I refuse to be back on it. I also suffer from an anxiety disorder. All of my mental health care is very well-documented from the time I was 14 years old.
I am now 32 and at a place in my life where I do not want to take any stimulants to help me Focus. I seem to have energy and increased concentration with Wellbutrin. Adderall keeps me more focused but it's not worth the side effects. This medication has worked wonders for me. It definitely helps with attention span, and impulse control, without making me feel on edge like some stimulants did.
My doctor doesn't want to give me anything but narcotics or other prescription medication. I don't want either. Muscle pain can be a sign of a serious side effect of metformin called lactic acidosis. Muscle pain, while on metformin, should be evaluated by a medical provider. Can I buy metformin over the counter? Sarah Lewis, PharmD Q: What will happen if I drink alcohol when taking metformin? Alcohol should be avoided when taking metformin because alcohol lowers the blood sugar and may increase the risk of lactic acidosis.
Lactic acidosis occurs when there is low pH more acidic in the tissues and blood caused by a buildup of lactic acid. This is a rare but deadly condition that is known to be caused by metformin. Your doctor should be able to determine if it is okay for you to drink alcohol and in what quantity while on metformin therapy. Does metformin go through the kidney or the liver?
Metformin is eliminated from your body primarily through the kidneys. It should not be used in patients with kidney disease because it can lead to increased levels of metformin in the body and toxicity. However, metformin should also not be used in patients with liver disease because it increases the risk of a serious side effect called lactic acidosis.
What over-the-counter antidiarrhea medication can I take with metformin? Glucophage metformin is an oral diabetes medication commonly used to control blood sugar levels for Type 2 diabetes. Common side effects for Glucophage metformin are headache, muscle pain, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, and stomach pain.
This is not a complete list of the side effects associated with Glucophage metformin. Imodium is an over-the-counter anti-diarrhea medication. There is no drug interaction between Glucophage metformin and Imodium. Jennifer Carey, PharmD Q: Can metformin shut down your kidneys?
Metformin is an oral diabetes medication that helps control blood glucose sugar levels. It is used to treat type 2 diabetes, either alone or in combination with insulin or other medications. Common side effects include headache, weakness, mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, and stomach pain.
This is not a complete list of side effects that can occur with metformin. Some people have developed a rare but serious, life-threatening condition, called lactic acidosis, while taking metformin.
Seek emergency medical treatment if you experience any symptoms of lactic acidosis including weakness, increasing sleepiness, slow heart rate, cold feeling, muscle pain, shortness of breath, stomach pain, feeling light-headed, and fainting. Kidney problems are not generally caused by metformin itself. However, metformin should not be used in patients who already have kidney disease because the body uses the kidneys to clear metformin from the blood.
If the kidneys cannot do their job properly, high levels of metformin can build up and cause serious side effects. This includes lactic acidosis. So, people with kidney disease are at higher risk for developing lactic acidosis. The risk of lactic acidosis increases when metformin is combined with medications that affect the kidneys, contrast agents for medical tests, or surgery.
All of these increase the risk of kidney problems and lactic acidosis. So, always make sure that all of your health care providers are aware that you take metformin. This is especially important if you have to have an x-ray, CT scan, or surgery.
Other risk factors for lactic acidosis include advanced age 80 years and older , alcoholism, and liver disease. If you are concerned about kidney disease, talk to your doctor about your risk factors.
Your doctor or health care provider is best able to guide your treatment decisions. I took metformin ER for years and developed around-the-clock diarrhea for a week.
My doctor discontinued the medication and my glucose levels went up. Is there other medication that won't cause those side effects? Glucophage metformin is a medication used for diabetes or to lower blood sugar. It works by decreasing the amount of glucose that is made by the liver. Glucophage is the only medication in its class, so there is no other medication that works in the same way.
There are several other oral medications that treat diabetes but they work in different ways and have different side effects than Glucophage. The most common side effect from Glucophage is diarrhea. Diarrhea can be diminished by taking Glucophage with food. Gastrointestinal side effects decrease with prolonged use of Glucophage so if you recently started on the medication you can expect the side effects will decrease over time.
Discuss any problems you have with your medications with your health care provider. The following link will provide information on other oral diabetes medications. My pharmacist said that my Glumetza was on back order until the last of September. Should I have my medicine changed? Glumetza metformin is an oral type 2 diabetes medication commonly used to lower blood sugar levels. Glumetza metformin can be used alone or in combination with other diabetes medications to control blood sugar levels.
Common side effects of Glumetza metformin include headache, muscle pain, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, and abdominal pain.
This is not a complete list of the side effects associated with Glumetza metformin. Glumetza metformin has been recalled and there is no guarantee it will be available in September. Notify your prescribing physician and let them know you are unable to get your medication due to a drug recall. There are other alternative medications available which are very similar to Glumetza metformin including Glucophage metformin , Glucophage XR metformin , Fortamet metformin , and Riomet metformin.
When your doctor prescribes a new medication, be sure to discuss all your prescription and over-the-counter drugs, including dietary supplements, vitamins, botanicals, minerals, and herbals, as well as the foods you eat. Always keep a current list of the drugs and supplements you take and review it with your healthcare providers and your pharmacist.
If possible, use one pharmacy for all your prescription medications and over-the-counter products. This allows your pharmacist to keep a complete record of all your prescription drugs and to advise you about drug interactions and side effects.
Jennifer Carey, RPh Q: Is metformin a good drug for diabetes? Metformin Glucophage is classified as a biguanide antidiabetic medication. Metformin is approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Metformin can be used alone as monotherapy or in combination with other medications such as sulfonylureas or insulin. Metformin works in the body by lowering the amount of glucose that is made by the liver, decreasing the absorption of glucose by the intestines, and improving insulin sensitivity.
Keep in mind these are only possible side effects, they are not guaranteed. Also, this is not all of the side effects reported with metformin. Metformin is one of many different medications available to treat diabetes. Patients can react differently to medications and what may be a good medication for one may not be a good medication for someone else. The decision of what medications to use to treat your medical conditions is best determined by your physician.
When selecting a specific medication to treat a medical condition, there are many variables involved with this decision such as the patient's condition, other medical conditions the patient has, other medications the patient is taking, any drug allergies the patient has, etc. Your health care provider has access to your medical information and is best able to make that decision. My Metformin smells like fish oil.
The report indicates that the odor varies between generic versions of metformin and seems to be more apparent with the immediate-release form of the drug. I've been taking metformin for the past two years. I understand that long-term use of this drug causes kidney problems. Can you tell me if this is true? There is mention in the medical literature of metformin Glucophage causing lactic acidosis in less than 1 percent of patients taking the medication during clinical trials.
The manufacturer lists renal impairment, or kidney problems, as a possible concern with Glucophage. Because metformin is excreted by the kidneys, patients with impaired kidney function should not take the medication. Patients who are dehydrated or have prerenal azotemia a form of kidney failure should also avoid metformin.
Please keep in mind that diabetes itself can cause damage to the kidneys. Discuss your concerns about metformin with your doctor. Jen Marsico, RPh Q: My doctor has increased my metformin dosage. Now I have diarrhea, nausea, and leg cramps. Glucophage metformin works by affecting the production of glucose that comes from digestion.
If the side effect continues or becomes too bothersome, contact your physician. But don't stop your medication without your physician's approval. Kimberly Hotz, PharmD Q: Since I've started taking metformin, I'm having breathing problems.
Studies have shown that some people have developed a life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis when lactic acid builds up in the blood more quickly than it can be removed while taking metformin. You may be more likely to develop lactic acidosis if you have congestive heart failure, or if you are older.
Talk with your doctor about your symptoms and about your individual risk. Two days after I started taking metformin, my legs started to cramp and burn. I also take Coumadin, Levoxyl, and Dyazide. Could the combination of medications be causing the pain? Close clinical monitoring from a doctor is recommended if you take a diuretic such as Dyazide along with diabetes medications like metformin. You should notify your doctor if you experience possible signs of lactic acidosis, such as general discomfort, myalgia muscle pain , breathing problems, hyperventilation, slow or irregular heartbeat, sleepiness, or stomach pain.
You may need an adjusted dose of metformin. Does metformin cause loose stools and incomplete digestion of food? If so, what can I do? The most common side effects of metformin are stomach-related problems such as diarrhea, mild nausea, vomiting, gas, and stomach pain. These side effects usually only occur during the first few weeks of taking metformin; they typically improve over time. Work with your doctor to determine the dosage and timing of metformin that's right for you in order to minimize these side effects.
For example, you may need to start metformin at the lowest dose and slowly increas it to the recommended dosage. An extended-release version of metformin, Glucophage, may also help reduce gastrointestinal problems through its slow-release process. Also, diarrhea, nausea, and upset stomach are greatly reduced when metformin is taken with a meal.
Lastly, it's important to reduce the amount of fats and sugars you eat while taking metformin. Consuming a diet high in fat or carbohydrates while taking metformin can make stomach problems or diarrhea worse. People who take metformin with a low-carbohydrate diet find that stomach upset is minimal. If your side effects persist, you can talk to your doctor about trying an over-the-counter antidiarrhea medications such as Imodium or Gas-X. If these side effects last longer than a few weeks and don't go away even if you change your diet, consult with your doctor.

Symptoms of lactic acidosis are shortness of breath, dizziness, lightheadedness, muscle pain, weakness, and a cold sensation.
If you experience any of these symptoms please consult with your physician immediately. Metformin is not recommended in individuals with kidney or liver disease. Alcohol is not recommended when taking metformin. Any diagnostic procedure such as an x-ray or a cat scan which requires the use of a dye has a serious interaction with Metformin.
Therefore, Metformin is recommended to be discontinued 24 to 48 hours prior to the procedure and not restarted for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure to decrease the risk of any interaction between contrast media dye and metformin. Consuelo Worley, RPh Q: I am 32 years old and was recently placed on metformin mg.
The first night I took it I wet my bed. Is this a side effect of metformin? Glucophage metformin is an oral medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. According to the FDA approved drug information, nocturia excessive nighttime urination is not a side effect of metformin. The most common side effects of metformin are diarrhea, gas, headache, indigestion, nausea, stomach upset, temporary metallic taste, and vomiting.

Both brand-name and generic drug manufacturing facilities must follow the same standards of good manufacturing practices and meet the U. Food and Drug Administration Q: I went to my dermatologist about my hair loss and she prescribed metformin. I'm not sure if the benefit would outweigh any risk?
Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood glucose sugar levels. Metformin is used to treat type 2 diabetes, either alone or in combination with insulin or other diabetes medications. These uses have not been approved by the U.
Food and Drug Administration and are often referred to as "unlabeled," "off-label," or "unapproved" uses. A search of a drug database and the medical literature found that metformin is sometimes used "off-label" to treat conditions when women have too much of a type of hormone called androgens.
These conditions can include polycystic ovary disease. Hair loss in women is often caused by too much of these androgen hormones. High androgen levels can be linked to high insulin levels and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is when the tissues and muscles of the body no longer use insulin effectively. The body reads this as the muscles needing more insulin, so it produces more insulin. He did better on it but he would not gain weight.

Introduction Following on from the success of the launch volume of Case Studies in , we are very pleased to present a second collection of new clinical cases. In , a website was added stahlonline. The Case Studies shows how to apply the concepts presented in these previous books to real patients in a clinical practice setting. Why a case book? For practitioners, it is necessary to know the science and application of psychopharmacology — namely, both the mechanism of action of psychotropic drugs and the evidence-based data on how to prescribe them — but this is not sufficient to become a master clinician.
Many patients are beyond the data and are excluded from randomized controlled trials. Thus, a true clinical expert also needs to develop the art of psychopharmacology: The art of psychopharmacology is especially important when confronting the frequent situations where there is no evidence on which to base a clinical decision.
What do you do when there is no evidence? The short answer is to combine the science with the art of psychopharmacology.
