i have b taken for 2 week and my belly look like i going to blow out ## Hello Anita! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Metformin, which the FDA classifies as an oral anti-diabetic medication. Bloating is listed as a normal side effect of this medication, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence and hypoglycemia. However, the good news is that side effects tend to be transient and go away, after your body gets used to the medication. You should see an improvement in about 2 more weeks, if not, please consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does metformin work for people with high blood pressure and can anyone take it? ...

Learn more Metformin details here. It could even just be that the current dosage is too hight for you, because that can also be an overdose symptom. What have you been advised?

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 suffered profound and sudden hearing loss just a few weeks after my physician put me on Metformin 500s, and I strongly suspect this medication. I am not even pre-diabetic, and have a healthy diet, just a body that has been stubborn to lost adipose tissue in my mid-50s, although my cholesterol is 70 and BP is usually 110/70 with blood sugar on the low side. He prescribed Metformin, thinking it may 'trick' my body into whatever, but I've read something about the activity involved in the inner ear area with chemical change, and highly suspect this in my unilateral hearing loss, right ear. I've been to Univ of AL for three proc now, nine trips, to no avail, with no insurance....screwed ## Hello, Feltygal! How are you? I'm very sorry about the hearing loss. However, Met... ...

That can have a great effect of your sugar level, because the medication isn't going to do every thing. Anything with simple sugars, such as sweets and fruits will cause elevations, so will anything high in fat. Do you also exercise each day? That is also vital towards controlling your blood sugar. What dose of Metformin do you take? ...

Metformin Prescription?
1 Reply RSS
Is it possible to get a prescription for Metforman/glucophage online or to find it online? I am worried, because I have been gaining weight rapidly this past year. I am morbidly obese, and my doctors will not help me because my A1c was only 5.5. I am worried about type 2 diabetes, and I think my A1c is high enough that medicine may benefit me, even though I am technically not diabetic yet. I have read about diabetics who get their A1c below 5.5 with metformin, and there seem to be no adverse affects even when they continue taking the medicine at these levels. I am also having problems with ovulation and was recently diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia, a condition associated with insulin resistance. I have been struggling to conceive for three years now. Ultrasound shows no evidence ... ...

How are you doing? It is normal to experience side effects, when you first start taking a medication, because your body needs to get used to it. They will usually wear off after about 4 weeks or so, once your body adjusts.

I have some white oblong white tablets scored on one side and printed M525 on the other. I believe these are Ascend Labs Metformin HCL ER 500 mg tablets from a couple of months ago that I didnt finish up when I got my refill prescription. They also could be a different brand that the pharmacy used to fill my prescription. ## These tablets are manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 120mgs of Diltiazem. The FDA classifies this medication as a calcium channel blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I take this medication, but i am having trouble keeping my sugar down. It has been running high for a few weeks. The question is- can I take more Metformin to regulate my sugar. It is highest at night. I take 2 per day which is whatis prescribe. Can I also take one before I go to bed? ## Just add Fenfuro in your existing medicinal regime and feel the results within 3-6 months. ## I wouldn't suggest changing your medication, without first consulting your doctor. They are the ones who will best know how to help you with your problem. Another thing that you have to take in consideration is your diet, if you are still continuing to just eat whatever you want, including foods that contain high amounts of fats and sugars, you can't expect this medication to be able to completely contr... ...

Metformin 500mg Tab Sandoz?
1 Reply RSS
Are the metformin 500mg tab sandoz used to control high blood sugar? ## Hello, Based on my research, Metformin belongs to the class of medications called "oral hypoglycemics", which are medications that lower blood sugar. It is used to control blood glucose (blood sugar) for people with type 2 diabetes. It is used when diet, exercise, and weight reduction have not been found to lower blood glucose well enough on their own. Metformin works by reducing the amount of glucose made by the liver and by making it easier for glucose to enter into the tissues of the body. Metformin has been found to be especially useful in delaying problems associated with diabetes for overweight people with diabetes. NOTE: studies have proved that a low fat raw vegan diet can reverse and cure diabetes t... ...

I BELIEVE MY PREVIOUS BRAND NAME WAS EITHER SOLCO OR WATSON. ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHAT I SHOULD DO? ## Hello, Dooda! How are you doing? Has there been any change?

metformin withdrawal headache
1 Reply RSS
I was on Metformin for 25 years. Dr told me to stop using it switch to Gilpizide because I am 80 years old. Apparently it could take you out in that age group. Cold turkey, I had severe chills for a couple of days accompanied by muscle and joint pains and a headache. Day 10 was somewhat improved as far as chills go. I am hanging in there with the glipizide Dose that was doubled. But the glucose level is still high. DDose that was doubled edzide ## Experiencing withdrawal effects is normal when you stop a medication cold turkey, after being on it for so many years, according to the NIH. It is likely also coupled with side effects from starting the new one, so a kind of double whammy. The FDA lists the side effects of Glipizide as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pa... ...

Metformin tinnitus/hearing loss
2 Replies RSS
Doctor put me on Metformin, two days after I started experiencing severe stomach pain and tinnitus in one ear. Went to ER, told it was side effects of this drug. I stopped taking Metformin. The stomach pain stopped but I still after 7 days have the tinnitus in my ear. I have read several forums that talk about ringing in the ears while on this medication. I started taking B12 to see if that would help but nothing so far. Has anyone experienced hearing loss after or while taking Metformin? My doctor never told me of this side effect. I think it should be shown as a definite side effect of this drug. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Yes, those can be side effects of this medication, however, they can also be side effects of uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure, as reported by the NIH... ...

white,oval,48 on one side 93 on other side. Is not scored, made by Teva. Can I cut in half? I've not used this brand before.

I have been taking metformin 500 for a year is this a water pill? ## No, it is Not a water pill. Metformin, brand name Glucophage, is used to control high blood sugar. ## BL is correct, Metformin is not a water pill. It is a diabetic medication in the biguanide class that is indicated for the treatment of diabetes, type 2, polycystic ovary syndrome, female infertility, and insulin resistance syndrome.
