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.

The most appropriate time to take Victoza

I have started on Victoza for the last couple of weeks, and have noticed the difference in my appetite etc which is actually very exciting for someone who has always overeaten. One question though, I've been told to take it in the morning by my GP, however my "problem" time for overeating is after 8pm at night. I've noticed may take it with their evening meal. Would this have a better effect on my late eavening eating?

I have had irregular period since the very beginning. Diagnosed with pcos couple of years back. I am now 29 and dying to conceive. Problem is my partner is not very cooperative as he keeps withdrawing. Im currently on glucophage & primolut-n. Is there any meds I can take to increase my chances of conceiving with pretty less semen? :( ## To be honest, if you're partner doesn't want to have a child, at this time, forcing one on them is a very bad and irresponsible idea. If having a child right now is important to you, then you should seek a partner who is also ready for it. Has he said why he isn't ready? ## ????I was in severe depression before I contacted Dr Vipul Sharma. A sense of inferiority had seeped into my life due to prolonged infertility and amenorrhea.

PGP marked large White Oblong Caplet/Pill

Found two of these in sons pocket, what are they? ## Hi jean, The research I've done leads me to believe that the pill you have is not a prescription medication, but could likely be an illicit drug such as ecstasy. It could also be a medication manufactured outside the United States, or possibly an over the counter product, but it has been difficult to verify 100%. The pill I have been seeing is a white round pill with the imprint PGP; but apparently there are varieties that come as a white capsule. If you cannot have it analyzed then I would recommend that you safely dispose of it. I hope this helps! ## what a load of bollox jean you haven't a clue.I have these in my pill box (I'm 74yrs old) these pills are either head ache pills or Diabetes pills trouble is i can't rem...

White round pill RXP 500

Is auro-metformin blackberry 500mg the same pill as RXP 500mg metformin, just flavored with blackberry? ## Hello Betty, The Auropharma manufacturers page only shows the ingredients for the 500mg metformin and does not list the inactive ingredients. This leads me to believe that the two are the same but one is simply given a blackberry flavoring for those that do not like the medicines bitter taste. Below are the active ingredients. • Crospovidone • Magnesium stearate • Polyethyleneglycol 3350 • Polyvinyl alcohol • Povidone • Talc • Titanium dioxide I hope this helps.
