metformin smell
114 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...

side effects - possible drug interactions ## This medication is commonly used to treat diabetes, and PCOS/PCOD. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, flatulence, and low blood sugar. As to the possible interactions, there are far too many for me to list. Are there any other medications that you take regularly? If so, if you post back with them, I will be glad to check for you.
