1068689_tn?1325830806 According to everything I've read and from my doc, taking Metformin XR over regular Metformin shouldn't be an issue as this really isn't a new drug. But as I said in another post I hadn't started the XR pill yet, I'll get that tomorrow from the pharmacy. They've been closed due to the holiday. My dizziness is slight today so much better than the last two days. still there though. Thanks again.
Avatar_m_tn I have been on metformin for years, but was not controlling BG. My MD switched me to Glimeperide my BG is good but my appetite and weight have increased a lot. Any one have the same issues? Also, my vision is fluctuating from blurry to sharp during the day, I do have Myasthenia Gravis which can have vision issues too. Any comments?
Avatar_n_tn I've been taking 500 mg/day of metformin. Just wondering if any of you have taken this, and if so, have you experienced any weight loss?
Avatar_f_tn 06/07/2013 first day of new meds a.m. glimepiride 1 mg p.m. Metformin 850 mg.
Avatar_n_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> [note spelling] is medium-to-long acting Metformin ER or XR [extended release] is long acting Best to consult with your local Pharmacist for an accurate answer on duration.

Avatar_n_tn I am a 48 year old diabetic female. I take metformin 2000mg daily, Bydurea once a week, venafaxine HCL 150 mg, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> 4 mg, and Nexium 20 mg. Is there something that I can do to change these symptoms? I have begun taking NatureMade''s Probiotic in the hope that it would help, but so far, not much of a difference.
Avatar_m_tn Earlier doctor recommended metformin hydrochloride sustained release tablet 500 mg and glimepiride tablet 2 mg.
Avatar_f_tn i was instructed by my physician to take the following drugs 1) Metformin 1tablet 3 times a day 2) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> 1 tablet once a day. Right now i have been trying to see if i can improve my condition by just eating right and doing some exercise. I really hate taking drugs. Do u think what i am trying to do will help,or it will just worsen the situation. Thanks alot, Ugo.
Avatar_n_tn Dear Doctor, I am a 48 year old Indian male, suffering type II Diabetes since seven plus years. Doctor has advised 1. Trigem-2 (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> USP 2mg + Metformin HCL IP 500mg + Pioglitazone HCL 15 mg) morning before meal. 2. Cresar H (Telmisartan 40mg + Hydrochlorothiazide IP 12.5mg) Once a day. 3. Voltaneuron (Benfothiamine 50mg + Methylcobalamin 500mg + Pyridoxine HCL 30mg) Once a day. 4. Stresstabs once a day Eventhough, my sugar levels are 150-200 fasting and above 200 pp.
Avatar_f_tn So far the diabetes medication seems to cause the flares to be worse. I've tried metformin, actos, glipzide, and the latest one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> (which seems to have by far the worst reactions thus far). Once a flare hits it last for more than 72 hours. I have had all kinds of allergy test run, nothing. I have had all kinds of blood work done. I have a high sed rate and high c-reactive proteins, high cholestrol and triglisrides, severe sleep apnea.
Avatar_m_tn 5 all normal and they get better if I drink more sugar drinks OR if I am on metformin. Metformin doesnt lower them any further. It just helps with the resistance. Thanks for answering. I will check with the doctor.
Avatar_f_tn He takes 2 tablets Glycomet Trio 1 (Metformin HCL Sustained Release, glimepiride & Voglibose Tablets) - 1 before taking lunch and before taking dinner.
Icecream The main concern I would have about the addition to Lantus 20 units daily would be the risk of low blood sugar, especially in combination with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>. Both Lantus and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> can cause low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. Just make sure you're watching for the signs of low blood sugar, which are, sudden headache, feeling shaky, and weakness. There are many more signs of hypoglycemia and I encourage you to research it more yourself.
Avatar_n_tn After this happened a couple of times I quit taking the Metformin. About a year later I was then diagnosed with T2 and am now on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> and have since began having these episodes again. They begin in the jaw area primarily the glands just below my jaws, with a sting/tingling that intensifies and radiates out all around my ears, neck throat and surface of my chest, and my upper torso goes ice cold. This takes place any where from a 30 second to a 3 minute cycle.
Avatar_n_tn Shes already on zoryl-3 (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> 3mg),piodart-15(pioglitazone 15mg), X-met( metformin 500 mg) besides that she is on antihypertensives( ramipril and hydroclorthiazide), allopurinol, hypolipidemic (atorvastatin). Her blood sugar is still high in the range of 240-270 mg/dl. I request you, and Sir/Maam please do take this message into consideration to inform me about the treatment options. Should insulin be started, her glycosylated hbA1c level was 8. And any other treatment options.
Avatar_n_tn Hi Doctor, My wife has consulted the doctor as advised by you and he has prescribed Cetapin 1000 mg 1-0-1 (metformin) along with Glimy-4(<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>)1-0-0-. Hope this is OK.
Avatar_n_tn Clonidine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>, Byetta, Metformin, Amlodipine, Crestor, and Losartan HCT. Is it possible that it could be these meds? Please help!! I'm working by tail off and still have a GUT. Thank you in advance.
1273125_tn?1365081126 Hey Scrappy - has your doctor suggested adding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> to your Metformin? I am type 2, have been for 10 years - also only have 1/2 a Pancreas, as I had to have the other half removed due to a tumor in the head of my Pancreas - 8 hour surgery, and 8 days in the hospital, which is where the Insulin shots started. Initially, I came home from the hospital on both types of Insulin.
Avatar_n_tn Levoxyl,lisinopril,metformin,glimepiride I dont have insurance, went to the doctor in February, he said it was sinus. Please help!!
Avatar_m_tn most of the pain has subsided, but now for the last week to 10 days i have a numbness in my arm every 30 seconds to 2-3 minutes (left arm and hand). i am a diabetic and have been for about 1 1/2 years. i am on metformin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>, but i don't think that is the problem. hopefully it is just a pinched nerve. it has lasted for 2-3 months with, as i said before arm pain, which has gone away, but now the numbness is constant.

Avatar_n_tn barbara, I am a type 2 diabetic non insulin dependant and treat with metformin and amaryl(<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>) I also used insulin when I was on tx because of the wild swings in levels(sugar) The dosages your hubby is taking were the same as I ..180/1000. Ifound the the major problem with maintaining sugar levels was diet related,i.e. either too much carbs or not enough. I'm sure you are aware of the intake of carbs, however on tx. this is not always achieved .

Avatar_f_tn Anyway, he prescribed me a monitor to test at home, as well as put me on Metformin and Glimeperide. He actually gave me the monitor a month before putting me on the meds.
Avatar_n_tn I am taking some tablets prescribed by my doctor containing (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> USP,pioglitazone hydrochloride,metformin hydrochloride). Is it ok to take these tablets? does this contain sugar?
Avatar_f_tn nothing like that in the house. My cupboards are bare and my fridge is loaded. I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span>, 4 mg. I was on metformin with nasty side effects. The more I move the more trouble I have keeping my sugars level. I can't see to figure out how to move (ie: exercise, walk, shop) and stay level. Thank you for your response!

Avatar_n_tn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> – 2 mg once day (for BS) • Coreg – 25 mg twice a day (for BP) • Cozaar – 50 mg once a day ((for BP) • Januvia – 100 mg once a day (for BS) • Metformin ER – 500 mg twice a day (for BS) • Lipitor – 10 mg once a day (for Cholesterol) • Amitriptylin – 10 mg once a day (for relaxation) *BS – Blood Sugar *BP – Blood Pressure He’s been to a numerous amounts of doctors since then, and they have no conclusive answer.
Avatar_f_tn It's not always a difference between left and right hands - sometimes simply different fingers on the same hand 2) Because of this vast difference, how do I tell which is the most accurate, so I know how to treat and/or notify my doctor? I'm currently taking Metformin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glimepiride</span> and of course, if my sugar is already low, I don't want to make it any lower by my meds - but if I'm getting conflicting readings, how do I tell?
