Metformin and warfarin

Common Questions and Answers about Metformin and warfarin


233616 tn?1312790796 All I can say to that is if you are not IR or have type 2 diabetes you don't want to be on metformin. My husband is diabetic and needs it but why would you want to take it if you don't need it? Too much IR resistance information going around these days. Either your IR or your not. Tx life doesn't revolve around IR resistance, diabetes, obesity etc, etc. I think it's good to be aware, but all the information lately has been a bit much. Prior to tx fasting glucose was normal.
Avatar f tn I was in hospital for 7 days and was having 2 clexane injections a day. They also put me on warfarin and I will continue to have these for 6 months. I mentioned during this time to the hospital doctor that my GP mentioned taking Metformin. He said that he had no issue with me taking them! Yesterday was my first tablet and I am just curious to know other people's experience and whether it works. I don't exercise much but really going to change that now. Is there any foods I should avoid?

1090423 tn?1286291250 i am on warfarin for dvt and metformin for diabetes nothing has changed , i have only been on warfarin for 5 weeks
Avatar f tn I also take warfarin due to a replaced mitral valve and once-daily extended-release metformin for borderline diabetes. I checked interactions for warfarin and there seems to be no problem with interactions. I started taking capsules instead of the liquid and at first it did seem to be better but I think I'm having the same issues, plus occasionally slight cramping in the lower left of the stomach. Any idea what could be causing this problem?

Avatar m tn gov/pmc/articles/PMC3914521/ CoenzymeQ is safe and wont interfere with drugs unless it is warfarin,a blood thinning drugs. However, I dont think it will help a lot with the blood glucose. Dietary supplements can be very expensive and at best, they only help a little. Again, have your mother performed exercise to help which is free? Kevin.
Avatar f tn She gave me that because I was taking way too many Tylenol and it was effecting my liver. I am limited to certain meds because I take Warfarin. About 6 years ago I developed a dvt in my right leg that broke off and I got mult. pulm. emoblisms in both lungs. (forgot to mention that). Almost died. She and I both want to ultimately get me off the Lortab....but to be doesn't do much and I don't even get drowsy on it. It takes the edge off my pain sometimes...
Avatar f tn but my problem is i have hormonal imbalance i went to my doctor in ob..she recomend me to take the Clomid, duphaston,metformin, folic acid, and iron..and my biggest problem i have mitral valve prolapse it is possible to getting pregnant in my situation? im so tired of taking this drug for almost 1 year but until now we dont have a baby..
Avatar n tn I need some answers to the severity of this condition. I feel that my primary care physician and the members of his staff and group where very neglectful in this matter. any advice would be appreciated in regards to filing a case against them for there neglect to inform me of this (EF) report.
Avatar f tn He is diabetic with severe neuropathy, has HSP, IGaN nephropathy, COPD, and a host of other issues - and has not been able to keep ANYTHING down since Tuesday including his warfarin, metformin, etc. His blood pressure is around 190/118, pulse fluctuating widely, his glucose is bouncing from 42-300+, and he is dehydrated. If he would go to the ER I would take him BEFORE I have to call an ambulance or a hearse for him.
Avatar n tn I need someone to explain the severity of this Echo report that was dated back to 07/19/2005 this report was not brought to my attention until August 11, 2008. Now 3 yrs have gone by, and I just had an EKG/Echo done 08/11/08 at my Doctors office which has been faxed to the cardiologist. I have an appointment Monday with the cardiologist.
1542388 tn?1293855413 He is on Lantus 50 units qd and 1 table of Janumet (which is 50mg Sitagliptin/1000mg Metformin) qd and sometimes BID. Just bought a book by Dr. Neal Barnard hoping to get the DM where it should be. I think the Inf/Reb tx had something to do with the onset of the DM-everything was just too coincidental! I worry too all these DM meds are hard on the liver. His kidneys seem to be OK so far; GFR's are 100 from Oct and 117 from April, but he does have Htn with BP on the 27th 162/87.
1018470 tn?1251337123 I did tell the doc's I put her on some herbal stuff, not sure what they will actually say when we go, but we are keeping a close eye on her diabetes, blood pressure and warfarin levels. So far the numbers are good. I was some what worried about her warfarin levels so had them checked and they're staying steady! That is a big relief! Do you know of any other way other than by antibiotic use to rid the system of this nasty bacteria?
1294995 tn?1330666336 ) But I have been on Metformin for going on 3 months now and It still hasn't helped much, to date I have lost 18 pounds and still no AF. Not to say I have been on and off Clomid for almost a year now... (this would be my 6th round), and AF dosent come. But the crazy part is that I Ovulate..and still no AF. And I dont want to do BC because I am TTC, and when I was on BC AF came like every other or every 3 months. With all these drugs plus Provera...I don't know what is wrong with me!

HCG keeps there ***** from shrinking from doing does nothing for fat loss..dont you think they would say wow..all of sudden ,im loseing fat..and it would be used for need to wake up...they also give it to young boys with undeceding weight loss in them..I challenge you..
Avatar n tn My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is.
Avatar n tn I've been to vascular surgeons, cardiologists. hand surgeons and regular md's and no one can help me. This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
