glucophage

This is something you should discuss with your Pharmacist as dose, duration/length of time taken, and type of Metformin may have contributing factors.
Does stopping Metformin 250 have withdrawal symptoms? I am feeling wierd.My Dr.said I am no longer diabetictype2.lost weight etc.Have taken Metformin 10 yrs.at higher doses.My Dr.Stopped the Metformin yesterday.
My question is, has anyone else experienced this and if there are any withdrawal symptoms of it. The last 3 days she has been trembling, fighting constipation(she hasn't had a bowel movement in over a week-taking Correctol, sipping prune juice-about 4 oz a day and tried an enema)and unable to leave her bed but the quick trips to the bathroom which is right by her room.
How many days after IUI would you experience pregnancy symptoms? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/184972'>how many days after iui would you get pregnancy symptoms OPEN</a>.
The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
My question is basically will any of this affect my methadone dose at all? I am having a lot of withdrawal symptoms before I get dosed. My stomach hurts, nose runs, jitteryness, and the hibby-jibbys, can't sit still, cold sweats. These go away when I take my dose of 90 mg methadose but throughout the day when I'm working I get horrible hot flashes with a runny nose and jitteryness and crawling skin that feels close to withdrawal symptoms.
I'm having usuaual physical symptoms, too. Headaches, last period unusually heavy, triggerless panic attacks, general anxiety, terribly sore nipples prior to my upcoming period (never happens, and no, I'm not pregnant), worsening of tourette's syndrome, irritability, and I'm either constipated or have diarrhea. Never a normal bowel movement. This all started a few days after I'd begun exercising. I had my thyroid, electrolytes and blood sugar checked last week. All were normal.
HCTZ, Avapro, Advicor, Tekturna, Metformin, Byetta. No drug or alcohol use. Non-smoker. BP and BG control are generally good (although my BG has been creeping up over the past several months). For years I have been experiencing a constellation of symptoms which are becoming more severe, more frequent, and are affecting my quality of life.
I have PCOS with insulin resistance and hypothyroidism (taking metformin and thyroid), in case that's somehow relevant. Last fall, I was prescribed zoloft to treat anxiety related to new workplace responsibilities. After taking it for a few months, I ran out of refills on the prescription this spring, and never scheduled in a follow-up with the psychiatrist.
ended up in ER with heart attack symptoms. sheesh I wish there was a freakin handbook and I do MEAN BOOK to hand out to new patients on all this stuff. turns out ativan is hell...some say worse than heroin...to get off of. anyway, see my thread on ativan and treatment drugs withdrawals. it's been a real merry go round, and not a very smooth horsey ride!! and I've still got 2 more dependant drugs to get off of after this one, ambien and remeron.
I'd bet on it. She is taking large amounts of benzodiazepines. She has symptoms of tolerance withdrawal. Do not stop the temazepam and Klonopin without a good withdrawal plan. I don't know of a single doctor who knows enough about benzo withdrawal to help. So study this well and then look for a doctor who will prescribe a long half-life subsitute benzo and give her a form of it that can be slowly tapered. Your mom is also on an antisiezure drug Valproate.
Try living on a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. She must come of the medication very slowly to prevent withdrawal symptoms. The brain has to adjust to the different levels of serotonin and dopamine.[the chemicals that alters the brain mood] If she takes it very slowly coming off the brain heals and adjusts.
It has made work very difficult. I know it is just withdrawal from hormones and I know it takes time to regulate, but this last one was worse than ever and worse than before I started taking BC. I am just wondering if I were on a pill with less placebo time and more hormones (like Yaz) if that would help at all? Or is this normal and to be expected? My rx will need refills after this pack and if this is normal I don't want to waste my time/money on a Dr. visit.
i have had intermittent menstrual irregularities (sometimes skip a month sometimes 2 times in one month) for over a year now usually related to my hectic studying schedule and stress. ive been treated for pco over a year ago with diane 35, metformin, and atkins based weight loss, recent ultrasounds are clear. to spur my period i ate a large helping of papaya to cause uterine contractions and it worked within a few hours.
You may have withdrawal symptoms, such as depression and extreme tiredness, when you stop using phentermine after a long period of use. Do not stop using phentermine suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely.
I've never taken Medrol or similar drugs, but a bit of research tells me that stopping the med can cause withdrawal symptoms, similar to what you describe. You should never stop taking that type of medication, without consulting your doctor. Even you "weaned" off, you may have done it too quickly, or prematurely. As far as being hypo, can you please post your current thyroid hormone levels? You should be getting tested for TSH, Free T3 and Free T4.
My guess is you may go through mild withdrawal symptoms somewhat similiar to the flu. I think you will be fine. Good Luck and keep us posted.
But the weaning off of this drug takes a long time, and there are withdrawal symptoms for months after removing the drug. Very bad side effects, too, in my sister's case. So do discuss this medication and any other options fully before agreeing to treatment with prednisone. Best to be fully aware of all possible side effects. In my twin's case, the prednisone altered her digestive tract's chemical balance so that she has stomach problems now. But it can be a miracle drug when it is needed.
Thanks Atonicat for providing such good information. I didn't research it... Shame on me!! I know I have watched the medical community get closer and closer to using Suboxone for pain management. I can tell you that several months ago Suboxone's own site said it was not to be used for pain management. So I am not sure of the rational here but need to find the time to research it in detail and discuss this with my colleagues. No other opiate can be used with the new Butrans Patch....
I knew the moment I conceived in all 4 pregnancies and began getting symptoms 7-8 days after conception. I'm not exaggerating in the slightest either.
Finally, it is hard to know whether you have serious disc disease or not based on the MRI; studies show that even people with no symptoms tend to have disc degeneration and bulges once they are over 40 or so. If the pain is in your back, it is more likely related to muscle problems than to herniated discs and pinched nerves. Pain that runs down the leg on the other hand tends to come from nerves that are pinched by bulging or torn discs. The best approach for the former, i.e.
The body is so used to being out of whack that when blood sugars lower you sort have withdrawal symptoms, per se. Drink water then move about. Please do not eat a headache away. Carbs raise blood sugars, simple carbs faster and higher than complex carbs so you want look and follow a low carb diet like Atkins. Use Google to understand the difference between simple and complex carbs. Pay attention to all nutrition labels and read them carefully.
The Metformin study showed an RVR 4x higher on the Metformin group and SVR results were not available yet. But there are a couple of interesting studies using Rosiglitazone and another using Metformin, Rosi or both (the arm using both lowered HOMA more). Bottom line...we know genetics are a factor ...but we don't have time to wait for something that will fix it (SOCS-3 is implicated in the etiology of diabetis too...so maybe we can borrow some of their studies...LOL).
How long do these withdrawal symptoms last?? I am trying so hard not to go pop another pill just to make all this go away.
I've got my suspicians. I believe you might have an osmolality problem, among other problems. I would love to take credit for this hunch, and win the nobel prize, but it was some one else. I had had some serious problems with intermitant partial paralysis after returning from Vietnam (yes, I'm a dinosaur), and "electrical" shocks. When you said "my limb became tingly and then limp" that rang a bell.
This doesn't make sense to me. I am an RN and as far as I know having more male hormones produces a more male sex drive, which would be higher. Don't understand if this is not the case but there may be something more complex involved.
This paper is written by a social psychologist, interested in peoples physiological experiences with hep C and its treatment, not a medical study of hepatitis C, its treatment or its complications/symptoms. It is no surprise then there is no actual medical data in this paper besides genotype and most SVR statuses. "For those that scoff at the idea of therapy after effects, or think its only a small, insignificant group.
When you go off the gluten you will experience a gluten withdrawal - mild headaches (maybe) or an increase in your symptoms. Stick with it. Some find these go away within a few days, other a few weeks. It took about a month with me, with the symptoms getting weaker and weaker as the month went on.
