@Desta88 - Here's an article about it: http://www.healthline.com/health/diabetes/bad-breath#2 I know that the breath changes when the blood sugar is high. To me it smells like juicy fruit gum. But that smell goes away when the blood sugar returns to normal levels. Hope this helps!

- Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
- Pantopraz sod 40mg,retaining alot of fluids
I am retaining a lot of fluids from my hips and down to my feet and believe its from taking pantoprazole,and I mean everything,its scary,has anyone been down this road?
- I experienced fatigue, muscle aches and twitches with asacol
Was taking 2 tablets 3x per day for a month and a half and began having muscle twitches, muscle and joint aches and fatigue severe enough people noticed I couldn't find correct words to finish my sentences. I stopped taking it and it has taken almost three weeks to feel human and energetic again. People thought I had Mono. It DID however put my colitis into remission!
- Metformin, vision blurred
My primary care physician prescribed Metformin for type 2 Diabetes. First pill caused "wobbly" then blurred vision within a half hour of taking. Asked doctor if I should stop taking the drug. She said no. Second pill doubled the blurring immediately. Long distance and middle vision (computer screen distance) Lost an entire eye chart of clarity. Saw eye Dr. immediately prior to the incident, saw him immediately after and he did weekly checks until vision returned. Asked primary care Dr. if I should continue taking drug. She said yes. I switched doctors, studied half-life of the drug, stopped taking Metformin and continued with diet and exercise changes to restore blood sugar to pre-diabetic levels. Vision remained blurred about 6 weeks. Increased type size on computer screen to max. Wore two pair of glasses stacked--to see well enough to function. The day long distance vision wobbled again as it returned to almost normal levels, I drank two mugs of blackberry sage decaff. tea. Saw eye doctor, measured vision change. I wondered if the sage (a mild vasodilator) helped my eyes recover after the residual Metformin was out of my system. Eye doctor said he saw no reason not to continue drinking the tea in moderation. One mug a day, several days later, middle vision returned to almost normal, no retinal damage.
I no longer drink sage tea daily, but sounds like a study might be warranted if it can help those of us who have this alarming side effect reaction to Metformin.
