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...

How are you doing? I'm very glad that this medication is working so well for you. Are you still getting such great results? Have had any side effects? Has anyone else tried this?

Just wanted to share what I could. I started taking Invokana a month ago. You are supposed to start with 100mg for the first month and then 300mg there after.

Metformin (Glycomet) 500 mg dosage adjustment

I am a 74-year-old male. I have had type 2 diabetes since the year 2012 and I have been taking Glycomet from the very beginning. I first started off slow with 250 mg twice a day, then went to 500 mg twice a day. One after lunch and one after dinner. As of late when I am taking 500 mg after breakfast, after two hours or so I am finding that I am experiencing mild hypoglycemia. Hence my doctor (brother) suggested me to take 250 mg after breakfast, 500 mg after lunch and 250 mg after dinner. That is dividing the same 1000 mg per day into three dosages. 250/500/250 per day. Is it a good proposition? He says that if I'm eating a small portion of food for breakfast, a little bit at lunch and a small amount of food at dinner time, these dosages will take care of the glucose levels. Is it t...

Unsure if my Metformin tablets are real

I picked up my rx metformin from a pharmacy with my prescription but got metfortic 500 instead. Can anyone tell if this is fake or real? ## Hi Taz, If you picked these up from a licensed pharmacy with a valid prescription, then yes, they are real. However, being "real" does not necessarily equate to something being "effective", and often times patients who receive a lesser effective medication are quick to call it fake or counterfeit, when in reality it may just be certain fillers that inhibit optimal bioavailability. Nevertheless, if something doesn't seem right about your prescription then you should contact the pharmacy you got it filled at just to be on the safe side. "Metfortic 500" is something I've never heard of (nor can I find info on Google - so...

Pill given by pharmacy changed from Metformin 500 er tablet marked 93 to tablet marked 142. What is the difference between the two?

difference between reclide xr 60 and mclazide m

Dr has recently prescribed reclide xr 60 for my mother, earlier she was using Mclazide M, i want to what is the difference between these two? ## To answer your question, Reclide tablets contain the active ingredient Gliclazide extended release. The difference is that Mclazide-M is not extended release, and it contains the active ingredient Gliclazide (80mg) as well as Metformin (500mg), for increased efficacy. So while both medications are antidiabetic agents, one lasts longer and the other is stronger.

Reaction to Metformin in elderly patients

My husband had been on Metformin for 20 years....became exhausted, couldn't think, & could barely move. He's on insulin now and feels better. ## Hello Jerry, I'm glad that your husband is on the mend. Did your husbands doctor state that the medication is what was causing him to be ill or was it that he needed insulin? I'm curious because I wasn't able to find any case studies that mention anything about causing issues to the bodies ability to produce insulin. I hope you have a wonderful day.
