Can Metformin cause seizures if dose is doubled?

My niece says a dr. told her she might have a seizure from taking 2 metformin by mistake. Is this true? ## It is possible, but not a common occurrence, whether or not a seizure occurs may depend on other factors, as well, such as how low a person's blood sugar drops, other medical conditions they may have, and other medications they may be taking. Typical side effects, according to the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, hypoglycemia, and increased urination. It is, however, always best to be careful not to double up on your medications. Is she taking anything else?

GLYCOMET-GP2 should be taken before or after meals and how many min. before. ## Hello, Manian! How are you?

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Learn more Metformin details here. Learn more Glimepiride details here.

Gynovit syrup uses

I had no periods for the last 2 months so my doctor prescribed gynovit syrup. What is the use of it? Can it be taken along with metformin tablets also? ## From what I could gather, Grovit syrup is simply a multivitamin supplement for use in treating vitamin deficiency states as well as increased vitamin demands for pregnancy, lactation, growing children, and even severe infections. The Active ingredients in Grovit syrup are: Vitamin A (palmitate) + Vitamin B complex + Vitamin C + Vitamin D + Vitamin E Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Metformin and Vitamins. So in my honest opinion, you should be fine taking the two together. I hope this helps! ## Should we take gynovit syrup before or after food ## You have to take 10ml trice a day before food.. ## Whe...

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 recalls

What is the protocol for warning patients, pharmacists, etc. in the event a medication is causing adverse effects? Do we have to await for the ambulance chasers TV commercials warning us of legal suits or is there an entity policing the prescription/consumer industry? ## What I am referring to above are the apparent side effects related to the "uncontrolled or unmonitored" fillers used in the manufacture of generic drugs like Metformin. Is there anyone monitoring these generic drugs as to what is being added to them? What is the regulated purity rates / ratios that the manufacturers should be held to? Where could I take my metformin to get evaluated to find out why it made me so physically ill? And doubled my bg readings from @ 90 to 190? Does this pill evaluation need to come f...

Does Metformin from different manufacturers have the same efficacy?

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...
