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.

Are there any differences between the RXP 500 and the M 500 Metformin pills besides one is bigger than the other? ## Hi Donna, From what I could gather, both medications contain 500mgs of Metformin. The only noticeable differences in my findings are found within the list of inactive ingredients.

For your own reference, the DIN (Drug Identificati...

Effects weight gain metformin

I weigh myself twice weekly, my scale tells me I have gained 4 pounds over a short period. I have been on Metformin 750 for over a year. My concern is this rapid gain. Can anyone tell me about their experience and what they found to keep weight stable. My diet includes fresh fruit , low carb vegetables, some whole grain bread, and whole wheat pasta. I noticed recently though snacking on nuts mixed in dried fruit. ## How rapidly have you gained weight? The NIH does warn that diabetes itself can cause weight changes, however there are other issues that could cause it, as well, such as high blood pressure, edema, or a heart condition. Thus, the safest thing to do would be to have this checked out by your medical provider, for your own safety. How much are you snacking? Some nuts can contai...

invokana can you break them
2 Replies RSS
Does anybody take invokana and break the pills? I know they are not time released but i dont know if its safe to break them. I have dysphagia and cant swallow. thanks ## Looking at images of the pill, I'd presume that the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the tablet's composition. So since it's not time-released my personal opinion is that it should be fine to divide it into smaller pieces. My reasoning is that this is what would begin to happen naturally anyways as the tablet is metabolized. Time-released meds are different in that regard, but I have no reason to believe that breaking apart an IR drug in such a manner would cause any issues; other than each piece perhaps not being absorbed at the same due to taking it with food - and in this scenario may affect ...

Long term use of Jardiance
27 Replies RSS
Well, I have been on Jardiance for 4 months now. I have lost 42 pounds. I have reduced meds. But I have to say, I am peeing every hour, and am fairly incontinent. I also have a funny ashy taste in my mouth. Is there anybody else out there on this stuff? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? I'm sorry about the side effects that you're experiencing. As listed by the FDA, Jardiance is used to treat type 2 diabetes and help boost weight loss. The increased urination is normal, that's how the medication eliminated the excess sugars from the body, other side effects may include nausea, hypotension, UTIs and hypoglycemia. What dosage are you on? You may need an adjustment, if it's pushing you to the point where you are experiencing incontinence. ## I go back to the doctor next week....

Where can I find dbx 13
3 Replies RSS
Where can I find this and what type of form is it in..? ## Hi CAW, From what I could gather, DBX-13 is said to be made up of 11 natural ingredients that are each shown to help fight diabetes (by balancing blood sugar levels) without many of the harsh side effects that prescription medications come with. However, the strange part is that I can't find any more information on it other than what is vaguely mentioned above; not even a list of ingredients. This makes me wonder if it's really legitimate or possibly some type of scam. Did you hear about it from a group called "Health Sciences Institute"? ## I think they just want for you to subscribe to the news letter and there is no such thing. What's commonly called false advertising. Should be a law against that. ## Ther...

DBX- 13 scam
208 Replies RSS
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...

3 Replies RSS
GLYCOMET-GP2 should be taken before or after meals and how many min. before. ## Hello, Manian! How are you? This medication contains the active ingredients Metformin and Glimepiride, it is an oral antidiabetic medication that's used to help lower and control blood sugar levels. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Learn more Metformin details here. Learn more Glimepiride details here. And unless your doctor has instructed otherwise, they are usually taken just before you start eating a meal, that way they have time to start working by the time you are digesting your food, which is when you'd normally experience the most blood sugar changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I take fexofenaadine and glycomet go 2 toge...
