    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

    Metformin for Cholesterol value increase; High blood pressure; Diabetes mellitus type i

    Before taking without diagnosis of diabetes: tiredness, constant sleep, no desire to do something, strong sweating, strong overweight, no condition but absolute well-being. With taking the medication: Constant internal muscle twitching, especially at night. Restlessness, anxiety, trembling, severe muscle spasms, sudden pain in the upper arms or legs, sometimes back pain from the neck (looking down). Listlessness and listlessness (no sex life anymore), insomnia, difficulty falling asleep, constant reflection and can not switch off, burning sensation in the stomach, chest pain, constant feeling unwell, panic attacks / fear of death sporadically occurring ….. I could write the list even further. It is important that I have a happy and contented life before taking the tablets described without any health problems, except, of course, the high sugar value, which I now have almost under control with a nutrition education and-Umstellung.

    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.
