Glycomet 1 gm or Glycomet 1Gm (XR/SR) - Difference

I am now taking GLIZID 80 mg two tabs twice a day and Glycoment 850mg one tab twice a day plus Acarbose 50 mg twice a day. Now doctor advises me to take Glycomet 1gm in place of Glycomet 850gm .

Updated in Metformin

Hi I take 25mgs of Jardiance after my breakfast and 2000 mg after dinner. Because of having to visit the bathroom much more with the Jardiance in the mornings, could I take it after my evening meal and the Metformin after my breakfast?

Can Metformin cause seizures if dose is doubled?

My niece says a dr. told her she might have a seizure from taking 2 metformin by mistake. Is this true? ## It is possible, but not a common occurrence, whether or not a seizure occurs may depend on other factors, as well, such as how low a person's blood sugar drops, other medical conditions they may have, and other medications they may be taking. Typical side effects, according to the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, hypoglycemia, and increased urination. It is, however, always best to be careful not to double up on your medications. Is she taking anything else?

White round pill with black type number 4

Pill is worn, can only make out the last number which is 4. there appears to be a couple characters/numbers before the 4. Can not make out anything on reverse side. no imprints or scores. only the black type number/lettering. ## It's rather hard, without knowing the complete imprint, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## It's white round with a black 4 on it ## Hmmm, seems likely to be a Glipizide tablet manufactured by Zydus (NDC 68382-0337). Does it look like the following image?

Long term use of Jardiance

Well, I have been on Jardiance for 4 months now. I have lost 42 pounds. I have reduced meds. But I have to say, I am peeing every hour, and am fairly incontinent. I also have a funny ashy taste in my mouth. Is there anybody else out there on this stuff? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? I'm sorry about the side effects that you're experiencing. As listed by the FDA, Jardiance is used to treat type 2 diabetes and help boost weight loss. The increased urination is normal, that's how the medication eliminated the excess sugars from the body, other side effects may include nausea, hypotension, UTIs and hypoglycemia. What dosage are you on? You may need an adjustment, if it's pushing you to the point where you are experiencing incontinence. ## I go back to the doctor next week....

My primary Dr. Prescribed Metanx for my nerve pain from ankle fusion surgery.I've taken it for 30 days and haven't noticed any relief.will this work and if so how long before effective? ## Hello, Marsha! How are you? Metanx is classified by the FDA as a medical food that supports nerve health. However, what that means is that it won't actually relieve pain. Its typical side effect is usually just nausea, due to the potency. Have you informed your doctor that it isn't helping? You will most likely need a medication that will actually help with nerve pain. ## What state do you live in? I have found HYBRID-X cannabis oil, in a syringe, (ruce grain dose) into a veg-capsule, is the bullet for ANY nerve damage or pain. I lalready tried Pensaid patches and Gabapentin. The patch...
