Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Problems digesting food, bowel irregularity, blood in feces, blood from bowel, extreme bruising, reoccurring acid reflux, fatigue and muscle pain which interrupts physical exercise program.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Have not taken Metformin for 3 days when Vomiting and Diarreha came on suddenly.


  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Notice in the drug list that several drugs are necessary to counteract the effects of other drugs, e.g., I have moderate sleep apnea. That started me on Dexedrine, which was replaced with provigil to stop the crash after the dex wore off. But, now I use Ambien because the provigil dose that will do away with sleepiness keeps me awake more than 16 hours, etc.
    Byetta sometimes causes nausea. So, I find myself craving starches to settle my stomach, which raises my glucose level (Type 2 diabetic), which partically negates the purpose of the byetta.
    Too many drug interactions.
