I have been taking Mosegor to gain weight. I havwe also realised that though am gaining water my stomach is also becoming quite big. Scondly I want to know if there is any side effect associated for taking mosegor.

FDA Approval of Metanx

Is it FDA approved? My prescription plan stopped paying and the reason was it was not FDA approved at that time. Since I stopped taking Metanx my circulation is not that good and I want to restart. ## Spoke to FDA approval is not required as Metanx falls under a food supplement. It is not a drug it's a combination of vitamins and folic acid. It is monitored but it does require a prescription. ## That is correct, Metanx is considered a medical food, not a drug, so it is registered with the FDA, but not approved by them. It is basically a nutritional supplement that is formulated to help meet the nutritional needs of people with diabetic nerve damage. Given the expense, if they are no longer covering it for you, it might be best to ask your doctor about trying other alternatives, if t...

Invocana, Victosa and Basaglar negative reactions

I am a type 2 diabetic and I'm taking other diabetic meds along with Invocana. I'm taking other meds, such as Basaglar, and Victosa. Do these drugs interact negatively with the other diabetic drugs I'm taking? ## Hello Ladd, I was able to find 2 interactions between the medicines you listed. I have put both of them below. Basaglar (insulin glargine) -> Victoza (liraglutide) Using liraglutide together with insulin glargine can increase the risk of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Let your doctor know if you experience hypoglycemia during treatment.

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...

Metformin 850mg Side Effects

Can metformin 850 mg can cause a loss in weight of the diabetic? Thanks ## I've been diabetic since 2000 and have been controlling it by diet, but after 6 yrs it is not in control so i started metformin 500 x 2 daily. But after, in 2010 my sugar was staying too high so i was prescribed janumet which caused me to gain 5kgs in a year. Plus my feet hurt a lot and I'm feeling very weak. Please help me. ## Sandy, many type 2 diabetics tend to have gained weight from the diabetes, then they will lose some once they start getting it under control, such as by using the medication. However, if it's a severe weight loss, then you should seek medical attention to have it checked out. Rozy, how have your blood sugar levels been recently? Are you also continuing to watch what you eat? ##...

Is it legal to test a patient for alcohol misuse without telling them?

I moved to a new state and noticed on my bill that he doctor had tested for alcohol misuse. Is this legal? ## You signed papers giving the dr permission to test and treat you. So yes it is legal. You may not remember signing these papers because they are all together with the new patient forms when you see a dr for the first time. Even if you started seeing this drs yrs ago the permission to treat forms don't expire. ## Doctors do whatever they want. They gave millions of addictive meds like candy for years and NOW they just take 'em away. You hear all about these "addicts" but never about the responsibility of the doctors who made this happen...? Why? I'd like to take all these doctors, give them 2 months worth of "opioids"(GOD I'M SICK OF HEARING THAT W...

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...

Metanx - ingredients

I want to know what is in this medicine, the amount of each ingredient- how much more than an over the counter drug. ## Please explain what is in this medicine and also is vitamin C and B12 over the counter just as good. Thank you ## I just started this metanx a little over a week now. I was given a pamphlet on it. It states that metanx contains the active ingredients of folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 which allow the body to absorb them without having to break them down first like you would have to do with OTC vitamins. It is only available with a prescription and you take two of the pills a day.

dewitt pills for bed wetting

To stop bed wetting if a 16 yr.old child. ## Hello, Anna! How are you? I'm sorry about the issue your child is having. Dewitt pills are no longer being manufactured. Additionally, since the child is 16, there might be medical reasons for it, so the best thing to do would be to consult a doctor. Undiagnosed conditions, such as diabetes as well as several others, could be the cause of such an issue. Is the child on any medications? ## My daughter is 20 years and still urinating in bed. What medication can I use to stop this?
