    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I occasionally had calf cramps that I did not associate with metformin. Yesterday, the muscles hardened in calves and thighs, the pain lasted 2 days. A muscle group in the left calf is still hard and cramps for a few minutes when getting up. My neck muscles are still hurting. I puked in pain and I was so dizzy that I fell over. I could barely breathe I also had unbearable stomach ache and my kidney area hurt a lot, also laterally in the back I was in pain and hardly got any air. I also did not see properly and had difficulty swallowing. I was so exhausted that I did not want to live anymore

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Hello, I’m 64 years old, pensioner and have a short time diabetes type 2. I have metformin 500 each morning and one tablet each morning. My doctor referred me to the specialist who prescribed me Velmetia 50mg / 850mg. In the opinion of the specialist I should take 1 Velmetia in the morning and Metformin in the evening in combination. But got on the day of the proposed insertion difficulties. Heart problems, wet hands, flicker in front of the eyes and short drowsiness. But I have to say that I use an overnight device for sleep apnea that probably causes difficulties. If I remove the device, the nausea diminishes. I now dare not take Velmetia, although Velmetia also contains the active substance metformin? Who can help me here?????

    Metformin for Depression; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Cipralex: The first two weeks no side effect (slowly increased), but quickly felt better (inwardly stable and robust). Ok, some constipation and abdominal twitching, v.a. at night. In the third week now more often nausea, v.a. at night (take a tablet of 10 mg in the morning!) and tonight even a circulatory collapse with extreeeemer nausea and very high body temperature. Strong pain in feet and hands. In addition, dizziness, not good at driving … Have really only little appetite. Metformin: increased slowly: In addition to flatulence (for months) no side effects, but depends on nutrition: If you eat low-fat and meatless, you can tolerate it very well. Always start small and slowly increase the dose. Effect: at the beginning clearly (more energy), meanwhile again very tired and thirsty all the time. You also have to follow the sugar-free diet, otherwise it will not work. Aspirin100: Wow! No more headaches every day, almost no more regular pain !! Incredible!! Great!
