See a doctor: Istamet is a combination of metformin and sitigliptin, used for treating type 2 diabetes. You should not be having trouble breathing or chest pain from this medication. Those symptoms may be a sign of a more serious heart or lung problem, despite your young age. You need to see a doctor for evaluation.
