Hi, I am taking Glucophage (slow release Metformin) and have just been prescribed Januvia to take also. I have had stomach pains and upset stomach since being on them, the plus side is that I have lost weight so am very happy about that but wondered if anyone else has experienced the stomach pain and if so how long did it take for it to subside. If anyone has any advice etc I would be so grateful.
Is this dosage too much for him. He's been experiencing stomach pain and when he started taking the medication had the runs. Someone told me that she was on the same medication and was given 40mg, which was too much for her. I'm concerned that the amount he's taking is causing this pain and discomfort.
Hi - I need to lose about 60-70 lbs. I have an underactive thyroid and am on levoxyl (SP?) - Anyway I have been jogging 4 miles 3x/week + 1 hour of weights at the gym and have a trainer. - I can't lose any weight! I fluctuate between a loss of 1-2 lbs but thats it....The workouts have reduced my cholest. and my Thyroid is norm. - my mean blood glucose is 101.
I also started a new diabetes medicine called Januvia about 5 months ago and my stomach pain seems to be worse even though this isn's one of the main side effects.
I also just started 150mg of Ranitidine twice a day for my stomach pain that makes me always feel nauseaous, and 100mg of Loratidine once a day for allergies. and today im starting taking Vitamins that i had stopped for a while.
Immediately she prescribed Metformin and Januvia. Her body did not react well on Metformin and we switched to Glupizide 5mg once a day in the morning. She continues to have out of control sugar. Like for example yesterday in the morning it was 320, and after a pill it went down to 260. A week ago when her sugar was out of control, I took her to ER where she was put on IV and was given some insulin. Her condition improved immediately, but deteriorated again 5 hours later.
lymph nodes are still huge, I have tremors and dizzy spells, head aches, and ear pain from lymph node pressure. I have had shoulder and hip pain leg pains back and rib pain. Doctors have been running tests for months some abnormal some normal they don't point to exact cause but I feel I am slowly dying. Everyone around me is constantly concerned. I have been told multiple times they are sure they know what it is and they end up moving on. NOW my GP and ENT are SURE it is lymphoma.
The first time I tried it it upset my stomach. I waited awhile and tried it again, doctors idea, and it did nothing for my pain, but I will tell you that I had trouble urinating, I mean I felt like I had to go but I had to push to go.(sorry for the description) Then about 3 weeks into it I started having terrible tremors. I thought I was coming down with parkinsons because my hands would shake so bad I couldnt even write.
If you take it everyday for a long period of time, it can really irritate your stomach and even cause ulcers and gastritis, which can give you nausea and vomiting episodes.
I'm a type II diabetic/insulin resistant and take Actosplus MET and Januvia--this has helped with endothelial dysfunction and small vessel disease. I do have occasional angina (actually this past week I had enough to take sublingual nitro a few times, which is a bit odd). For the first several months after the stent, I had alot of angina, and it was relieved by nitro. It wasn't anxiety or heart burn. After adjusting the Atenolol and Cardizem to rather high levels, I started to get relief.
Januvia, 100 mg, 1x/day; Bumetanide, 2 mg, 1x/day. He was put on an antibiotic and a pill for his stomach and also a gerd medication recently. I do not have those dosages with me at this time. He was taken off the Janumet and put on the Januvia because his diarrhea because the Janumet has some sort of chemical that promotes diarrhea.
Since starting these meds two months ago, I have had NO upper stomach pain, no heartburn, and can tolerate foods I never could before. He also added two injections, Symlin and Victoza. I was unaware that he was prescribing these for anything other than slowing down the functions of my digestive system...he did say that weight loss was a definite side effect but would also help with my symptoms....HE WAS 100 percent CORRECT!!!
