Gemer 1 & Gemer 2

I am taking "GEMER 1" Tablets, as I am diaognised as "TYPE 2 Diabetes Patient", but its been now almost 10 Months & I feel very lazy at times during the day or night & my both legs pains. I take one tablet in the morning before Breakfast & one tablet in the night. Want your advise if I am taking the right medicine as priscribed by my Doctor or should I change my medication or should I increase my dosage.

Now as my stock of Gemer 1 has come, so I am again taking "GEMER 1". ## What has your doctor said about your going back to the Gemer 1 and about your other symptoms? What have your blood sugar l...

How do I use Apple Cider Vinegar for weight loss?

What is I the correct way to take apple cider vinegar for weight loss? I've heard a couple of tablespoons in water before a meal... Is that once a day before dinner or more times a day? Also, I quite often use Optislim shakes for the smaller meals during the day. I am also starting to try Garcinia. How is the best way to use these for maximum effectiveness?? ## Hello Lauralee, Ironically this was a rumor that I heard once upon a time and I spent a large amount of time doing research trying to verify the claim. What I found was that there is little to no scientific data supporting the theory that taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before each meal helps with weight loss. However, in the case studies that I have found it shows that there is no clear indication among the divers...

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? ##...

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...

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 (Glycomet) 500 mg dosage adjustment

I am a 74-year-old male. I have had type 2 diabetes since the year 2012 and I have been taking Glycomet from the very beginning. I first started off slow with 250 mg twice a day, then went to 500 mg twice a day. One after lunch and one after dinner. As of late when I am taking 500 mg after breakfast, after two hours or so I am finding that I am experiencing mild hypoglycemia. Hence my doctor (brother) suggested me to take 250 mg after breakfast, 500 mg after lunch and 250 mg after dinner. That is dividing the same 1000 mg per day into three dosages. 250/500/250 per day. Is it a good proposition? He says that if I'm eating a small portion of food for breakfast, a little bit at lunch and a small amount of food at dinner time, these dosages will take care of the glucose levels. Is it t...

Unsure if my Metformin tablets are real

I picked up my rx metformin from a pharmacy with my prescription but got metfortic 500 instead. Can anyone tell if this is fake or real? ## Hi Taz, If you picked these up from a licensed pharmacy with a valid prescription, then yes, they are real. However, being "real" does not necessarily equate to something being "effective", and often times patients who receive a lesser effective medication are quick to call it fake or counterfeit, when in reality it may just be certain fillers that inhibit optimal bioavailability. Nevertheless, if something doesn't seem right about your prescription then you should contact the pharmacy you got it filled at just to be on the safe side. "Metfortic 500" is something I've never heard of (nor can I find info on Google - so...

Metformin 142 vs 93

Pill given by pharmacy changed from Metformin 500 er tablet marked 93 to tablet marked 142. What is the difference between the two? Different side effects? ## The only difference between the two Metformin pills are within the list of "inactive" ingredients (also referred to as binders/fillers) that help make up the composition of the pill. Certain inactive ingredients may affect bioavailability or how well the active ingredient(s) are absorbed. Some people may also be more or less sensitive to different inactive ingredients and that could affect one's perception of how well it works.

difference between reclide xr 60 and mclazide m

Dr has recently prescribed reclide xr 60 for my mother, earlier she was using Mclazide M, i want to what is the difference between these two? ## To answer your question, Reclide tablets contain the active ingredient Gliclazide extended release. The difference is that Mclazide-M is not extended release, and it contains the active ingredient Gliclazide (80mg) as well as Metformin (500mg), for increased efficacy. So while both medications are antidiabetic agents, one lasts longer and the other is stronger.

Reaction to Metformin in elderly patients

My husband had been on Metformin for 20 years....became exhausted, couldn't think, & could barely move. He's on insulin now and feels better. ## Hello Jerry, I'm glad that your husband is on the mend. Did your husbands doctor state that the medication is what was causing him to be ill or was it that he needed insulin? I'm curious because I wasn't able to find any case studies that mention anything about causing issues to the bodies ability to produce insulin. I hope you have a wonderful day.

White round pill RXP 500

Is auro-metformin blackberry 500mg the same pill as RXP 500mg metformin, just flavored with blackberry? ## Hello Betty, The Auropharma manufacturers page only shows the ingredients for the 500mg metformin and does not list the inactive ingredients. This leads me to believe that the two are the same but one is simply given a blackberry flavoring for those that do not like the medicines bitter taste. Below are the active ingredients. • Crospovidone • Magnesium stearate • Polyethyleneglycol 3350 • Polyvinyl alcohol • Povidone • Talc • Titanium dioxide I hope this helps.
