Actos med

Common Questions and Answers about Actos med


Avatar n tn Hi, 1. Can someone tell me what Actos Pioglitazone HCL 15 mg Tablet is for and how it can help Diabetic? 2. Is there an article or simple write-up about what Diabetes is. I would like to send the write-up to my Manager and HR Department so they are well informed. I also have acting manager who just left for 4-months leave who would call me in his office and give me hassle about small things and that obviously would raise my bsl's as I am on receiving end.
Panda After several years of weakness and fatigue, I stopped Actos and Junuvia and began to feel better after several weeks. I'm not sure which med was the cause. Anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn Ask for Actos, I took it for my tyoe II. There are other medications too, talk to your doctor.

2121068 tn?1334901658 I've just started on a new diabetic med-Actos. Right now, with my doctors help, I'm adjusting the dosage to see how much I need. I started on 15mg which didn't help. Now I'm taking 30mg, I'm seeing a little results-but not good enough to drop my levels down to 120 which is my aim. I'm going to stick with this dose for a while till I see how it reacts with my exercise and diet changes.
Avatar n tn So yesterday I called my dr and he told me to go back on metmorfin plus the actos. He wants to start me on an injectible med but I am going out of town next week so he won't start it, that is why he told me to go back on metmorfin. I just started to cried because I was just starting to feel better and now after being back on the metmorfin for 24 hours I have having my issues again. Not to mention I am going on a cruise next weekend and I don't want to have this problem.
178107 tn?1315951230 Actos made my appetite surge and I gained 20 lbs with combo Actos/Lantus. I went off Actos but still inject 20 units in evening. BS fast is 215. I do not EAT wrong.
Avatar n tn The numbers of 114 I guess are what he is talkingabout. But putting u on Actos, hum, this is a jury out on this med, haven't u heard. U love your heart, right? Don't take it. Ther is natural stuff like cinnimon capsules, and chromium. I take both it hasn't really helped but its only been a few weeks. Maybe u can help me I go to bed and my BS can be 125, and when I wake up its 145. dawn Phenomenon for sure. I hear people say eat a piece of high % of dark chocolate with 80% cocoa.
Avatar n tn I saw my dr on apr 30th and he took me off the metmorfin and put me on Actos 30mg. Been on if for a week now. My painful bowel problem went away and I finally ventured out of the house and did a days full of activity without have to keep running to the bathroom every 5 minutes. My blood sugars during this week have shot up above 300 and stay'd there. So yesterday I called my dr and he told me to go back on metmorfin plus the actos.
603046 tn?1279163013 You probably suffer from Dawn Phenomenon where your body produces more glucose and your blood sugar rises after you get up until you eat. Some people find having a snack before bed helps with DP. You need to get that fasting number down. Hopefully the new med will help.
Avatar f tn I am told that at this point the MS Contin is necessary so I will not be able to lose that med just yet. My weight is dropping finally but I have been so nauseous this past week that I am losing it because of that. I guess that's ok too.
Avatar n tn I am diabetic and I take metformin, actos and glyburide and I had a lucunar infarct 7 months ago. What can I do to not feel like a Zombie constantly?
Avatar f tn I take synthroid, diovan hct, cymbalta, prolosec otc, actos, metformin er, full aspirin, vytorin, sulfazine ec, plavix, tricor, coreg cr, lunesta, and prescribed vitamin d. my rheumy wants me to start humira when i'm done with some dental surgery. what, if any, add med could i take that would not interfere with all the above? i have good blood pressure and cholesterol and i exercise every day. Thanks!
Avatar f tn ToprolXL, Lotrel, and Diovan/HCT for the high blood pressure, Gemfibrozil for slightly elevated cholesterol (I cannot take statins), Actos, and Metaformin for diabetes. I recently started physical therapy treatments for the lymph edema. The PT said that the HCT (HydroCloroThyazide) component of the Diovan is a diuretic which I remember being put on to help treat the Lymph edema. One of the side effects is elevated blood sugar.
Avatar n tn I think that anytime there are new symptoms or reactions to a med, the doc should be made aware of it. Is this something to be worried about. I don't know. Is it something to discuss with the doc...definitely. I think I would have had questions as soon as I heard the doc say the jury is still out. If that is the case, then have the doc prescribe something that has been around for awhile and has proven itself.
99457 tn?1321882277 I went on ACTOS (NEVER AGAIN), I didnt mind because I didnt have the side effects on it like I did on Metoformin, however I had my first M/C while taking it. I then went to specialist who said I was infertile. I didnt believe them so I went my own route and started seeing an herbalist, within 3 months of getting off the Meds I am pregnant and am now 8w4d along and we go back again on Friday for a check up.
Avatar f tn I have tried Metformin 1000 mg a day it makes me extremely ill.
Avatar m tn Been diabetic for 4 years, I am on 3 different meds, Metformin at 1000 mg twice a day, Actos 45 mg, Glipzide 20 mg twice a day. Last month was started on immediate slow release Insulin. My level stays now between 140 and 180. My A1C test have always been above 7.2, I just was letting you know some of the other drugs available for use. None of this drugs cause me any side effects. Talk to your doctor about these other drugs that you can take.
Avatar n tn ) After doing some searching, I found metformin, actos and lipitor. What I found was that metformin and actos were primarily given to those with type 2. I am in no way disagreeing with your treatment or your doc's instructions. Please feel free to enlighten me about these 2 meds. I have also found that Lipitor is used for individuals with high cholesterol. (I am not analysing you or your doc, I just wanted to know more about these meds.
Avatar m tn My blood results came back with elevated cholesterol, tryglicerides, etc., as in the past. The dr was going to put me on a new cholesterol med when he noticed my AST is 100/ALT 125 and asked if I drank and I only have maybe 3 beers a month or a glass of wine once a month-nothing significant. He said b4 he could prescribe cholesterol med that I should have a sonogram of my liver....I am very, very nervous but he and nurse reassured me it should be fine.......
Avatar n tn I saw my dr on apr 30th and he took me off the metmorfin and put me on Actos 30mg. Been on if for a week now. My painful bowel problem went away and I finally ventured out of the house and did a days full of activity without have to keep running to the bathroom every 5 minutes. My blood sugars during this week have shot up above 300 and stay'd there. So yesterday I called my dr and he told me to go back on metmorfin plus the actos.
Avatar m tn We could have added more Metformin, and Actos, and then perhaps resorted finally to insulin, or, we could try this. Time will tell if we made the right decision, but my sugar levels are saying, for now at least, that we made the right one. What I would like to learn here is if there have been any serious side affects (besides pancreatitis which I already know about) in people since the studies were documented in the med insert.
1303999 tn?1279585526 Since we are all different, it could be the way the med affects you. Are you making sure to keep your diet on track and get enough exercise?
Avatar m tn 37 years and I've been treated 2x first in 1998 with inter/riba and then 2002 peg-inter/riba. Waiting for the next gen of stuff like vertex med or transplant in future. Genotype 1A and I suspect cirrhosis is stage iv, but still compensated with good numbers overall. Latest A1C is 7.4. I'd managed to keep it down to lower 6 by exercise and diet, but lately it has climbed. First, med they gave me was Amaryl and that is really taken me too low on just 1mg dosage. What about Juniva?
Avatar n tn Please help. I am takeing actos and glucaphage for my diabeties. I truly cannot take this anymore. My grandchildren do not want to go anywhere with me because of it. I am 57.
Avatar f tn My opinion is that the value of end of tx treatment PCR is a little misleading if you have been und all through tx. Although you were only tested once, as a Geno 2 (if you were fully med compliant) the EOT PCR is not likely to be real informational for the doc. If the worst happens, relapse, you would not have the same treatment regimen anyway. If I had a PCR to spend, I'd do it one month after the last riba went down the hatch.
Avatar f tn Nothing happened, however my physician believed all of this fainting was because of two medications (Actos and Bumetinide) I was taking causing me to dehydrate causing my heart to pump harder but lacking to supply my brain with enough oxygen. I am a little skeptible of this diagnosis and until reading some of the questions here was at a lost for what it might be. This much I know....just before fainting I experienced the worse feeling I have ever felt in my life!
Avatar f tn I appreciate your mentioning those meds. I'm very nervous about the med my hubby's doctor prescribed- Actos. It says to consult your phsician if you have active liver disease. My hubby's PCP has already screwed up with a dx and a med with my husband, so I'm not letting him take this Actos until either one of you on this forum says it's OK, or hubby's gastro calls me back and gives me the green light.
Avatar n tn When they need additional FT3, then they can adjust it individually by taking a T3 med such as Cytomel, along with the T4 med, or some prefer to use a combo T4/T3 med such as Armour Thyroid or NatureThroid. In my opinion I think you really need to find a good thyroid doctor, by which I mean one that can answer yes to those three questions I listed in my first post.
