Common Questions and Answers about Metformin and uti

glucophage

It is unfortunate you did not get a culture back that was clear on its indication of bacteria and their sensitivity. The 2 antibiotics you have been on are not necessarily innapropriate. Over the past 10 yrs most physicians have chosen the fluroquinolones like Cipro, Floxin etc. In the recent past few years bacteria have become resistant to even those new drugs, and have forced them to go back to the older drugs like Bactrim DS nd Macrodantin.
If you do not get proper treatment, the UTI will not heal and it will come back and lead to further complications and pain.
I took 80 tablets of it with 7 days of cipro but still feel a little pain in the lower abdomen, but my urine is clear I take metformin sometimes but it gives me nausea.
) My urologist suggested that perhaps my severe UTI/Kidney Infection triggered overactive bladder symptoms and prescribed me three weeks of Detrol LA to determine if that would alleviate my symptoms. I have only been on the Detrol for 2 days so far and am waiting to see if it will offer some relief. The other only medication I have ever taken is 500 mg of Metformin once a day in the evening to control my body’s overproduction of insulin.
i was not even expecting that i ll be pregnant this month as i have 5 disappointing months of clomid and metformin and this was my last. any way it was a shock when i found out that i am actually 4 weeks and 2 days pregnant. i had some implantation bleeding which stayed for a day. now i am nearly 5 weeks 1 day left. and i am having this discharge. first it was thick and yellowish whitish.

I was just being negative and thought it was too good to be true. Well, I went to the bathroom and nothing. I waited for my results, and the nurse called me very quickly. All she said was congradulations and I almost fainted. The cramps, and PMS signs went away after a few days, after the reality that I was pregnant set in.

I did notice something in it, really fine almost like skin. I've had this happen before and I had vaginitis and a UTI. today I noticed I was bleeding more and it was clotty. It bothers me because me and my fiance are trying to concieve. I have a very irregular period, but last couple months it's come around the same time each month. I've been off birth control for over a year now(but we just started trying in Febuary this year). I'd go to a doctor, but I don't have insurance.
You said you are taking Metformin. I am guessing since you just said Metformin you mean the regular type and not the long lasting type. Metformin is not a PRN drug - meaning you don't really take it based on a single blood sugar level. Instead, you take it as prescribed. It takes 1 hour after you take regular Metformin before it actually starts to get in your bloodstream but the drug needs to be taken for about a week before it starts to stabilize your blood sugar.
Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Hi there- have type 2 diabetes and am doing well on metformin and lifestyle changes. Numbers are well within range now. My question is - even though my diabetes is ' under control' right now- why do I still have urgency to urinate and frequency? I thought that would be controlled as long as my diabetes is controlled. Have not had a uti since way before diagnosis....
I don't have a uterus (hysterectomy 05) I am 36 years old and wanted to know what could this possibly be and what can be done. Should I consider surgery to get it removed.
At any exertion, sweat would pour from his head and the rest of his body and he would continue sweating for a long time afterwards. Heartburn and acid reflux, especially at night. Flushing in the face, without apparent reason. His doctor diagnosed him with depression. Against his grain, he agreed to try different anti-depressants but things kept getting worse. Apart from all of the other symptoms, he started having some episodes that his doctor described as panic attacks.

This is called DUB (dysfunctional uterine bleeding) and is treated by birth control pills, progesterone alone, and sometimes metformin. Metformin is a diabetes drug but some hormonal imbalances are due to a complicated condition called PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)which may have an underlying association with insulin resistance. Sometimes a well placed fibroid can distort the uterine cavity and cause heavy bleeding.

I'm almost 16 weeks pregnant and I was having a little spotting and brown discharge and the doctor prescribed me Flagyl. He said I had some kind of bacteria infection. I was wondering has anyone else ever taken that during pregnancy or anykind of prescribed medicine? I had a miscarriage in October '05 so I'm nervous to even take a Tylenol.
Yes and it was clean, he treated me for a yeast infection.
I'm so weak from this surgical catastrophe that I can't see an endo right now. my BG was 183 and I can't take metformin.
Hi All! Need some suggestions/advice. I am a 54 yr old woman who has been spotting/bleeding for the past 3 1/2 years. EVERY DAY! Only went away for 5 months 2 1/2 yrs ago, then on again. Just had an endometrial biopsy at the "clinic" (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous.
my potassium was 15 on the 1st blood test at the ER, AST/ALT 80/260 1 month post op tracheotomy. I think it was 150/520 right at postop. I was on the benza klonopin, metformin, narcotic Percocet, tyenol, levocetirizine, after the operation for a month after the trach I was dizzy/exhausted, bedridden for 8 weeks (recovery is 3-10 days).
C, but it actually seems to be heavier than normal. I also feel more crampy and tired than usual, and I have been getting headaches off and on. I am definitely more emotional than normal. I feel like anything and everything could make me cry. I don't know if it's the realization that I'm definitely not pregnant anymore and I'm not going to have the baby or if it's because my hormones are still not quite back to normal yet.
Been doing a bit of research. on www.ivf.com/pcotreat.html and have found that it may be an option for me to have "medicines used....for the treatment of adult onset diabetes... These medications have been shown to reverse the endocrine abnormalities seen with PCOS within two or three months.....We have seen pregnancies result in less than two months in women who concieved in their very first ovulatory menstrual cycle.
These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.

My friend thinks I had a really bad yeast infection or a UTI. I used monistat and it didn't help much. The bumps don't really hurt. I notice that some stay small and some are bigger. This morning I noticed some new ones. I am totally freaking out. I have been with two partners in the last 2 years. Neither one of them have anything. No herpes or anything. What is this? I take metformin for PCOS and I have had quite a bit of diarrhea too....could this be a side effect?
