    Metformin for Kinderwunsch-treatment; Polycystic ovaries

    I take 2xtägl. 850 mg metformin, because of PCO and irregular cycles. I have no insulin resistance, I am normal weight and take metformin mainly because of having children. The cycle got off to a good start in just a few weeks and became pregnant in the third metformin cycle. I had side effects like diarrhea and nausea at the beginning quite often, now and then, but I can handle that.

    Side effects: Nausea; Diarrhea

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    A transfer of my general practitioner to the Diabetologische focused practice brought a new drug setting within the ICT and me in 2008 for the first time with Actos 15 in contact. At the same time, the accompanying medication was adjusted to Metformin 500, later to Metformin 1000. Almost parallel, there was an inexplicable nausea, which even brought me out of bed once every night and into the bathroom in anticipation of a nausea that never came. I have even had this examined once with a gastroscopy, of course, without findings. However, the insulin resistance decreased very slowly – it turned a long-term (!?) A more stable blood sugar levels. Until then, however, changed the indication of Actos 15 on Actos 30 to Actos 45 for a once-a-day single dose. In the meantime, slight edema in the legs had developed, which I ascribed in advance to the phlebitis, which had already been treated surgically before the onset of diabetes. However, a newly developed compensatory vein for the previously drawn has apparently not formed. The skin on the legs, after being burnt for years, became increasingly glassy, i.e., hard and extremely sensitive. Now she was additionally stretched from the inside by water retention and, of course, minor injuries due to diabetes healed much more slowly. In addition, I hardly ever fit a pair of shoes. The new HA simply prescribed a dehydrating drug (HCT) and increased the dose to 25mg twice daily, although it is warned against long term use. He came to my presumed coronary insufficiency with the prescription of a beta-blocker (ACE) without consulting a cardiologist. The shortness of breath, however, remained. Later, he switched to enalapril 20, mainly against high blood pressure. Other chronic diseases that have been with me for more than 20 years have widened. Once a year occurring forehead u. Sinusitis also appeared suddenly in the summer and remained unusually persistent and long. The first ENT doctor consulted the case with a far too low dose of antibiotic, and for the first time also had an allergic reaction with which I never had to fight before. Sinusitis dominated my head for a good three weeks and has been on more and more often ever since. The blood glucose levels derailed significantly each time, especially in the morning. A muscle tension in the back I attributed to a nocturnal chill, which may have been caused by a slipped Zudecke, but I had a good four weeks, an exceptionally painful muscle strain on the right back. A misstep on the descent from the second step of a stepladder was followed by a fall back on soft mossy turf, but as it rolled, it squeezed my right arm roughly into the right side, culminating in a six-week healed healing of a broken rib. From a ridiculous crawl on all fours to plant a garden-bed, I was unable, as a result of shortness of breath, to raise myself again, and fell on my stomach, like a fish on dry land. All shopping trips by bike regularly lead, despite adapted clothing, to torrents of sweat that stream out of all the pores of my head, as if you had turned on a water tap. – After that, I often have to recover for over an hour lying on my bed and change clothes completely. My consumption of kitchen rolls has increased dramatically in the last two years, but not by the need for kitchen work. The fragrance that accompanied me for over ten years, would rather not speak. Unfortunately, I barely smell it myself and may therefore often let me respond to it. A particularly unpleasant side effect is the coloring of body sweat. The ingested drug cocktail bleeds outright yellow in the underwear and can be bleached only by the soaking in dilute chlorine detergent for several days before cooking with the machine at all again. Another normality associated with diabetes sequelae are nerve disorders, especially on the extremities. Whenever I lie down for more than a few minutes, the numbness begins in the toes and bones of both feet. As soon as I stand and walk, the feeling subsides, regardless of any “sugar pleasure”. Since I also suffered from increased sleep disturbances in previous years, often due to occupational stress, at first I could not see any direct connection with Actos 45. However, I believe that especially after reading the internet I should reevaluate the context of action. Often I fall asleep with exhaustion for one to three hours, then I’m back – also deep in the night

    Side effects: Sleep disorders; Nausea

    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 Fertility disorders; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    The drug needs to be crept in. I started with 1 tabl. / day and am now at 3 pcs / day. The initial diarrhea has given complete, as well as the nausea in the first days. I still have an appetite loss, but I’m not really sad about that, so it has a positive side effect. In addition, with the help of metformin, I have already lost 7 kg and I think that was only the beginning. I do not like crystal sugar any more, I have a terrible feeling in my mouth, which is why I do not eat sweets any more.

    Side effects: Weight loss; Anorexia; Nausea; Diarrhea

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have had diabetes mellitus type 2 for over a year and will be treated with metformin 850 mg 2 times a day. My Hba1c values have become so good that my doctor said they have no sugar at all! Which is wrong, of course! I’ve just kept up with diet and medication! But under the high dose metformin I had persistent nausea, so I did not know one more and took in addition MCP and travel pills. Finally, I’m allowed to inject a depot insulin! This relieves me clearly and there are no more food cravings and sweats!

    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.

    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!

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    For the first few days I had very severe stomach problems, nausea, headaches. These disappeared creeping after about 14 days. Since the beginning of therapy, I have had an unpleasant change in the consistency of my chair. This is 90% mushy. Also today I occasionally have stomach cramps and an acoustically unpleasant gurgling in the abdomen. Flatulence is also a constant unpleasant side effect in acoustic and nasal form. I feel rather flawed and partially without a drive. Since ingestion, I also have side effects with the skin, ranging from mild redness and itching to open spots on the back. My doctor says there are clearly drug-related side effects. I do not take any other medicines. My health insurance probably pays no other, more expensive drugs. According to therapy recommendation, I should take it. But I’m not ready to continue tollerieren this mass of side effects.

    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 Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Since I’ve always had to deal with hardship, I can report that I have finally had regular bowel movements since I take the drug. However, I often have to deal with nausea shortly after the Einhhame and strengthened winds. Shortly after taking it, I am completely without any appetite and the thought of eating is unpleasant …. but that is good for my overweight. In the meantime I have become accustomed to this accompanying phenomenon. About the effectiveness, I can not report anything, because I was first adjusted to the drug. You can also partially positive side effects.

    Side effects: Anorexia; Flatulence; Nausea

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type i

    I took this medicine for a few days and became very crabby. Very strong diarrhea, up to 20 times a day, abdominal pain and big nausea. I could only feed on tea, which was also good for me. I can not recommend this medicine to anyone and please stop all those side effects immediately. It took me weeks to get my body back into balance. Now have another drug, I’m fine!

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Nausea; Diarrhea
