made in India like so many other generics of this drug. This is according to the label facsimile shown on the NIH Dailymed site (search on metformin and then locate Soclo in the results), Solco metformin is made in India. ## I obtain my Metformin meds at Publix. Since Publix changed to this manufacturer I noticed this med has a bad rotten odor to them . . . disgusting. I also noticed that since taking them, my body is reacting more -- with nausea, loose bowels and stomach cramping. How is this medication different from the one Publix was previously dispensing? Why the...
