Avatar n tn Otherwise there are some options. Her oral doses may be adjusted upwards if not at the maximum dose(and her kidneys, heart function etc are not contraindications). A new medication called Byetta has shown good results in persons struggling to get their sugars down when already on several oral medications. It is an injectable medication taken twice daily. Insulin would otherwise be my next suggestion, starting with one or two injections per day.

Avatar m tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
