    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    My endocrinologist prescribed metformin for insulin resistance. The first 2 days I had about 2 hours after taking to fight with latent nausea. The first 4 weeks when creeping in and then another 2 weeks after a dose increase, I had a bloating stomach. So far I did not know that, reminded me very much of a symptom of pancreatitis. I felt limp, had a sore stomach and was exhausted after the slightest stress (climbing stairs, shopping). After about 5-6 weeks my liver values (g-GT), which are already increased from 193 (norm 6-42) to 232, after 6 more weeks the g-GT was at 497! That was when my doctor and I unanimously decided to drop off Metformin again. As a side effect, we hoped that I would lose some weight, but unfortunately this has not been confirmed, on the contrary, I got after about 8 weeks more bingeing (I have an eating disorder) than before, so that 7 kg, which I had painstakingly removed had again been very fast on it. Nevertheless, I would recommend it to try, because there are many who have made good experiences with it.

    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!

    Since taking Metformin, I am often sick to the point of nausea. My stomach is bloated and hard. With me, no diarrhea occurs, but rather constipation. When I eat, usually no comforting feeling of satiety occurs. I always have a latent feeling of hunger but no appetite at the same time. I am constantly tired and tired. I’m looking for an alternative.

    Side effects: Constipation; Fatigue; Nausea

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Starting visual disturbance, blurred vision; Weight gain well 35Kg in the 5 years; Impotence and constantly tired, as well as mad pain in the large joints, especially the knee joints. Every way is too far and hurts. Enormous water retention in the lower legs. Sleep disorders; If it takes a long time to sleep at most 2 hours at a time and erectile dysfunction. On the whole side effects only become aware of through conversations with other patients, only then / now only read the leaflet. The treating diabetologist did not notice anything during the whole time. New doctor’s appointment is already, then he has to come up with something. I’m so sorry! Actually, I could have read the note from Actos 45 right away, but I followed the doctor’s instructions and took it nicely. Never again!

    Metformin for Depression

    My mood is more balanced overall with the Abilify and the other medications in combination. I only cry very little and stay calm in all situations. The quality of my sleep at night is also improved. In conclusion; it helps and stabilizes me enough to finally be able to shape my normal everyday life. However, there are side effects that are unfortunately not always so pleasant for me.

    Side effects: Unrest; Muscle aches; Fatigue

    Metformin for Polycystic ovaries; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have been taking metformin for 16 days now. In the first week I started with 1 x 500, now I take 1 x 1000 and from next week I should increase to 1 x 1500. I’ve been having flatulence and diarrhea since then. Since the increase to 1000 comes tremendous nausea feeling and crazy sweats as in women with menopause added. That makes me crazy. Besides, I’m just tired and always exhausted. Is that normal? I would like to stop it, because without metformin I feel better.

    Side effects: Sweats; Fatigue; Flatulence; Diarrhea
