Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Was on Metformin (1000 mg per day), which was recently increased with a goal of 2000 mg per day (gradual increase). In the AM, I usually start with a cup of coffee, then breakfast, followed by more coffee (two cups per day). I take metformin immediately following meals. I fix up my coffee with organic half & half, and pure stevia. When drinking coffee, or dairy products, I experience severe upset stomach, without bowl and abdominal sounds. Is it possible I developed a form of lactose intolerance? This is the "only" dairy I use and prefer to use unsweetened almond milk in place of dairy, except for coffee. This morning, as an experiment, I decided not to fix any coffee and the symptoms have subsided so far today.

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I've been taking Lovaza for approx 3 years as an alternative to Statin drugs. I also to 81mg if asprin daily and now rage 10mg of Avorastatin. For the past 5 months I have been experiencing hear palpitations and sometimes it is severe. My blood pressure has always been excellent. I has a stress test and echocardiogram and wore a Holter monitor for 24 hours. Although the monitor confirmed palpitations, the stress test & echo indicated no problems. This is becoming very uncomfortable at times and I'm starting to wonder if it may not be caused by the Lovaza. My cardiologist acted as if there was little evidence to support any advantage to taking Lovaza but said to continue taking it. He said nothing about any ties between this med and palpitations.
