I have read that you can have withdrawals from Metforman. I just sopped it abruptly and now have chronic muscle pain in my feet, arms, neck as well as carpal tunnel pain. I think we're supposed to wean off of it not just cold turkey it. Sorry you've been in pain...hope your feeling better!

I had last one 2 was ago. I read that it will take at least 1 month to get rid of it. Other diabetes meds cause the same symptoms too so who knows if it's other drugs along with it.

All meds have side effects. If this benzo is not good for you, try a different one...ask your doctor. Be careful of anxiety meds though, they have many side effects.
Your friend should also ask his doc about high sugars & maybe a new med...there are many to choose from. I am on insulin as well and it works for me after so many years of high sugars.
Wish you both luck...it's not easy trying to stay healthy!

I'm glad you are off the benzo. My friend just passed away from liver failure due to being on Xanax which is the same type of drug! You cannot have a drink with those meds not even social drink!
So be glad you're not taking them anymore....they're addictive also!
As for your friend, the glipizide should be ok, if not maybe take that and another med...they have many and sometimes you can take two types together to keep the sugar in check.

Sorry about ur friend. Mine were bromazepam, valium, xanax only small amount of xanax. What stage of withdrawal did she die? My Dr rings me every Wednesday morning. She monitors my condition regularly. I had all tests still going stiff and nasal sleeping fairly good. Appetite good, right through itchy prickly and back last week. Getting there then weight comes off. Yeah my friend got the shakes, his Dr checks him too. His Dr said it settles down. What are metformin side effects did it leave u with?

My friend died from the side effects she didn't try to quit it. I'm glad to hear your doctor is watching out for you....And that's why she is getting you off the med. Your friend will do ok on insulin...better sugar control. My side effects with Metforman were joint pain, muscle aches, nausea,feeling cold all the time....never feeling rested, always tired.

He'll be fine on insulin. Keep his sugars in check and he'll have minimal effects from diabetes. And you'll have a happy life together.... Congratulations on getting married soon!

Kathy Says:

Glipizide causes bleeding in bowel and cramps or muscle aches...his doctor should know this is the side effects. Bleeding from the bowel is VERY scary and you should take him to another doctor if this doctor cannot help heal it!
Now I am worried for your friend!
