Heritage Pharmaceuticals and 500 mg. Metformin
Post a Reply
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?

DBX- 13 scam
68 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...

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...

Post a Reply
Aurobindo - SHUT THEY DOWN! We should be notified when a manufacture changes we should be notified. After all it is our money going to this companies. I opened my Metformin and noticed the shape and the SMELL was unbelievable - FISH SMELL. I will only accept meds from TEVA. How do they get away with this! I called the pharmacy and they were not very concern. I'm going to inform everyone I know, family, friends, church members, EVERYONE about this manufacture.

Rx for metformin supplied for month or November was ineffective and had much more odor than usual. All glucose. Readings were very high. With December refill. Readings returned closer to previous readings ## Hello, Ken! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you experienced. The odor is normal, it all smells like that, but some manufacturers coat the tablets, to prevent it from smelling so strong. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and diarrhea. How much of a change did you experience in your blood sugar readings? ## Aurobindo should be SHUT DOWN. I opened my Metformin and the SMELL was over-whelming. I refuse to take it and I don't want any of my meds from this manufacture - EVER! I will only...

no periods for last 2months.doctor prescribed gynovit syrup.what is the use.what is if it is taken along with metformin tablets also?? ## From what I could gather, Grovit syrup is simply a multivitamin supplement for use in treating vitamin deficiency states as well as increased vitamin demands for pregnancy, lactation, growing children, and even severe infections. The Active ingredients in Grovit syrup are: Vitamin A (palmitate) + Vitamin B complex + Vitamin C + Vitamin D + Vitamin E Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Metformin and Vitamins.
