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...

Glycomet Gp2 Side Effects

My sugar level has suddenly gone up to more than 400. After taking metformin 500mg 3 tablets a day, still it does not go down below 200. So I tried glycomet GP2 two tablets per day.

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?

When I get my Metformin script filled in CVS in NY it's a different pill than when I get it filled in Florida CVS. Both are apparently Metformin but since they are from different manufacturers is the efficacy the same? ## Hello, Lolalulu! How are you? Yes, any prescription medication that's available from your pharmacy in the U.S. has had to pass the same strict quality and efficacy standards, it applies uniformly to all generic manufactures. Is there anything else I can help with? ## They don't check every batch of metformin coming into the country so who knows what the heck you are getting in these generic pills....

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...

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...
