I have been taking Mosegor to gain weight. I havwe also realised that though am gaining water my stomach is also becoming quite big. Scondly I want to know if there is any side effect associated for taking mosegor.

Metformin 850mg Side Effects

Can metformin 850 mg can cause a loss in weight of the diabetic? Thanks ## I've been diabetic since 2000 and have been controlling it by diet, but after 6 yrs it is not in control so i started metformin 500 x 2 daily. But after, in 2010 my sugar was staying too high so i was prescribed janumet which caused me to gain 5kgs in a year. Plus my feet hurt a lot and I'm feeling very weak. Please help me. ## Sandy, many type 2 diabetics tend to have gained weight from the diabetes, then they will lose some once they start getting it under control, such as by using the medication. However, if it's a severe weight loss, then you should seek medical attention to have it checked out. Rozy, how have your blood sugar levels been recently? Are you also continuing to watch what you eat? ##...

Is it legal to test a patient for alcohol misuse without telling them?

I moved to a new state and noticed on my bill that he doctor had tested for alcohol misuse. Is this legal? ## You signed papers giving the dr permission to test and treat you. So yes it is legal. You may not remember signing these papers because they are all together with the new patient forms when you see a dr for the first time. Even if you started seeing this drs yrs ago the permission to treat forms don't expire. ## Doctors do whatever they want. They gave millions of addictive meds like candy for years and NOW they just take 'em away. You hear all about these "addicts" but never about the responsibility of the doctors who made this happen...? Why? I'd like to take all these doctors, give them 2 months worth of "opioids"(GOD I'M SICK OF HEARING THAT W...

metformin smell

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...

Metanx - ingredients

I want to know what is in this medicine, the amount of each ingredient- how much more than an over the counter drug. ## Please explain what is in this medicine and also is vitamin C and B12 over the counter just as good. Thank you ## I just started this metanx a little over a week now. I was given a pamphlet on it. It states that metanx contains the active ingredients of folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 which allow the body to absorb them without having to break them down first like you would have to do with OTC vitamins. It is only available with a prescription and you take two of the pills a day.
