Can I take this tablet in the evening so I can sleep away the nausea. I didnt have to run to the toilet alot but it may change as I continue/ ## Hi Im curious about taking at night as well,, how is it working out for you.? ## Hello Karen, According to the manufacturer's directions Jardiance is to be taken first thing in the morning with or without food. My research has found that this is primarily due to the way that our bodies handle insulin after a long resting periods without eating. When my wife was diagnosed with gestational diabetes she was instructed to eat foods at very particular intervals and take her medication withi...

Gynovit syrup uses

I had no periods for the last 2 months so my doctor prescribed gynovit syrup. What is the use of it? Can it be taken along with metformin tablets also? ## From what I could gather, Grovit syrup is simply a multivitamin supplement for use in treating vitamin deficiency states as well as increased vitamin demands for pregnancy, lactation, growing children, and even severe infections. The Active ingredients in Grovit syrup are: Vitamin A (palmitate) + Vitamin B complex + Vitamin C + Vitamin D + Vitamin E Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Metformin and Vitamins. So in my honest opinion, you should be fine taking the two together. I hope this helps! ## Should we take gynovit syrup before or after food ## You have to take 10ml trice a day before food.. ## Whe...

syntra 5 availability

Is it available in the U.K.? If so where can I find it? ## Where in the UK can I buy syntra-5 or dbx-13? It is supposed to be a cure for type 2 diabetes. ## I want to buy Syntra5, but not from America. Where else is it available? I see the question but not the answer. ## I am interested in finding out about the availability of Syntra-5. I tried to buy it from America but unfortunately was not able to. ## I'm trying to buy Syntra-5 in the UK. Does anyone know about its availability?

DBX-13 scam

In January 2013 - I recently purchased a subscription to the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) newsletter and got the book "Miracles from the Vault." I scoured the pages to find DBX-13 which they advertised as the diabetes miracle cure, and couldn't find it anywhere. I called HSI, and after three attempts and by threatening to take them to court for false advertising, a response finally came by email. DBX-13 is called X-Cravings. But get this... it is no longer being manufactured. X-Cravings appears to be a formula to help you stop craving food... a diet product... and I guess they apparently felt this would help you lose weight which would help your diabetes. I placed a call to the manufacturer of X-Cravings, Nutricology. Tel: (800)545-9960 who claims they don't know that...

Victoza shot placement

Im a new user. What happens if the shot isn't placed in fat? I have lots of belly fat so I don't see how I could miss a fat spot. Is the stomach muscles below or above the fat? Can the shot go to deep with long needle or to shallow with short needle? Using long needle I get real sleepy and don't feel like eating. Using the short needle I feel normal. ## Have you checked your blood sugar at the times you feel sleepy, and don't want to eat? That would be the best thing to do, it would help you discover why you may be feeling that way. The typical side effects of Victoza may include injection site irritation, redness, bleeding, hypoglycemia, and headache. Why are you getting different length needles?

metformin recalls

What is the protocol for warning patients, pharmacists, etc. in the event a medication is causing adverse effects? Do we have to await for the ambulance chasers TV commercials warning us of legal suits or is there an entity policing the prescription/consumer industry? ## What I am referring to above are the apparent side effects related to the "uncontrolled or unmonitored" fillers used in the manufacture of generic drugs like Metformin. Is there anyone monitoring these generic drugs as to what is being added to them? What is the regulated purity rates / ratios that the manufacturers should be held to? Where could I take my metformin to get evaluated to find out why it made me so physically ill? And doubled my bg readings from @ 90 to 190? Does this pill evaluation need to come f...

side effects of glb/metform

I have been taking this medication for two years. I'm a vegetarian and the 500mg is too strong. It's makes me dizzy. Therfore, I cut it up in four pieces. I asked my doctor to lower the mg but he refuses. My blood sugar reading is excellent. Should I continue to take this medication? ## Dizziness can be a normal side effect of Glyburide with Metformin, along with nausea, headache, and hypoglycemia. You should continue to take it, until your doctor says otherwise, because it could be the only thing keeping your sugar levels at excellent readings. If you aren't sure, however, you are always free to see another doctor for a second opinion. Do you make sure to take it, when eating?

Does Metformin from different manufacturers have the same efficacy?

When I get my Metformin script filled in CVS in NY it's a different pill than when I get it filled in Florida CVS. Both are apparently Metformin but since they are from different manufacturers is the efficacy the same? ## Hello, Lolalulu! How are you? Yes, any prescription medication that's available from your pharmacy in the U.S. has had to pass the same strict quality and efficacy standards, it applies uniformly to all generic manufactures.

Metanx Over The Counter

Is "over the counter" Metanx as effective as the prescription version? ## Hi Lynn, Based on my research, Metanx is a combination of Folic acid (3 mg), B 6 (35 mg), and B 12 (2 mg). I don't think that it would be any less effective as long as the dosage is the same as what a doctor would prescribe. The only thing that might be different is the manufacturer- but that shouldn't have any major effect on the supplement other than the types of "inactive" ingredients used. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Metanx Details I hope this helps! ## I'm traveling to India in the near future. Can I buy Metanx capsules in India at retail price? If so, does it require a prescription or where I can buy in bulk prices over-the-counter? Thanks.
