I have ulcerative colitus and now have been given Metformin 500mg to lower my glucose readings. Since starting the Metformin I have had very loose bowel movements. Should I stop the Metformin? Thanks ## Letting your blood sugar levels continue out of control can cause far more serious complications than diarrhea. How long have you been taking the Metformin?

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg Side Effects
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... ...

Metformin Hcl 500mg Tab Side Effects
I was recently switched from Glyburid-Metformin to Metformin HCL 500 MG - I have been experiencing frequent migrane headaches (daily) and have put on over 5 lbs in 2 weeks. Also my blood sugar numbers are higher especially in the morning. Only benefit is that there have been no more low readings. ## Have you consulted your doctor? Suddenly stopping any medication that you've been taking for a long period of time may result in some withdrawal and rebound effects, which may explain your symptoms, but you should talk to your doctor about it, to be certain. Has there been any improvement, yet? ## I switched back two days ago. Headaches still happening but not nearly as severe. Low sugar reading happened once. ...

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg does it +up to 1000er
Is two 500 hcl metformin the same as 1000 er ## Hi tam, Not entirely. While the dosage certainly adds up to 1000mg, there is still a big difference between immediate release formulas and extended (time-released) formulas. The time-released tablets are more geared towards 24 hour - around the clock pain relief; while the standard immediate release tabs are said to be more ideal for short term pain management patients. Whether you take 500mg or 1000mg of Metformin, the time-release effect will always outlast the immediate release effect in terms of longer pain relief (although some patients claim the immediate release formula to have a stronger effect, since it hits you all at once, per say). I hope this explanation helps! ## Only if they are also time released, since you listed ER by the... ...

The addition of the Glyburide may not be safe for you, or it may cause your blood sugar to go too low. Learn more Glyburide details here and you can learn more Metformin details here.
