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?

after glycomet gp2 taken which time to take meal

GLYCOMET-GP2 should be taken before or after meals and how many min. before. ## Hello, Manian! How are you? This medication contains the active ingredients Metformin and Glimepiride, it is an oral antidiabetic medication that's used to help lower and control blood sugar levels. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Learn more Metformin details here. Learn more Glimepiride details here. And unless your doctor has instructed otherwise, they are usually taken just before you start eating a meal, that way they have time to start working by the time you are digesting your food, which is when you'd normally experience the most blood sugar changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I take fexofenaadine and glycomet go 2 toge...

What is the dose of Metformin and what other ingredients does it contain? ## The SG 105 pill contains 500 mg of Metformin. Inactive ingredients vary by manufacturer.

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...
