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...

Janumet side effects

I started Janumet since then I have been having vaginal soreness not burning sore like from being very dry ## I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I couldn't find anything listed about Janumet causing this type of side effect, but there's no way to know how any medication is going to affect anyone that tries it, since everyone is different. Learn more Janumet details here. Have you consulted your doctor? It could also be due to a hormonal imbalance, which can happen in women at any age. ## Wondering if the side effects of Janumet (slow release) are to blame for patches of alopecia on the hairline? Also diarrhea every day after taking the tablet at breakfast? Thank you.

Metformin tinnitus/hearing loss

Doctor put me on Metformin, two days after I started experiencing severe stomach pain and tinnitus in one ear. Went to ER, told it was side effects of this drug. I stopped taking Metformin. The stomach pain stopped but I still after 7 days have the tinnitus in my ear. I have read several forums that talk about ringing in the ears while on this medication. I started taking B12 to see if that would help but nothing so far. Has anyone experienced hearing loss after or while taking Metformin? My doctor never told me of this side effect. I think it should be shown as a definite side effect of this drug. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Yes, those can be side effects of this medication, however, they can also be side effects of uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure, as reported by the NIH...

[country of origin for] METFORMIN HCL 500MG tablet SOLCO 43547 0248 50

What is the country of origin for METFORMIN HCL 500MG tablet SOLCO 43547-0248-50? Is it approved by American standards of manufacturing? My pharmacy, in the last year, no longer has Metformin HCL in its warehouse - too expensive, I understand. Therefore I am unable to get my prescription filled there. My problem is that I cannot - literally - stomach any other manufacturer's inactive ingredients. The diarrhea is continuous - all day long, and into the night. I'm drinking as much water as I can to prevent dehydration, but it comes out as fast as I can get it in. My pharmacy seems not to care whether or not I get the SOLCO manufactured medicine. They are going to begin using THEIR medicine of choice, regardless of what it does to my intestinal tract. Their attitude is: "SO WHA...

Common listed side effects include: nausea, headache and constipation, but I have no idea if these would be the same for dogs. You can read more about the medication here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## She asked about sucralsate You answered about sucralfate? No indication it’s the same drug!!

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...
