Is metformin hydrochloride (glucophage xr) nephro toxic?

Is metformin hydrochloride (glucophage xr) nephro toxic?

No: Metformin is not known to be toxic to the kidneys. The concern may be when a patient has naturally kidney function and they take metformin. That person may then be at (rare, but still documented) risk of a condition called lactic acidosis - a potentially dangerous, body-wide build-up of lactic acid that interferes with the delivery with oxygen. ...Read more

Yes but . . . : How do you know your diabetes medication isn't working? Do you check your sugars w/glucometer? What/when was most recent a1c? How many glycomet are you taking? Try to focus on nutrition first rather than adding more drugs. Max dose of metformin is 2, 550mg/d. Talk to your doc about your options. And be sure your kidneys are ok. ...Read more

Fasting sugar values 90-110; pp values high 200-240. Metformin sr 1g at night, metphormin 500mg + glimpride in morning. Voglibose not effective. Help?

Fasting sugar values 90-110; pp values high 200-240. Metformin sr 1g at night, metphormin 500mg + glimpride in morning. Voglibose  not effective. Help?

Other medication: You have mostly post prandial hyperglycemia. Metformin and glimeperide work mostly for fasting sugars, the voglibose can help with pp sugars, but it is a weak medication. One should consider being on either a glp-1 agonist (exenatide, liraglutide) or a dpp-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin, saxagliptin, linagliptin, alogliptin) as these are more effective for pp hyperglycemia. ...Read more

Hello. Is omega XL safe for diabetics taking insulin metformin glipizide Lipitor (atorvastatin) diazid tricor & bp meds, spiriva  advair. ?

Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read more

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

How effective is wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 100mg?

How effective is wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 100mg?

Depends.: That would depend on what the wellbutrin (bupropion) sr is prescribed to treat. Wellbutrin (bupropion) sustained release would generally be used to treat depression, however it is also used for smoking cessation (zyban) and off label for adhd and substance use disorders.

Not necessarily: As a starting dose that is definetely a high dose, but if you have been on it for while it is a moderate dose. Tolerance may occur which means that after a while the same dose is no longer effective. Doses more than 40-60 mg are unlikely to have increased benefit and something else should be considered.

Dangerous supplement: Your fbg is normal. Hopefully your a1c is also good, so it looks like you are controlling your diabetes well. Oxyelite pro contains caffeine, but also dmma. Dmma was designed as a nasal decongestant but is a powerful stimulant that may have caused a number of deaths. It is a banned olympic additive. You don't need this! ...Read more
